I need light, thin, everyday wear gloves, before I chew myself to pieces
My dermatillomania has worsened, and I'm biting and picking at my fingers all day and in my sleep, causing a fair amount of damage and pain. I want to find some gloves I can wear at night and perhaps at work to help curb this until I can get it under control. Does anyone have any insight into everyday-wear gloves? [more inside]

Help me find these golden high-tops!
So this website sells these awesome Game of Thrones House Martell high-top sneakers. Unfortunately they don't have them in my size (US Men's 13). I cried for a bit, and now I'm asking: Where can I find high-tops in a similar golden-orange color? I really love it!

Anyone got a number for the Fairy Godmother?
I have to go to a family party in two weeks and I have a wardrobe full of rags. All my impossibly tall, willowy and well-dressed cousins will be there and for once I'd like to not feel like post-midnight Cinderella. Can you give me suggestions for styles that would suit me and also not cost one million pounds? Shops, blogs, personal anecdotes of outfits you have rocked...anything. Fashion-frustrating snowflakes within. [more inside]

Selling Clothing To Hotel/Resort Chain's ! Where Would I Go?
I am developing a line of clothing that, besides selling publicly, I would like to sell to hotel and resort chains. They would take of my brand's label and use their own. As there doesn't seem to be any industry event that are clothing oriented, what industry events would I attend or where would I find buyers to make this happen.

Men's Valet Gift Box
I'm chasing a men's valet box. I've found a lot that cater to just cufflinks or just watches but what I'm really after is a box set that could hold a tie, tie clip and row for cufflinks and maybe bonus points a watch as well.

Cheaper dupe of Stila Face the Day moisturizer
I'm looking for a moisturizer to replace the Stila Face the Day moisturizer I've been using. I love it, but at $38 for 50 mL, it's a stretch on my budget. [more inside]

I need to find the best barber in the Boulder, CO area
I've just moved to Boulder from NYC and I'm looking for an experienced, no-frills men's barber that can handle a classic tapered haircut. I have had great Russian barbers in NYC but this is CO, and I can't find much. Looking for a barber that can handle an all scissors cut and one that is relegated to guard clippers. I'm willing to travel to a nearby area but would prefer not having to make the trip to Denver.

Where in the UK can I buy good quality, plain women's T-shirts?
I want something that won't stretch out of shape within half a dozen washes, that isn't floral, pastel, see-through or low-cut. Surely this must be possible? [more inside]

A cheap source for five differently sized 60s-style black men's suits?
I need five black suits for a video/photo shoot and subsequent band performances. The suits need to have a kind of sixties cut (think Reservoir Dogs, or something Steve McQueen might wear) with a narrow pant leg. What's my best bet for finding them? Quality is irrelevant as long as they look OK, budget is 'as little as possible'. [more inside]

Stepping out of a salon - at home
I have dyed my hair at home for years, with box dyes (save one bleach + manic panic job when I was 17). Now my hair is quite short, I'm wondering whether I can pick up developer and colour at a beauty supply store so that I can use what I need, rather than wasting half a box kit. Any tips and tricks?

Where to find this shirt (or something similar)
A few years ago Target sold long sleeved Converse branded Henley shirts like this that I loved. I have lost a couple of these over the years and I am looking to replace them, but it looks like they've been discontinued. So, mefites, where can I find these shirts, or something similar to replace them? The Target shirts were pretty cheap, but I'm open to spending more for clothing that will last. Thanks.

Searching for a good Camberville-area tailor
I just got a barkcloth jumpsuit that's in need of some alterations. I'm looking for a tailor in the Cambridge/Somerville area that could help me out with this. The tailor my friends keep recommending to me is in Roslindale, and the tailors I've found via Yelp have worked exclusively in menswear. Who's a good tailor on this side of the river that works with womens wear and could help me out with my vintage find?
