How do Dovetail pants, tops, and accessories fit?
See our Size Guide page with details about our sizes, fabrics, and fits.
Where can I try on Dovetail products?
We are thrilled that various local and national retailers have started carrying Dovetail. See our Stores/Where To Buy page for our current store locations.
What if I discover that my size is out of stock?
We sincerely apologize. It's exciting that our products sell so quickly, but we want every woman to get what she wants!!
If your size is out, please consider putting your name and info on our backorder list which you'll see on each of our product pages if something is sold out. Your email address will be put on a priority list and you will be notified first when more products become available again.
Our products sell out rapidly in certain sizes (particularly pants). To solve for this, we occasionally "pre-sale" select Dovetail products. With a pre-sale, you pay for your item(s) in advance of production, guaranteeing that you will get exactly what you want before it sells out.
When will Dovetail Workwear offer inclusive pant sizes?
All of our pant products are from size 000-18 in four inseams: 28", 30", 32", & 34". And as of Spring 2019 we now have more inclusive sizing--up to size 24 in every style (select fabrications) of our pants. And tops will also go up to size 2XL by Fall 2019. Sincere gratitude for your patience and please send feedback on how you are finding these fits.
What are your sourcing and manufacturing practices, and where are your clothes sewn?
Dovetail Workwear values strong, sustainable relationships with our manufacturers. We're sourcing denim from Cone Denim Oeko-Tex certified facilities. We sew our pants in Merida, Mexico. Our denim sewing factory was intentionally chosen for its state-of-the-art water treatment facility as well as the fact that it is a gold-standard facility regarding labor, environmental, and community practices. It is run by a female-led management team. All of our supply and manufacturing partners have been selected with exacting standards for artisan craftsmanship and quality, ethical practices.

Our domestic shipping rates are:

|1-3lb||$7.95||Pair of pants or overalls, a top|
|3+||$11.95||Multiple pairs of pants or tops|
- Returns: Free shipping on domestic returns (woot woot!) Unfortunately, we do not cover return shipping fees for international returns at this time, but have a growing retail footprint, especially in Canada.
- Shipping times are usually pretty quick for domestic orders (3-5 days). International times depend on specific geographical and logistical conditions.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we are happy to ship internationally. The carrier may vary depending on destination. Shipping rates are a pass-through cost to the purchaser. Rates and times are location specific, depending address and weight.
Please be warned: There have been reports of very high border taxes being applied on international orders. Any such fees, including customs, tariffs, border fees, and other charges are the responsibility of the purchaser. Dovetail Workwear cannot control these fees. For more information, please see our Shipping page.
Are Dovetail Workwear pants preshrunk?
Yes, they have one wash during manufacturing to avoid shrinkage issues. For environmental reasons, we choose not to set our dyes with chemicals or repeat wash our fabrics.
How do I wash my Dovetail Workwear products?
Machine wash cold with like colors. Fasten hardware on overalls to avoid banging around in the washer or dryer.
We strongly recommend line-drying your Dovetail Workwear garment. Tumble-drying is hard on clothing, and can lead to fabric deterioration, color loss, shrinkage, warped elastic, and broken hardware. If you must tumble-dry, fasten all hardware and turn inside out. Dry on low, and take them out before they're crispy-dry and finish by line-drying.
If you work with or around drywall, we have had people report that the indigo dye on the Maven Slim in Power Stretch Denim can rub off within the first few weeks or months. The more you wash them, the less this is a problem, but please be careful in these situations as the indigo may transfer.
