1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Not only is that not the Randolph, but they're also listed at $10 above retail.

    Was wondering when someone was going to bring this up - they're online only this time.

    I've posted about this a few times, the most recent is here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/141581/...eviews-pictures-sizing-etc/70365#post_8305007

    BL: for me, the Cornwallis is shorter, lower-volume, and tighter at the widest part of the shoe than the 65. I love it but can't get it to work. At all. YMMV: if the 65 is a good fit for you the Cornwallis might work (though maybe a bit tight).

    For your intended use, it would be fine. Some may say it's slightly on the formal side (it would be a great suit shoe), but I wouldn't hesitate to wear it as described.

    EDIT: included OP quote. Stupid fingers!

    I have purchased twice from this seller. I have been pleased with them and they have great CS.

    I tried a couple on a few days ago and settled on going up a 1/2 size, at my regular width. You definitely want to try a few in this show, as it does fit differently than the 65.

    My standard answer is that if you own that you are waring the shoe you want to wear, who cares what is appropriate. Be confident.

    FYI Massdrop has a pretty good deal on Woodlore shoe trees right now. Might want to check it out.

    I gotta say, the last that the Cornwallis is on, the 1943, is so much nicer looking than the 5 last, at least for a more formalish look. Putting my suit on tonight and trying on the Cornwallis and my Fairfax. No contest, the Cornwallis looks much better from a shape/silhouette standpoint. (Ignore the different lacing). These are both 9EEE, and even at this width the 1943 last manages to still look sleek to me (vs the blob that is the 65 last).

    Everyone should own a Cornwallis is either brown or walnut.

    I've yet to see it in person, it does look nice in pics. I also can't find any info on the last online.

    I got some Renomat today and decided to refinish my walnut Sanfords. I have only added polish to these for the past two years, this is their first deep clean.

    Before:

    After Renomat application:

    After Renovator and some brushing:

    I really like how the walnut is aging, and I've had my eye on a pair of walnut Cornwallis...
