**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.

Van Sharkskin (Pleated Front Side Pockets)

The Van Sharkskin, in 100% natural-stretch microfiber poly, features 2-reverse pleats with roomy side pockets. This fabric has a subtle weave (click on the pant in taupe to really appreciate it) and a matte (no-shine) finish. The fabric's luxurious feel along with the elegant front pleats make it a classic dress pant.  We've positioned the pleats so they face outward, so you never have to worry about the fabric bunching up when you sit.  Roomy, straight leg fit.

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.

Amazingly comfortable pants

 Report abuse

The fabric is light but rich looking like silk. They do need ironing for the crease to stay as sharp as I like it.

well made, good fabric

I was a tailor for over 50 years. These pants are made like the designer suit slacks I used to tailor. I will also say that if I did not know this was microfiber I never would have guessed. Good job, Sansabelt. Let's have some 100% wools even if you have to charge more.

I bought all 3 colors for my boyfriend and he says they are lightweight and super comfy!! I am a seamstress and these are quality seams and truly a fine fabric for this price.

Always out of stock

I wore sansabelt exclusively in the 70's when many retailers in my area carried them. I could joy find for years then viola the google search linked me together. Hopes were high! Now after numerous and I do mean numerous efforts to purchase sale and non sale they have NEVER HAD MY SIZE 36, how difficult is it to keep size 36? Pretty common size huh? Great pant messed up website. UGH still no Sansabelt trousers in my closet.

We are going back into production on our Sharkskin slacks and your size back will be back up on our website in late Fall. Size 36 does sell out quickly and it is not possible to just go back and make one or two sizes and maintain a good price. We are sorry to disappoint you and hope you will try us again at the end of the year.

These are the old, elegant style that remind me of Bogie and Grant. Solidly made. Usually throw on a belt but bec. the pants stay up I don't make it tight.

I just received my order for Van Sharkskin Sansabelt slacks. The material surpassed my expectations. It looks and feels like quality suit material. Washability and stain resistance still to be evaluated.

Thank you for
