Model: Microcord Breeches
Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: I bought two pairs of these on Ebay for $24 and $16 - one full seat pull ons and one knee patch. I like stretchy close fitting breeches.
Likes: I prefer the full seats, as the microcord fabric is stretchy and very clingy as it is thin. This gives a weird look to ones butt in the knee patch versions.
Dislikes: Sizing is very inconsistent in Romfhs - I am a 28 waist which is a 2 in their sizing, or M. However, their Schooler tights fit me great, the microcord full seats are great, the microcord knee patch as kind of large, and I have also tried the Caroline model, which runs large too.
Quality: The microcord fabric is quite thin. So, where it attaches to the full seat clarino-type fabric, it pulls and I have already had to fix some holes. The knee patch breeches fasten at the waist with studs and one was defective in the pair I received. The stud itself was broken, and the fabric is really too delicate to hold a stud fastening. I would say the construction quality is fairly poor in the microcord ones, although the schoolers are fine.
Summary: Nice design concepts, but inconsistent sizing and poor fabric choice in some models. I wouldn't buy any more of these sight unseen.
Usefulness Rating: 2.2 out of 5.
