**To Open the Back Pocket: As with the finest tailored pants, we offer one pocket sewn shut for a smooth look and recommend using the other button pocket for wallets, etc. However, you may still open it easily. Grab a tiny pair of cuticle scissors or a seam ripper and carefully cut, stitch by stitch.
Slim Axle Bengaline (Poly Wool, Top, Western Pockets/Flat Front, 10 Colors, Sizes 30-40)
Our new Modern Fit is perfect for men who a slightly trimmer cut than our classic cut pants. Straight legs, a flat front with western-style top pockets, plus a hint of spandex keep this textured, lightweight, poly/wool weave looking good and staying wrinkle-free, day into night. Please note these are not a tight fit--they still have roomy legs but have approximately 2 to 3 inches less fabric in the seat and thigh areas to accomodate men who tend to be leaner from the waist down. Remember to measure around your belly button to get your proper waist size. We suggest going up a size if you are used to a classic fit as this Slim Axle style is slimmer in the seat, rise and legs, so if you are a size 40 in our classic fit, you may find a 42 is more comfortable. If this is your first order in this style, we strongly recommend ordering your pants unaltered at a full 37" length (no hemming) and without belt loops, and leaving the tags on so you can return them if the fit is not right for you. We regret hemmed pants are not returnable.
Reminder: For the most comfortable fit, we recommend going up one waist size.
Our exclusive SANSABELT 2 1/2" Comfort Elastic Waistband smooths your midsection and keeps your shirt neatly tucked in! It's sturdy enough hold up to sweat, pressure and twisting and to withstand dozens of washes.
Thanks for the slim cut
Picked them up in three shades of blue and also the tan. Fit is perfect.
Can you do one thing--please!!
I think these pants are awesome. I have 6 pair. The stitching is topnotch and the colors are great. But I need this slim fit in an all wool fabric with lining. If you ever bring that in, I'll buy a dozen. Long live sansabelt!!
Not what I hoped for
This is the third pair of slim axle Bengaline pants I have purchased. This particular pair of pants did not fit as well as the other two I had previously purchased as the fit was slightly larger despite them being the same waist size. I was also not really happy with the color. I ordered them in brown but the color is so unusual that in certain lighting they appear to be almost charcoal. Unfortunately I cannot return the pants because I had the length altered.
Thank you for your product review on our website. We always welcome feedback, whether it is positive or negative. We do not doubt your experience, however, we take great steps to ensure all the slacks available on our website are cut to the same identical measurements. Frankly we are stumped by how one could differ from the rest if all have the same waist size and cut. We would like to help. Can you could kindly take a tape measure to the pair you feel is larger and measure across the waist with the pant lying flat on a table, and also measure across on the thigh, 6 inches below the crotch seam, then compare these measurements with one of your previous pairs. Please email this information to Linda in customer support. As for color, this is an issue for all online stores--everybody's monitor shows color differently and why we urge people to purchase unhemmed slacks if they have precise color needs.
My body is so small below my belly and these don't bag.
Fit like a glove
I sized up in the waist like you recommend the fit is great. My family is on notice that these are my wished for presents for christmas and birthdays!
They fit well
There is too much room in the seat in the classic fit. These slim fits suit my husband's body well.
I have 6 pair of these and they wash up good.
Went up one size like you rec.
The size 34 which I normally take were a bit snug at the waist. I returned for a 36 and they are PERFECT. The fabric is soft and does not give me a rash like wool pants sometimes do.
SUPER COMFORTABLE. I wear a belt with them but I keep it lose because I can :)
Husband has 3 pair
They fit. Good sewing and nice lite fabric.
