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
Nice collection there C!
Search and learn. No decent bespoke maker uses GY welt for a very good reason; its inferior.
John Lobb City II.
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!
My Edward loafers in brown museum.
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"
I found heel slippage disappeared after breaking in the shoes.
