Work Shirts That Actually Work
Any builder knows the value of a really good work shirt. Durability, affordability and comfort are non-negotiables. Thankfully, the days of women stuck wearing men’s shirts in the workshop because of lack of choices are long gone.
Duluth Trading Company’s entire catalog is spectacular, but their women’s flannel shirts really stand out. The fit is snug but comfy, stylish but rugged. I feel like they’re genuinely me, which is probably why I own ten of them.
Go to duluthtrading.com or check out one of its brick-and-mortar stores. Plan on spending $35 to $70. If you shop online, be sure to check out their “Duluth Women” page to learn more about a strong community of female builders and visionaries who are making their marks.
Freshley Bib Overalls
Flexible suspenders, double-front reinforced thighs and gusseted crotch panels allow for unlimited movement. The 13 super functional pockets including a four-pocket bib. There’s also a locker loop for quick hanging, a hammer loop and easy insert access for knee pads.
I like the fit in the waist and thigh and the relaxed fit through the calf. Dovetail has done a fantastic job of designing and manufacturing these rugged, durable pants for DIY women.
