I'm a male, if that matters. Everything I see besides the highest end stuff is polyester.
LOL! I've never ever seen polyester ones.

Wash them inside out and use a lint brush or tape wrapped around your hand inside-out. Uniforms or ladies?

Even DIOR pieces are mixed with polyester and they are over $1000 each. Polyester helps fabrics keep their shape.

The thing about polyester is that is harbors odors. If it looks ok and smells ok, then it is ok. I know that a polyester blouse needs to be washed after every wearing because otherwise it smells. It is why I don't buy it anymore.

Not to give you a hard time, but they just sound like crappy pants. If you get a better quality pair of pants, it will save you a lot of aggravation.

Some fabrics just attract a ton of lint. You might find another pair of pants, same fiber content (polyester) and same color, but they don't get all fuzz covered.

It's one of the Mysteries of the Universe.

Try some other pants, and, next time, if fabric attracts lint return the item.

I know, right? I have some cotton slacks from J Jill. They might have a bit of Lycra in them, but these pants are always covered in lint. I finally just gave up wearing them.
