Maven Slim Work Short in Indigo Stripe Denim

Rated 4.4 out of 5
Based on 14 reviews

Regular price $65

Lose length, not function.

You don't need to take the shears to your favorite work pants anymore. We did it for you. Without selling you short on the details that make it Dovetail. Based on our original Maven Slim workpant, these shorts skimp only on length. A pantload of pockets (10!). Tool loop for your hammer. Hip slot to clip your tape measure. Plus we added a crotch gusset so you move easy. All of this streamlined into a stylish, slim-fit short. No clunky cargo vibes here. Because you’re a maven, not a mule.

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.

Great work short!

Owning a pair of work shorts that readily accepts my tape measure and level, is a time saver for me.

They are very comfortable all around.

Dream work shorts

I’m anxiously awaiting warmer days to get a chance to wear these to work! They are super comfy, offer great coverage and lots of pockets. They could be a little higher in the front but they’re comfortable for bending and squatting. The fabric feels durable yet stretchy and not too thick for summer comfort. Can’t wait to live in these!

Cargo Shorts

I own a pair of the Britt Utility and Maven Slim jeans and marvel at the fit, the construction, the fabric and the craftsmanship. The best pants I have ever purchased. I decided to try the new cargo shorts, and they do not disappoint. I like the lighter weight pinstripe fabric with the same great fit. The strategically placed pockets on all the pants are so great, a melding of form, function and beauty.

I would like to see these shorts in a greater range of colors and fabrics. Another line of shorts with a looser leg, perhaps in the gray Britt Utility fabric would be awesome.

Weird Cut

I have looooooved all of my previous Dovetail gear, but I feel like the shorts were mis-manufactured. They were super low cut in the front and CRAZY high in the back. I tried them on several times, but ended up returning them. Bummed because I live in my other Dovetails and was looking forward to some shorts for the summer. Please make more!!! But, more that fit like the pants.

My new Go-to shorts!

I'm thrilled to have a pair of shorts that have all the pockets I need but don't look like a baggy ol' pair of men's cargo shorts. The fit is great and I don't feel like I have to wear my shirt untucked to cover an unattractive waistband. Hey, I may even wear a belt again! All the tips and reviews mentioning sizing helped me select the perfect pair on the first try! Thanks!
