**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.

Great fabric. Need more colors in the pleats.

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

A great product

 Report abuse

The only beltless pants I see out there that actually look like high priced tailored slacks.
Your seams hold up--I have several pair from last year that have been abused playing with my grandkids--and the fabric really has a great look and feel. Keep upo the good work.

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

Pants just arrived. Top notch!

 Report abuse

Excellent fit. I don't look heavy in yoru pleats. The fabric is like a silk wool but best of all you can wash it.

One Classy pant

Just wish you could add some grays and a navy--I'd buy em both. They hold up well and look sharp.

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

Great service--fast shipping.

I am a 42 waist and the pants I ordered fit better than any other pants I have in my closet. I am a customer for life.

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

Like the fabric

 Report abuse

This sharkskin fabric is classy--although I was worried when I ordered it. Better than we expected. My boyfriend wears the taupe or the black with sports jacket and he no longer complains about having to dress up because the waist is so comfortable. I only wish you had navy and gray. I'd scoop them up in a minute.

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

Thank you!!

I couldn't find a decent, dressy pair of pants for a man my size. Most pants over size 50 are cheap and fall apart. These sharkskin pants are top of the line and the grip waist is the only one i can wear anymore. Thank you! And if you ever leave again, I will hunt you down ;)

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

Good dress pant

But I need colors besides black and taupe. Please come out with some grays and navys.

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

Easy care/good look

 Report abuse

My wife says these are easy to wash and dry but better still, she says I look great in them. I am a bit overweight at 5'7", 190lbs and she thinks I look slim. I'll take it!

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

wrinkle free??????????

 Report abuse

Washed them but they wrinkled. I thought they were wrinkle free!

I'm sorry for your experience, however, our pants are not wrinkle free--they are wrinkle-resistant. You did not mention what water and dryer temperature settings you used. If they were hot settings, wrinkles are likely. If you use lukewarm water and line dry or toss them in the dryer at a cool setting, removing them promptly, you will find few, and often, no wrinkles. You may also touch them up with a cool iron if you want to reinforce the crease.
