**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.

A favorite

 Report abuse

My wife loves these because she can put them in the washer and if she takes them out while they're slightly damp, they line dry without needing an iron.

By (Washington crossing, Pennsylvania) (Van Sharkskin (Poly, Pleats/Side Pockets, 4 Colors)) :

Belt loops? Really?

 Report abuse

It is funny to me that you would offer belt loops or that any man who wears sansabelt would want them. THe whole beauty of these pants is that you can wear them without a belt.

YOU NEED MORE COLORS! I really like how these look but where is navy, gray????

former long rise customer

 Report abuse

I used to order the long rise years ago but find your slacks fit me fine. Just want to say your fabric is really much nicer than the old 1990 pants used to be.

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

Outstanding pants

 Report abuse

More comfortable than my other dress slacks. Even with a belt, if I don't wear it too snug, I get the look of a belt but I get to enjoy a beltless feel cause the pants stay up due to your waistband elastic. Good job!

Game changer

 Report abuse

I am replacing all my pants with Sansabelt slacks. This fabric is beyond rich in its look an d feel.
I have four of the six colors only because you ran out of my size in two of them. I am a new customer who heard about you through a friend at work and I am looking forward to seeing what else you come out with. Also as a younger guy, with a bit of a gut, I like how these fit me without any pulling like the fake sansabelt pants I used to wear which were cheaply made.

Good fabric that doesn't look bunched up

 Report abuse

THe sharkskin is a fabric I avoided but then I got the swatch card from you and saw it was much nicer than it sounds. When I sit, I don't feel like I have tons of fabric in my lap bec. the pleats don't go inward but face out. I highly recommend.

By (CARMEL, Indiana) (Van Sharkskin (Poly, Pleats/Side Pockets, 4 Colors)) :

Ideal for me

 Report abuse

Very comfortable. I wear an overshirt or polo so my belts are now history. Need navy and tan.

Do you hem 2 different lengths?

 Report abuse

I have two pair of these and they fit well except for one thing. I have to take all my pants to be shortened one inch on the left side bec. my left leg is shorter than my right. Can you do this for me if I order my next pair hemmed?

Yes, we absolutely will hem your pants to your specifications. If one leg is shorter than the other, please either write the hem length you would like in the notes section of your order or call us after you've placed it and we'll make sure everything is done the way you like it. We currently have a handful of customers who request different lengths and we are happy to accommodate.
