    Why exactly would you call the GY welt a poor construction method?

    To not cloud the thread with anything other than appreciation, look up gemming.

    I've read enough gemming / hand welted arguments to last a lifetime :confused:

    Search and learn. No decent bespoke maker uses GY welt for a very good reason; its inferior.

    My new Chambord II's... Was looking for a split toe derby. I was thinking about the EG Dover and the Alden NST too, but the Chambord in suede is just perfect!

    Has anyone had to deal with too much heal slippage with a Lopez loafer? If so, how did you resolve it? Did it get better after break in?

    Edit: I was doing further online research and someone on another forum said,"The British have no business making penny loafers" :facepalm:

    I found heel slippage disappeared after breaking in the shoes.
