I got these RTW pants on short notice due to sudden weather change, but as soon as I put them on and started fastening the buckles, they just snapped and fell out. I contacted Yeossal about this is the response was to basically either take them to a tailor to fix them there (on my own) or wait for them to send me the buckles so I can once again take them to a tailor and fix them on my own accord, and that this issue was going to be passed onto higher management.
While I like the design and creativity behind Yeossal’s products, this experience with my first order left an uncertain feeling.
Moreover, the pants seem to be low to mid rise, which means they will just slide down to just above the hips after a few hours of wearing and the shirt tucked in would come out easily, as is the case when I wear another pair from Yeossal, the duck canvas Gurkha.
On top of these issues, the denim fabric feels rather cheap and lacking in drape and weight. It basically feels like thin cardboard to the touch. Maybe this will sort itself out after a few wears and a wash, but the broken buckles prevent me from testing that theory.
The one good thing is the workmanship and the quality and amount of stitching that I can observe. The designers obviously took care to put in all their thought into the stitching.
