I recently bought a pair of jeans at Macy's. They stink like mothballs/formaldehyde/naphthalene. Washing them doesn't get the smell out. What IS the smell, is there a sure way to get rid of it - aside from returning them to the store as a defective product, which I'm willing to do - and why do so many jeans being sold in stores now smell like this?

I'm looking for a stylish hat with good coverage. I'm not normally a hat-wearer, but I've been spending a lot of time outside and want to keep my face out of the sun. I'm looking for more coverage than one of these straw fedoras but not a big, floppy beach hat. [more inside]
Can you recommend a tailor/seamstress/dressmaker in New York who can make an exact copy of a beloved, though not at all high-fashion, dress that has seen better days? [more inside]
I'm headed to NYC for the weekend and would like to spend part of a day relaxing at a spa, with massage, sauna, baths, the works (think Aire Ancient Baths or Russian Baths, for two I've considered). Where, based on your experience (preferably personal) will I be least likely to stick out as a woman who's a size 22? [more inside]
Can somebody help me find a tinted moisturizer for my face. I don't want anything super heavy so it should absorb almost immediately. I can purchase in person or via the net. My skin is slightly dry, but no other problems. Hopefully it won't cost more than $50.
My boyfriend wears --- um -- Walter White underwear. It's his birthday, and I would like to give him some spiffy boxers. Is this a wrongheaded idea? [more inside]
Long shot: Can I somehow get these wedge sneakers?? [more inside]
I'm going to be a bridesmaid and I get to buy my own dress! Great. However, I have a specific brief: boat neck, low (ideally quite low) back, short sleeve or sleeveless. Length is up to me but she'd prefer it be shorter rather than longer. Nothing white or white-adjacent. I'm struggling to find a petite dress that fits the brief and still looks classy. Help?

A few years ago, I saw someone walking around in a shirt with the Harvard seal on it, except that the "VE RI TAS" part had been replaced with "BUR RI TOS." I would very much like to purchase this shirt or one like it, but can't find it online. Any leads?
Looking for recommendations for places to buy corsets, both in NYC and online. I am familiar with Orchard Corset. Thanks for any other ideas!

I'm thinking of getting these dresses for my 4 bridesmaids: DESSY 2894. Which of the colors on the site would go well if I'm holding a bouquet that's a blend of these? (More details inside) [more inside]
I'm wondering about the origins of a handmade quilted & embroidered vest. The front is beautifully embroidered with birds and flowers, while the back has several circular sections with layered/3D quilting. [more inside]
How can I find other men's pants that are cut just like this one perfect pair of pants I have (CPO Provisions "skinny chino" from Urban Outfitters)? [more inside]
I have chronic pain, and one way it manifests is rib pain and upper back pain. It occurs regardless of bra wearing status, but bras make it worse. But I can't go without a bra, which is uncomfortable and causes different pain. I think a bra with a really wide band would help, but can't find anything in my size. [more inside]
I recently borrowed a friend's shirt. It was a lace-back tank top from Express, and I loved the way it looked on me. I'd love to buy a similar shirt for myself, but I haven't been able to find one online at Express or a few other similar stores. [more inside]
Can I use any old free-motion presser foot with my sewing machine, or do I need to stick with the same manufacturer? If the former, can you help me figure out which kind I'm looking for? If the latter, can you tell me where to find one that's not part of a kit? [more inside]
I need fashion role models that are stocky and/or balding men. Bonus points if they are also weirdos and/or freaks. [more inside]
I am reviewing my skincare regimen. I am intrigued by Beauty/Blemish Balm or Color Correcting Creams. [more inside]
Hey hivemind. I saw this video, which starts with a Japanese woman wearing a rather particular type of robe, while at a kotatsu. It's somewhat reminiscent of a kimono, but big, comfy, padded cotton? Sort of like a wearable comforter. Anyone know what these are called / where I might find them? ... or, if necessary, a pattern for them?
