    I think I'd be ashamed to take this to my tailor to hem...

    Maybe this would be a good item to try to hem myself, or bring to a girl that "knows how to sew."

    We all make mistakes. However, That is a 100% polyester mistake. Just return it.

    Not sure why I decided to do this, but I think it might have had to do with the "The patented Sansabelt waistband."

    They are like this, except navy (and I'm not a 48L):
    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-MENS-100-POL...item3360183a1b

    What should I do with these?


    Get them hemmed, get the waist taken in, and wear them. Face the consequences of your choice...this is the only way you will learn your lesson.

    Wear them when you work on your car? Everybody knows odd navy trousers = mechanic.

    That is correct. A belt or suspenders are not needed due to the patented waistband. I'm starting to think I made a huge score. The auction claimed these babies retail for $115.00. I won mine for $19.99 + $5.50 shipping.

    I have a pair of Topman pants that are 71% polyester. They actually look descent and they save unnecessary trips to the dry cleaners. As a negative they do probably lower my sperm count.

    The fact that when you get drunk you buy trousers on ebay is probably more worrying than owning any number of $20 polyester trousers. Just a thought.

    Wearing those pants alleviates you from worrying about sperm count.

    I wish that these were at least a blend. Even 90% poly 10% wool would make me feel better.

    Hey at least I'm not an angry drunk.

    Have you ever owned polyester pants?
