    Did you give the suede a brushing? That might help with any nap/texture issues you’re having. I have Yanko suede shoes and loafers and no issues with the nap. The suede is nice and soft.

    So just received a pair of penny loafers in the 955 last, and I sized down half from my usual UK6 (I have a pair of austerity brogues) and the heel slip is still pretty bad.

    Here's a photo of the gap witb my foot pushed up to the front:

    Should I size down more? Or should I just attach a heel grip? Its about a half a finger's width at the back.

    Oh and I got them from @Skolyx and I'm really happy, they ship things out super quick!

    Do you have low insteps? Heel slippery is better solved by tongue pad than heel grips

    I know your feeling; loafers are very tought to get the right measurement; and even more when suede comes, I would personally recommend you to feel a little pressure on your feet, neither pain or loose on the heel when walking, note that suede always streches a lot

    I have some pair of Yankos and I was wondering if anyone know where they have their factory, I assume that they are a Spanish brand since 1890 but I do not spotted any statement whether the factory is in Spain, Europe or Overseas. Thanks in advance I was just curious

    That seems like a whole size difference; try half or maybe even a size down
