    ^jeans and chinos is exactly what you'd wear those with. those are not something you'd wear with suit and tie (or even dress shirt and trousers) at all.

    Is having both Ravello andy Whiskey longwing redundant? What do you guys think? Should I keep both?

    I'd keep them! I plan on keeping my dark ravello LWBs, my cigar LWBs should be here in a few weeks, and I fully plan to find a pair of lighter/redder ravello and whiskey.

    Not redundant at all. But I am in the process of getting all the shell LWB colors (#8 left to buy and Whiskey on pre-order). :)

    I need to take a photo of the bottom of my foot and compare it to these lasts. Both the trubalance and the modified lasts look they weren't designed for human beings. Look at that curve at the ball of the foot. I mean, seriously. What human foot looks like that?

    Every time I see the modified last that is the first thing I think of. Though I consistently hear that it is easily the most comfortable last to wear.

    I've read the same exact thing; lots of strong (to say the least) opinions either way about the Modified in particular. So, curiosity got the better of me and I took the plunge on these Natty SWB makeups from Moulded (sorry for the shitty iPhone 4 pics and no, I don't roll my jeans like that..they're work/yard jeans rolled up to show the whole shoe.)

    I was skeptical right up until I stood up after lacing them. "No way these will fit correctly," I told myself, "Look at that bizarre sole profile."

    And then...

    Holy hell they are comfortable - much more so than Barrie (which fits fine, but not like these). I don't find them too wide or constricting in the midfoot and I am pretty much a textbook 9 medium on the Brannock with average arches (these are accordingly size 8.5D). Yeah, the toebox is a bit bulbous, but there is something oddly sleek about them. I can't really define how.

    Like stevent said, try them on. You might be surprised. I certainly was.
