**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.

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.

Sansabelt is a solid brand

I ordered what i thought were sansabelt from a company that said their pants were identical.
I was very disappointed when their waistband which looked like yours started to peel away and crumble after several washes.

By (Orange, Texas) (Van Sharkskin (Poly, Pleats/Side Pockets, 4 Colors)) :

look good--washed 3 times

i like how they hold up after washing, still they need to be ironed a little.
