Another great piece from Dovetail. The material is hardworking and durable. I love a slim pant. My only hang up is that the pants somehow seem a bit less flexible than the Britt Utility pants. I usually have issues with other brand pants being too big in the waist, so in a weird twist, these pants only just fit me around the waist. I originally got a 00/30 and exchanged for a 0/30. I wear 0/30 in the Britt as well and it feels more forgiving around the waist. It might be that the Maven are definitely mid-rise (I tend to try to hike all my pants into high-rise!). Overall though, these are durable, beautifully crafted, good-looking pants, and the no-fade black is perfect and essential for my job. Looking forward to wearing these pants for years to come.
