I want Ali Wong's glasses!

I watched Ali Wong's Netflix special last night. I LOVED her glasses and want to know who makes them and if anyone sells them. So do a lot of other people. [more inside]

Make my hair Seattle-proof

I have shortish wavy/curly hair that I straighten and add some texture to with a wand. It really doesn't do well with rain/mist/humidity, but I live in a part of the country where I don't have to deal with that as much. What should I do to make it more manageable when I move to Seattle? I'm looking mostly for comparison-shopping advice on the different smoothing chemical treatments but I'm open to other ideas.

o tote bag my tote bag

I would like to surprise a friend by replacing her favorite tote bag, a conference giveaway that is fraying & on its next-to-last legs. Can you help me find one? The actual bag style, not what it says (i.e. conference art) is the important part. The fact that it was a conference giveaway makes me think it's available SOMEwhere, if it was used in bulk like that. [more inside]

Looking for a good men's suit / tie / shirt combo for a summer wedding

I will be attending a wedding as a guest next weekend. My options for a suit are: dark grey, light grey, and a lighter navy. I'm interested in buying a new shirt and tie combo for the occasion, but I'm looking for some options. I'd like something that's bright and fun, but doesn't clash (which I often have a hard time discerning). [more inside]

SMALL high quality toiletry kit

I'm looking for a small, lightweight kit that can hold a toothbrush, shaver, shaving cream, toothpaste and not much else. I'm having trouble finding this in stores or online. I've googled 'pencil pouches' which is more of the form factor I'm going for, and I'm not wanting to use zip locks. Must be gender neutral/male focused (if that makes sense). Thoughts?

How do I use this tie clip?

I received a very short tie clip as a gift, but I'm not quite sure how to use it. It's of a similar size as this one on ebay. Usually I'd use a tie clip to fasten the top and bottom layers of the tie to my shirt placket, but since the clip is so short it doesn't even necessarily reach the bottom layer of some ties. So how should I use it?

What to wear as a groom who hates formal wear?

I'm getting married this summer :D and can't decide what to wear D: I really bristle at the idea of wearing traditional men's formal wear, especially a tux—it just feels wrong and inauthentic for who I am. I need help finding something that feels right and while we've had no trouble saying 'screw tradition we'll do it our way' for pretty much everything else wedding wise I'm struggling in figuring out what that is for me in this case.

Cleaning my treasured comb

A few years back, this wonderful community helped me find one of my favorite personal items, a beautiful vintage folding comb. I use it often. The only trouble is, I use it after I have applied a variety of hair products, including, but certainly not limited to, petroleum-based pomades like Murray's and water-based pomades like Layrite and Reuzel. The result is gross grey-ish buildup that I suspect is a combination of hair gunk, scalp gunk, and pocket lint. [more inside]

How do I go barefoot at work without detection?

It doesn't break the rules in my office. I'm male. Sneakers without bottoms would be ideal if they existed. Or socks that look like real shoes, maybe? [more inside]

More like a pocket, less like a fanny pack?

The world is frustrating my efforts to only own dresses/skirts with pockets. I am wondering if you can help me find some kind of bag that would work like an external pocket for me. Like a fanny pack. Except I'm not really confident I can or want to pull off the fanny pack look. [more inside]

Piercing in Los Angeles

I'm looking for a recommendation for a skilled piercing artist in a clean studio. I want to add a septum piercing to my growing collection of holes in my nose and I'm missing my hometown studio that had super knowledgable, skilled, and clean piercing artists. Could you help a person out and give me your favorite places to get pierced in LA?

ISO NYC seamstress for simpler project

I picked up some nice Liberty cotton lawn in London over Christmas. Now that summer's coming, I'd like to have it made up. I know that making a length of fabric into a basic rectangular scarf is a relatively simple project, but I knit rather than sew for VERY GOOD REASONS. Where to find someone who will do it for me?
