Do you think so? I've spoken to a couple of people (admittedly not cobblers) and they've suggested that it may not be wise to stretch the shoes. Where i'm having the most problem is at the top of my foot where the laces are. I got the shoes on my...
Hi all, I recently purchased these from Holdfast. Unfortunately, they are just too narrow for my hooves. I have considered stretching them, but I don't want to harm the shoes. So, i've reluctantly decided to put them up here for sale (or possible swap for a wider size). They are UK Size 9 2E and have only been tried on by me on carpet and never worn in earnest, so the shoes can be taken to be as new. They do not come with an original box (that's how I purchased them)....
Hi, I too work in I.T. and i've been a contractor for a number of years. I know it's very difficult to decide on what to wear during interviews. I'm sure many people will have their own story. However, I'm of the attitude (as some suggest here) that if someone is going to judge you solely by your clothes what are the chances of a successful working relationship with them? Since i've started interviewing (many years ago) I've tried to look my best. When I was...

Never going to wear that.' You may be getting an authentic Corneliani label. You're not getting anything like an authentic Corneliani suit. Do include the link next time around. The folks here seem pretty scrupulous about not jumping on auctions first discussed...

Folks, final day. Off to the Bay tomorrow (Sunday). Inviting offers. Clint
Thanks letmebefell for the information. I didn't make myself entirely clear. I believe the Seller meant 100% polyester, as no other material was used. Anyway, I pulled the trigger. It was on a Buy it now for $12 (+ $14 delivery), so I figured it shouldn't be the end of the World me getting it. I shall be sure to comment further when i've got the jacket in my hands. Thanks again Clint
Hi all, I know very little about Corneliani, but i've seen a jacket on the 'Bay that is a very good price. However, the material quoted in the listing is Polyester. Does anyone know whether Corneliani would make a jacket in such a material? It certainly doesn't look polyester, but the picture isn't great. I've emailed the seller to confirm the material (no response yet). However, I can only conclude that either s/he's got the branding wrong, or s/he's listing some...
Hi, I feel kinda compelled to comment (although I rarely do). I feel that the issue is with your original post was you assumed that people on this forum perceived quality in the same way as you (a common mistake for a "fashion conscious" person when joining this site). One of your recent statements atested to the like-mindedness of specialised forums. The concept of a forum would fail if there weren't enough like-minded people on it. Now, i'm a new member. I've...
