Over the last several decades, women have been lacing up their work boots and tackling jobs typically held by men. It’s a wonderful trend that’s bringing new insights to our nation’s hard-working industries.
According to Business News Daily, that list includes lawyers, chemists, coaches, paramedics, firefighters, and CEOs. Women are also finding room alongside their male counterparts in farming, ranching, plumbing, landscaping, electrical work, construction, and manual labor. Companies like Carhartt and Dovetail have taken it upon themselves to design and create workwear that fits a woman’s body while providing the same durability and versatility found in men’s workwear.
Carhartt for Women
The brand that has revolutionized workwear for men has now stepped up and introduced a full line of clothing for women. Options include outerwear, vests, bib overalls, lined work pants, jeans, hoodies, plaids and flannels, thermal hats, and workwear basics. Sizes range from 2 to 18 in short, regular and tall sizes. Additionally, Carhartt has introduced its Rugged Flex® technology to its line of women’s workwear. Rugged Flex adds stretch, recovery, and durability to shirts, pants, jackets.
Carhartt Original Fit Ladies Crawford Pants
These midweight, rugged canvas work pants have a straight leg and a mid-rise with an original fit and a straight waistband to prevent gaps in the back. They’re tough, but not rigid, and built to last with durable triple-stitched seams and a ton of pockets and loops to hold tools and more.
Carhartt Crawford Double-Front Pants
When you need to be able to move on the job, a pair of double-front pants do the job nicely. These original-fit, mid-rise pants sit just below the waist to combine Rugged Flex® stretch technology with a double-front design and double-layer knees with openings for added knee pads. The Result is a work pant that’s rugged, durable, and perfect for any job.
Fit for the job and capable of anything, Dovetail Workwear strives to encourage women to enter and succeed in non-traditional occupations and fulfill their personal potential, thrive in their work, and strengthen their communities. Every stitch of Dovetail Workwear is designed to be just as strong as men’s workwear, but made to fit a woman’s body, with sizes from 000 to 18 with a 28 to 34 inseam.
Dovetail Freshly Overall Stretch Canvas
Thanks to some design genius and an understanding of what working women need, Dovetail has reinvented this classic bit of workwear with a 10 oz. duck canvas for durability, tons of loops and pockets, and a smart eyelet for twine or other uses. Includes a gusseted crotch, flexible suspenders, double-front knee panels and knee pad openings.
Dovetail Day Construct Pants
Inspired by those who work outside, these pants have a slightly lower front rise, a high back rise, and a relaxed fit to keep you covered no matter what the job.
