Anyone ever heard of AE Cornwall? Just scored a pair and curious-no info out on web

I found a pair of 'vintage' AE Cornwall loafers at a thrift that have been worn maybe 1 time-or were used on carpet only- that -to me- look decidedly modern but I can find absolutely no info on the web or AE's sites about any such model. There are a couple a pics on ebay of 2 listings that don't show the shoe very well. I took them immediately to my cobbler to have them polished and spruced up so I'll have to post pics later.

I was just wondering if anybody knows why there is so little info out there on a Cornwall model? I did a pretty thorough searchg and came up empty except for 2 eBay listings for the black loafers. The last looks pretty 'modern' to my eyes and elongated like the 5-65. The profile is similar to my fifth st. boots as well (except its a loafer)

So-are they really 'vintage' in that they are older then 5 or 10 years back? Anyone know anything-I'd appreciate the info as I am stumped about when these were sold. (if its any type of clue-the insoles have the "handcrafted world of..." insole which I thought was more modern. thnx

sorry--I am mixing up a pair of 'Cornell' with a pair of Cornwall that I've had for years and didn't realize were AE. Their pretty well worn so-even if I only know apprx when made-I'll have to have them re-crafted to experiance the 'true' AE experience of comfort as I would think my foot changed a bit after 25 or so years.
