    I think that helped. Your thoughts?

    Also planning to wear my Cornwallis in dark chili to dinner so that's on my left. Do most people straight laced that style as well?

    Looks pretty wide. My Carlyle's were somewhat similar. I'll show you mine before and after they broke in to see how much they closed.

    You could try a vamp stretcher if you want to close the V a bit.

    That looks like a WIDE V to me.

    That looks much better. And I would straight lace the Cornwallis. And most oxfords.

    Definitely better. I think with break-in they will be spiffy. But, the big question is: How do they feel?

    And I would straight lace the Cornwallis. The only balmoral shoes I don't typically straight lace are my Rough Collection i.e. McTavishes, Ridgeway and Elgin. Oh, and my Neumok. I forget that one all the time. Maybe a double leather sole would help me remember.

    They feel just fine, straight laced the Cornwallis before dinner. Thank you very much for the assistance.

    I'm not at vegan yet, but less steak means more shoes. [​IMG]

    And if you eat horse steak, there's more shell available!

    If the model number on the box matches the shoes, I do believe they are shell. Where are @mdubs , @polojock615 , et. al.?
