In recognition of Women’s History Month (March) and International Women’s Day (March 8), we’re offering relevant women’s workwear on Stuff We Love. Staff editor Andrea Sorenson joins Marty Dyck for user input on these women-specific products. Watch them in the following video, and then read on for greater detail.
Suadex Women’s Work Safety Shoes
Suadex integrated into a lightweight sport shoe many of the required safety standards normally found in heavy work boots. Those include a steel toe, kevlar puncture resistant inner soles and slip resistant outer soles. The synthetic mesh uppers are more breathable than ordinary work shoes, and the convenient cinch laces will keep your laces from tripping you up. These are great safety shoes for all day on a job site, but they’re also stylish and comfortable enough for plain old everyday wear.
Dovetail Workwear’s Freshley Bib Overall
Dovetail is a company founded by women that makes terrific women’s workwear. These overalls reinvent a classic piece to fit and move on a woman’s body. Flexible suspenders, double-front reinforced thigh and gusseted crotch panels allow for unlimited movement. There are 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. Andrea really liked 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.
Dovetail Workwear Britt Utility Pant
With many of the same quality features as the Dovetail Freshly overalls, the Britt Utility pants are an upgraded version of the common double knee work pants for guys. These pants have reinforced panels in high stress areas like the knee, thigh and rear cuff, plus rivets at key stress points. The pockets are amazing in depth, variety, placement and utility, allowing plenty of options for tools and personal items. The straight leg cut is specifically for a women’s body with a mid-rise contoured waist. Like the Dovetail overalls these are available in denim, lined denim or stretch canvas. Dovetail recommends sizing up when ordering canvas. Smartly designed and built to last, the Britt Utility Pants are worth every penny.
