Help me hunt down these specific board (or paddling?) shorts!

This past week I was at the beach and saw a group of women pop out of nowhere carrying an outrigger canoe which they climbed into and paddled off. A few of them were wearing awesome pairs of knee-length shorts, black with a hibiscus pattern down the side. I couldn't tell if they were Spandex or Neoprene...but I want to buy some like them. Google is unproductive. Can you help me find them?

Where can I find a femme laptop bag?

I need a crossbody, leather, slim bag which can contain a 13-inch Macbook Air, a cellphone, a woman's wallet, and hopefully a paperback book or something of equivalent size -- and this object needs to be sleek, femme, and suitable to be worn with a fluttery gauze dress or the local equivalent. It'd be nice if it was red, but that's not required. Where is my bag? [more inside]

Seamstress/tailor in Atlanta area off Roswell Road?

I'm looking for a wonderful woman who altered my clothes about 10 years ago. I believe she was known for fitting plus sized women well. She made some major changes to some clothes as I lost weight, and did a fantastic job. I'm back in he area but can't seem to find the shop. Does anyone remember this shop? Is it still there or somewhere else?

I want a long-lasting stock of socks without paying a Fort Knox per box!

I've traditionally bought packs of the cheapest tube socks available. Walking a lot over the last several years has worn them out very quickly. So, I think I want better socks, but I do not want super high-quality artisanal tactical sox or what have you. I do not want to improve the quality of my life via sock purchasing. I just want to bump up to a level at which miles of use per dollar are maximized. If that means buying five $50 pairs of socks that will last 60 years, I'll do it. But I'm guessing the optimal point is somewhere cheaper.

Help me find heavy-weight t-shirts

I used to be happy with Lands End "super tees," but over the years, I guess to maintain their price point, they've gotten lighter and flimsier. What made me think there has to be a better product out there was watching Michael B. Jordan in Fruitvale Station this past weekend. (I wouldn't want such generous sizing, but that's just a matter of ordering something smaller, right?) I'm looking for plain t-shirts in a variety of colors, no graphics. Help?

No more Dad Jeans

OK, I've had it with being that guy in old baggy-ass faded jeans. What kind of jeans should an average-sized guy wear that's age appropriate (40) but not too "dad." Is the Gap still the place? Help!

Help me figure out how thick my eyeglass lenses will be.

I'm trying to decide between a bunch of lens options, materials and index. Of course, I'd like to get the thinnest lens I can without spending more than I have to and crossing the line of diminishing returns. Surely it's possible to know exactly how thick a lens of a given material/index with a given prescription will be. Help me find out how to determine this. [more inside]
