SIZE & FIT
The cut, make, and fabric are very high quality. This is a great pair of trousers for the price. You are unlikely to find anything comparable from any other suppliers without paying a lot more. The only flaw is the buckle, which seems flimsy and cheap as pointed out by others. The cut is high-rise and comes to my natural waist. The look is elegant and classy. The color is also great. I bought the olive green and it trends between olive and brown. A great shade of green that you don't see every day. Props to Yeossal.
I bought this RTW pair of pants because I suddenly found myself in need of quick wardrobe upgrade due to unexpected weather change. I had been looking at Yeossal products online for a while and an excuse to finally try them was quite welcome. But my experience ended up being quite less pleasant than I hoped.
First, the good: the pants fit me well in a standard size with the exception of the length, which is always an easy and expected alteration for RTW. I have quite a high seat (i.e. big ass) and thick football legs, so good fit out of the box was very welcome. The shipping was quite quick, though not super fast as for RTW. Overall quality of workmanship is really pleasing too, good sturdy stitching everywhere and no shortcuts.
But now the not-so-good...
first of all, the buckle is really thin and flimsy. The buckles on another pair I bought along with this one, the denim Gurkha, snapped and broke pretty much as soon as I put the pants on. I expect this buckle to snap soon as well. Second, the fabric itself feels somehow cheap - it’s just not very substantial and doesn’t have a good drape, though it looks very nice due to texture and colour variation. Finally, and most importantly... these pants are actually low-rise! I can’t understand it myself, but time and time again they just end up on my hips way below the natural waist. Compared to all my high-rise bespoke and MTM pants, these feel like they are still something from a fast fashion mall. I’m sure adding a few centimetres to the rise would not jeopardise any customers who haven’t tried it yet. I can’t see how anyone could go back to wearing low-rise after trying proper rise in their pants. The comfort and fit are just beyond compare. But as a result of such a low rise and possibly a slightly wider fit in the waist than I really need, any shirt tucked into these would normally come out and form that unsightly bulge of fabric around my waist.
So in conclusion, although I think these pants are a definite upgrade from fast fashion, they still feel like they belong to a fast fashion shop, and the quality of hardware is so low that I’m afraid they will be rendered useless very soon. After which I will have a hard time justifying their repair since I am not happy with the rise anyway and might as well plan to order an MTM to be completely satisfied.
Fits wonderfully and looks great.
Fits beautifully and very well tailored! Proportions are impeccable. Will be purchasing more from them soon!
A wonderful blend of utility, comfort, and style. I'm 185cm tall and 84kg and a 34 fits as if they were mtm. I chose the olive which I think is a great shade, and the fabric while sturdy, is soft and has a nice texture to it. I recommend a pair or three.
