Microfiber Performance Trouser in Black (Hampton Plain Front) by Berle
When you think of the traditional fabrics that you turn to when assembling a wardrobe, microfiber probably isn’t on the list. Things like wool and cotton are going to be staples, and perhaps some other options will make their way into your closet as well. With that said, men’s microfiber pants have a lot to offer, and they should not be overlooked. Berle is proud to offer quality microfiber performance trousers in both flat front and pleated designs.
PLENTY TO LIKE
For the gentleman on the go, microfiber is a great material to hold up to the rigors of the day. For starters, it offers a comfortable feel, so you won't be held back by the fit of your pants. Also, it has wrinkle-, stain- and water-resistant properties, so it can hold up to a bit of punishment and still look great. If you find yourself in situations that are not suitable for something delicate like a pair of wool trousers, microfiber is a great alternative. And don’t worry—although they offer plenty of benefits on the performance side, these pants still look just as great as any other pair of Berle trousers.

After immigrating to the United States from Poland in the early 1900s, brothers Philip and Hyman Berlinsky opened New York Tailors, a men's clothing store, on King Street in historic Charleston, S.C. Philip, who was considered a master of his trade and who could work miracles with a needle and thread, often custom-made pants upon request from his customers. After World War II ended in 1946, the brothers decided to open their own trouser manufacturing company. They named the company Berle Manufacturing, which they considered to be an appropriate abbreviation of Berlinsky.
Eventually, the brothers decided to separate the retailing and the manufacturing sides of the business and split them amongst the family. Hyman and his family took over New York Tailors, while Philip and his four sons, Maurice, Herbert, Danny and Norman went with Berle.
A discovery by Philip's son, Herbert, put the company in league with major trouser manufacturers. While on a trip to Florence, S.C., Herbert heard about a new model of trousers that all the young boys were requesting. It was called an “up flaps model,” instead of the traditional “down flaps” model. He had a tailor there make him a pair and brought them back to Charleston where they took off and became one of the hottest models sold in the Southeast for the next 10 years.Today, the company is run by the 4th generation of family who possess an in depth knowledge of the fashion retail industry. The commitment to deliver fashionable, comfortable and quality apparel is still as strong today as it was when the company was founded.
