Just in time for cold weather, a post with Tradlands to showcase what they’re doing to keep folks cozy this winter, plus a quick note to say that since it’s Giving Tuesday, we’re doing a little something different this time around. In addition to offering readers a discount on all of the beautiful shirts Tradlands has in stock, the company will be giving 25% of proceeds generated through this post directly to charity. (Details on all that below.)
Committed as ever to making American-made and menswear-inspired clothes for women, Tradlands launched four new utility shirt jackets for this winter (along with a slew of cozy flannels and beloved sweatshirts). The Haines Utility Shirt Jacket I’m wearing above is a classic woolen coat in neutral shades of oatmeal, gray, and black. It’s roomy enough to layer over sweaters or sweatshirts, but slim enough to fit comfortably underneath a heavier parka for when those winter storms roll in.
The Haines is cut from a thick wool blend (69% Wool, 28% Poly, 3% Nylon) and sewn in the United States. You might think of these as your grandpa’s well-loved utility jacket, tailored to meet your needs.
I layered it here with the Dogpatch flannel—a shirt that I think it’s safe to say is the very softest flannel I’ve worn to date. (Note: I sized up with these button ups to make them work over my pregnant belly—but they fit true to size!)
For folks who might be sensitive to wool, the Aspen Navy is a cozy alternative. It’s made from a heavy cotton-knit blend (98% cotton, 2% Lycra) that’s super warm without being too heavy.
Like every made by Tradlands, the jackets are beautifully sewn and impeccably tailored. I love the thick seams and large buttons on these utility jackets.
In this shot, I’m wearing the Navy Utility Shirt Jacket over the super-soft Bobbie, a classic button-down oxford shirt made from organic cotton. It’s a thinner weight than the flannel shirts, but similarly soft and comfortable.
Here, I’m wearing the Aspen Grey Utility Shirt Jacket. Like the Aspen Navy, the utility jacket is cut from a thick cotton-blend and tailored to fit neatly, but not too snugly.
I’m wearing my jacket over the Ava tee in the beautiful Brunswick green. (Here again, I sized up to fit my belly, but the tees fit true to size!)
To help you stock up on cold-weather staples, Tradlands is offering Reading My Tea Leaves customers $25 off orders of $100 or more with the code hellowinter. All Tradlands customers enjoy free shipping and returns in the US. (International shipping is also available: $5 to Canada and $10 to everywhere else.)
And because today is #GivingTuesday, Tradlands has decided that in addition to offering RMTL readers a discount, they’re giving 25% of all proceeds generated from this post to The Center for Constitutional Rights, a nonprofit legal and educational organization dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Issues the CCR actively fights against include abusive immigration practices, corporate human rights abuses, discriminatory policing and profiling, LGBTQI persecution, racial injustice, sexual and gender-based violence, as well as torture and war crimes.
The hellowinter discount code and donation period both end at midnight PST on December 25, 2016.
