Is it appropriate to wear AE shoes in their Walnut color with navy blue pants?
I think they look great with darker pants, but some people will say that your shoes should be darker than your pants--that it draws to much attention to your shoes. Matter of taste, but probably better done in a more casual setting than conservative business dress.
Where can I get wooden heels? Bnelson refuses to sell their stock and I refuse to mail shoes from DC to NYC for their heels.
Shoe heels aren't made from wood, they're made of a stack of pieces of leather that are trimmed and given a finish that sort of looks like wood. I'd be shocked if there weren't several dozen places in DC that can replace your heels. You may only need the toplift replaced, anyway, unless you've worn the heel down well beyond the layer of rubber.

I often wear summer weight wool for the office in Singapore, but it is so humid that I have to clean them often else I feel unclean. However, it would be time-consuming & inconvenient to take them to the cleaners every week, not to mention expensive!

This is a strange response. People wash woolen garments in water all the time, with no adverse effects (when they know what they are doing, of course). I'd be concerned about ever getting the trousers to a crisp crease, however.

Hey guys. So I'm in love with Zegna shirts, but the sleeves always run long. I can push them up, the fabric swells around my arms, looking way too blousy. Could a tailor correct this problem by slimming the sleeves (similar to how slim jeans can be worn long, with minimal/controlled stacking)? Or would I have to get them shortened? (If there is such a thing).
