• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Though I generally despise actually paying for shipping, I have to say I am (grudgingly) fine with paying Yeossal's shipping rates.
I received my order BEFORE my CC even authorized the payment. Insane turnaround. Super impressed.

@beargonefishing You're a 12 UK in EB and a 48 in SG65 last, even though 48 translate to 11 UK on Yeossal's website?

Just making sure if I ever purchase down the road...

Yes, that is accurate. Further up-thread you can see me compare a Y 50 to various UK12 shoes and their lasted shoe tree comparison. In my experience, the 50 is closer to US 14-15, UK 13-14. I can't explain it, but the larger sizes don't correspond well. If the Y 48 were a UK 11, my foot wouldn't fit. G&G 12 are almost uncomfortably small for me.

They recommend 50 and gave me full credit back because they were so large. Awesome customer service and I used the money to get the austerity above.

My 2 cents
The key issue here is Y sizing has 5mm full size interval while UK sizing has 4.23mm half size interval, i.e. 5 Y size increase=3 UK size increase
I believe the conversion in the table hold true in the smaller size region, hence the discrepancies for large sizes

Thanks for your feedback. How're the shoes working out for you?

I’m interested in one of the slim lapel safari jackets. Are there any brown fabrics that are suitable for a mild winter?

Question for US or Canadian residents who have recently purchased polos from Yeossal, or @yeossal or @jacksomeister: I'd like to buy a couple of Yeossal polos but want to minimize/avoid import duties as much as possible. I live in Canada (Ontario) but am right on the US (Michigan) border so I can easily ship to US rather than Canada. I assume a fair chunk of duty/tax (up to 40%) would be payable if I ship from Singapore to Canada but wonder whether shipping to US might attract less or even no duty charges, as I understand to be the case with Hober ties imported from Thailand? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've purchased 2 pairs of their Y line shoes and haven't been hit with any duties in Texas. Value was around $600 USD.

Thanks for the speedy reply @beargonefishing! That's certainly promising; thought I still hope someone might be able to weigh in on shirts, since I understand different products (heck, even different kinds of weaves) attract different rates of duty. Fingers crossed that most Yeossal imports into the US are duty-free under the Singapore Trade Agreement I've seen mentioned when Googling for answers...

Shipping to the US would be better. The duty free limit is $800 over there.
