**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 (Poly, Pleats/Side Pockets, 4 Colors)

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 light gray or taupe to really appreciate it) and a matte (no-shine) finish. Sharkskin's luxurious feel along with the elegant front pleats make it a classic dress pant.  If this is your first order, we strongly recommend ordering your pants unaltered (no belt loops or hemming) and leaving the tags on so you can return them if the fit is not right for you. 

Our exclusive SANSABELT 2 1/2" Wide 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.

Looking for more colors light khaki, a bit darker tan or some say camel hair, a light grey, string, I see see this alot as well as iris... Some summer tropics aqua, coral blue & a aqua green... Was hoping to order this year colors just aren't there yet... I have owned sansabelt however that was many years ago & loved that smooth soft light fabric..

Thanks for writing in. We currently have some of the light colors you mention-- a taupe which is like a deep tan in our new Gab Twill with stretch in pleated and flat front side pockets. We also have a Khaki shade--check out our Madison slacks in Light Tan which come in the same two styles. Go to Shop by Fabric and they are the first two items listed. The Madison is a very smooth, light fabric. In mid January, we will have a light gray and a stone which is a cream color in the top western pockets with flat front and the pleated with side pockets. This summer we hope to have some fun light shades in a cotton blend but we haven't selected the fabrics just yet. I appreciate your ideas for colors and I think some tropical shades are absolutely in order :)

I need pants that have more weight. This is a nice fabric but too light for my taste.

Wore Sansabelt slacks before but haven't been able to find them in stores in a long time. Ready to order the Van Sansabelt Sharkskin but you only have them in 4 colors. I am looking for dark brown and light gray. Are more colors in the near future plans? Need more colors!!!!

Thanks for taking time to write in. Light gray is indeed popular and I am not sure why it was never made in the pleated style. If you are looking for a light colored neutral in pleats, you might want to take a look at the new Madison slacks in light tan.
I know our next shipment has a dark gray but production plans for 2020 do include a light gray in pleats so please hand in there. Brown, on the other hand, has never been a big seller. While I am a fan, suspect you won't see it again until we go back to make more polywools.
Sincerely appreciate your input.
