Lose length, not function.

You don't need to take the shears to your favorite work pants anymore. We did it for you - our original work pants, only shorter! You can have all the things you can't live without: the mobility of stretch fabric, the myriad pockets, the modern hammer loop, all in our lightweight 8-oz stretch denim. PLUS we added the gusseted crotch featured in our Britt Utility work pant. All this, yet still not an ill-fitting men's cargo short. These are your Maven Work Shorts tailored for women, by women. Stay cool out there!

Dovetail Workwear developed this fabric as a nod to workwear heritage. Our pinstripe stretch denim has more stretch, softness and drape than original American work materials, but reflects those early patterns valued for their long-lasting wear and ability to absorb stains.

Good fit

Didn't even know I needed these shorts so bad - no purse needed - pockets all over. Fit more flattering than expected. Functional and fun. Could make the bottom (leg hole) a little wider for rolling them up.

LOVE THEM, except...

I love these shorts! They've now gone hiking, climbing, road-tripping, wheeling, and have been a comfortable fit through it all. The fabric is still a little heavy for Texas summers, but drys out quicker than a standard denim or canvas. The stretch is fantastic, and retains shape through some pretty harsh stuff.

However, I really wish these came in a different color. I'm pretty much not allowed to wear white due to EVERYTHING I touch being dirty. I thought I could get away with these shorts since the dark blue pinstripes take up half the material, but they still show dirt and grime surprisingly well. When I try to spot-treat the grease, oil, and dirt stains, the pinstripes blur and become a blue haze. If you all ever come out with a faded grey, brown, or black, count me in for another pair! FWIW, my Freshly Overalls in Black Denim survive my environment GREAT. A lighter-weight fabric of similar color would be what I need!

Run large

I was so excited to get these shorts because I have the maven slim pant in a size 0 and I love them but it's very hot where I live so I was looking forward to a gardening short. Unfortunately, these run very large - at least 1-2 sizes. I had a few inches gaping at the waist and for this price point I cannot justify altering them. So, they're going back. The fabric is nice with some stretch - it's comfortable and looks great. I wish they fit me or had a smaller size! I have a size 25 waist.

Awesome

Received these yesterday and have been wearing them since! I've been wanting Dovetail shorts since I first discovered this brand, and I'm not disappointed. They are true to size; the description is correct that they fit similarly to the black mavens, though I'd say they stretch a tiny bit more. (Great for me, since I prefer shorts to fit more loosely than long pants). The material is thinner than the black Mavens but still feels very sturdy. They well be perfect for warm weather. I like that they are slim fit through the thighs and not flappy like some bermuda-length shorts are. I'm about 5'6" and these reach just below my knees.
