^ Two questions. 1. Carding and combing leads to worsted, and without this step the result is tweed, yes? So if flannel is traditionally not worsted, does that mean the typical (or at least the traditional) flannel is a tweed? 2. I thought the production of flannel typically ended with a heavy brushing of the fabric to raise and align the nap for a furry/silky texture. Am I wrong?

I like a little contrast. Especially that wed outfit - He looks like the Tan man. I think suede with chinos can be fine, esp. with well-chosen socks. But yeah, too much tan in some of those. Friday is nicely balanced, though unexciting. Since...

^ Now, now. Don't dump on the poor woman just because she let her man talk her into this dumb stunt. Anyway, I think she probably looks fine; it's just a bad photo.
Maybe a pad under the tongue? That would tighten the arch fit and push the foot back against the heel, while relieving pressure on the toes.
Well it's a step up from Kohl's, anyway!

A tricky question. White is for summer, but somehow the construction of the shoe suggests (to me) cool or damp weather. Tan corduroys, maybe?
