Yeossal Launches GMTO

Singaporean menswear atelier, Yeossal, has recently introduced their new ‘Collection Group Order,’ which is essentially a GMTO of sorts on their Handwelted Boot Range. This might not seem like news to you, but what is different to other GMTO’s is that you do not have to order the boot exactly as shown. This is just the example of the model that is available, but once you get into the product’s page you can start to […]

My Friday Combo – 80 Degrees in NYC!

Today is the hottest day of the year (for NYC), getting up to 84 degrees Farenheit so I finally broke out a short sleeve shirt, a linen jacket, some bold socks and a pair loafers to celebrate!

Unique TLB Mallorca Shoes exclusive to Yeossal

Singaporean Atelier of menswear (shoes, clothes, accessories), Yeossal, has an interesting selection of TLB Mallorca shoes that no one else has, not even TLB themselves. I find many of them quite intriguing to say the least, especially the saddle brogue derby which is my favorite among them. Yeossal has done a great job of carefully selecting unique pieces for their collections. A smart move by them, not only for their own local audiences but also […]

I, personally, have been very impressed […]

Polo Shirt by Yeossal – The Review

Today, for the first time, I do something different on The Shoe Snob Blog and review a shirt, specifically the new Polo Shirt by Yeossal. I was actually quite surprised when they asked me to review this, as they are not shoes, but am super glad that they did as it has become my absolute favorite shirt in my wardrobe (and truth be told, I have like 50 shirts, so that is saying a lot!). […]

The problem with this ideology is pattern making has come a long way since the days of solely very traditional and classic shoes were being made. That means that the cap line is not always the defining indicator of where the toe puff ends. And what that means […]
