    Machine wash or handwash in lukewarm water.

**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.

Amazingly comfortable pants

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

His stomach does not spill out over his pants when he wears your slacks :)

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.

Great pants

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.
