Size

Lose length, not function in sweet striped work shorts.

No need to take the shears to your favorite work pants anymore. We did it for you. But without selling you short on the details that make it Dovetail. Based on our original Maven Slim pant, these work shorts skimp only on length. Peep those pockets! We packed a pantload of them (10!) into streamlined, slim-fit striped shorts. No cargo vibes here. Because you’re a maven, not a mule.

FEATURES

  • Slim leg. Same fit as Maven Slim pant, with extra ease through hip and leg
  • Mid-rise waist. Let’s meet in the middle.
  • 10 pockets. For real.
  • Hip Slot™. Just clip it.
  • Tool loop. Hammer time.
  • Crotch gusset. Free the squat.

The inseam of these shorts is  9 1/2" long. They hit most women above the knee.

We are super stoked to work with our friends at Tuk Tuk in India, who made these wabash shorts for us. A WRAP Platinum facility partnered with Intermode, Tuk Tuk is a sustainability star, milling gorgeous fabrics onsite as well as making them into clothes. An onsite organic veg garden also provides lunches for workers.

Vintage stripes from a modern mill.

Our Indigo Stripe denim gives a nod to the heritage workwear, and the days when great-great-great grandma helped build the railways. But this stretch denim has more stretch, softness, and drape than the OG. And it comes from a mill known for its exceptional attention to sustainability and craft.

  • Midweight indigo stripe denim
  • Fabric weight: 8 oz denim
  • Fabric content: 99% BCI cotton / 1% spandex

You got ‘em dirty, now get ‘em clean.

We get it's tempting to wash those dirty shorts in hot water and tumble dry the hell out of them. But like any high-quality tool, this one will last longer with TLC. Heat messes with our special stretch sauces and secret weatherizing potions. And it can shrink, warp, and otherwise damage the fine fabrics that make Dovetail Workwear sturdy, comfortable, and tough on the job. So for a long life, wash cold, and hang dry or tumble low. The planet will thank you too.

  • Wash cold.
  • Hang dry.
  • If you must tumble, tumble low to damp dry.

New favorite work shorts

I'm 5'6", 112 lbs., 26 waist, 36 hip and size 2 fits well, although the waistband seems to come up weirdly high in back when standing (the pants version I have in the same size does not do it to this extent)... but I'd much rather have that than the opposite problem! Maybe I just have chicken legs, but the bottom 2 inches seem to flare out a little. Maybe there is a functional reason for this? It does make them easy to roll up a little bit on days when I don't need all the pockets (but OMG the pockets!!!). I wear these mainly for outdoor electrical work, which some days is just digging and moving rocks. I wish they came in another color (besides white) so I could get another pair!

Love these shorts!

These shorts are great to get to work in. Super comfy and I looove the stripes. They also make my butt look awesome which is a plus.

Stripe Love

Love the stripe on these great shorts. Having only worn the Britt, I was pleasantly surprised that the Maven was just as good of a fit. Being a little vertically challenged ie short legs, I will be hemming my shorts about an inch

Almost there...

I currently own these maven shorts as well as the maven pants and the cristina pants. My biggest complaint is that the pockets/hammer loops are slightly different in each of them. Why change the cell phone pocket to the left side for the shorts? Super annoying if you are used to it being on the right.

The fit on these is a little awkward - Tight in the upper thigh and loose lower down. I worry that in true heat/sweat these will be clingy and terrible to wear. I wish there was a 7 inch inseam option as well.

Again, these are almost there and I will continue to wear them on the worksite as much as possible.
