WHY SHOULD I BUY FROM YOU?
In 10 years of teaching and competing professionally, I had a frustrating time finding men's dance clothing that looked and fit the way I wanted them to. I was paying $300+ for custom pants that had velcro closures on the waistband and a style that was from the mid-90s. The nicest pants I've owned took over 3 months to get to my doorstep.
When you teach and practice 30-50 hours per week, you really wish stuff like getting pants was a much easier thing to do. Thus, the MensDancePants.com was born. All our products are designed after that world-champion look. From the choice of crisp material, to the sewn in creases, to the unique belt loops, our stuff is designed to look great while being as versatile and wearable as possible. No other men's dance clothing company offers products with the same details.
I'm so confident that you'll love our stuff, that we back all of our non-closeout, non-shoe items with, not a 100% money-back guarantee, but a 110% guarantee. You won't find that anywhere else.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE PANT TO ORDER?
Take a tape measure and wrap it around your midsection at or just below your belly button. This is where the pants should sit. Pull the tape so it's snug, and take note of the measurement. This is your size. If you happen to be in between sizes, then take a look at your legs. If you have thinner or "average" thigh thickness, go down a size. If you've got more muscular thighs, go up.
Keep in mind, however, that our New Basic Latin pants have some stretch in the waistband (the Tuxedo has none), so you may want to go a size down. For example, if I measured "30" just below my belly button, I'd order a "29" in the New Basic, a size "30" in the New Tux, and size "30"s in all the closeout styles.
Regardless, you can take them to a tailor to tweak them just right. The pants are built to be taken in or let out up to an inch.
Also, in terms of length, the pants come with an un-hemmed 36" inseam. Long enough for the freakishly tall. Yao Ming tall.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY PANTS?
They are designed to be pretty low maintenance. Just machine wash them in cold water and hang dry them. Then iron them at as low a temperature as possible. Also, don't slide around on the floor wearing them, or any pants for that matter.
HOW ABOUT ALTERATIONS?
As these are off the rack pants, they need to be hemmed before you can wear them. Take them to a tailor and bring whatever dance shoes you plan on wearing with them. Tell the tailor to hem them up about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch above the floor while you're wearing your shoes.
A good tailor can also take the pants out and bring them in as necessary.
Now, for most of our customers, nothing but a hem needed to be put in for the pants to look and fit nicely. If you are a procrastinator and have a competition the day after you receive your pants, here's what you can do to get by without a tailor:
- Find 8 small black safety pins. (Target or Walmart).
- Put the pants on and roll up the right leg to where it needs to be and pin it so it doesn't move.
- Take the pants off and flip them inside out. Fold the left leg up so that it matches the right side's length and pin it in 4 places.
- Unpin the right side and redo it to match the left.
- Flip the pants right side out and iron the creases in. This should carry you through the comp until you can have them properly hemmed.
DO YOU OFFER ANY OTHER SIZES?
Right now, sizes from 28 to 40 is all we've got. We just don't have enough demand to carry anything smaller or larger than that.
OH NO! OUT OF STOCK IN MY SIZE? WHAT NOW?
Don't panic. Email us and let us know what size, style, and quantity you need and by when. Normally, we can replenish out of stock items within a couple weeks.
DO YOU HAVE OTHER COLORS OR STYLES?
Unfortunately, no we don't everything we've got is listed on the site right now.
CAN YOU MAKE ME A CUSTOM PAIR OF PANTS?
Unfortunately, no we cannot. You can try dancepants.com though.
HOW LONG 'TIL I GET MY ORDER?
We normally ship USPS Priority on the next business day. For example, you order on Monday night. Your items will go out Tuesday and you should receive them by Friday at the latest. For legality's sake, I'm going to say that shipment takes 3-5 days, but on the hush-hush, many of our customers get their orders in 2-3.
WHAT SHIPPING OPTIONS DO YOU HAVE?
We normally ship via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation.
We used to offer an overnight option, but FedEx charged $75 for this service AND it was often unreliable. We had some customers receiving their FedEx packages 2 or 3 days late. That's why we no longer offer the overnight option.
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
Unfortunately, we do not. We only ship to the United States.
I JUST BOUGHT AN ITEM A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND IT'S CHEAPER TODAY. CAN I GET A PRICE ADJUSTMENT?
Sorry, we do not offer price adjustments.
HOW CAN I PAY?
We only accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover. This is for your protection as well as ours. No checks, money orders, barter, or CODs. Does anyone even use CODs anymore?
HOW DO I EXCHANGE FOR ANOTHER SIZE?
It's not a problem at all. As long as the items are in resalable condition, you can exchange them within 60 days.
See the Returns & Exchanges page for more details and exact instructions.
