Guayaberas. Boston. Online?

I'm headed to Australia in 2 months. I have a fat neck. I have measurements. Where can I convert those measurements into linen guayaberas that seems to be perfect for an Australian summer? Local would be better but anyone who has an online tailor they like I'm more than open to options.

Woolly Hubby

My husband has become quite obsessed with merino wool clothing over the past year or so. With the holidays coming up, I'd like to get him a nice wool-related gift (doesn't have to be clothing), but he's already bought a lot of stuff for himself. [more inside]

How can I change this very short butch haircut?

I am a woman with short hair who just had a miscommunication with a hairdresser and now have an unflattering “fashy” type haircut — shaved on sides, three inches on top. I would like to change it before going to visit elderly relatives next week. Additional complication: I need to get a scalp biopsy this week too. Am I hosed? [more inside]

Cosmetic chemists - brands of shampoo/conditioner with best formulation?

I think I remember reading somewhere that cosmetic chemists consider Pantene to have an excellent formulation. Is this true? Are there any other brands that are highly approved by the experts? [more inside]

I seek punk rock compression socks!

This question is for all the punks out there with disabilities that want compression socks. I want awesome punk rock compression socks. Specifically, I really want black and white horizontal stripes, other two-color regular stripes in bold colors, solid black, leopard print, plaid... you know, socks that punks like. Do these exist? Where can I get them? Sock Dreams is as close as I've found and they're still a bit on the tame side.

Is Drunk Elephant a uniquely good skincare line, or...?

Last week, the sample set of Drunk Elephant products arrived at my house and I have subsequently enjoyed the best skin week in recent memory. But I'm not rich, and the full-size versions of all six products would total $364. So are there good, similar-to-identical routines out there, or can I justify funneling my cosmetics budget into DE products? [more inside]

Who makes a high quality shoulder/mid-back length purple ponytail wig?

Who makes the nicer quality purple ponytail wigs? (I know the purple and ponytail +up the difficulty) I don't mind paying a little more for a nicer wig that I can reuse and will look better. Bonus points if you have non-painful recommendations for how to make it stay put on my head with a high pony. [more inside]

Making shoes work for tiny, wide feet

I wear a women's size 4 and I think I have wide feet. Shoes seem to fit length-wise but still feel small/tight, and my . . . foot knuckles? . . . seem to be pushing the shoes out. Problem is, size 4's barely exist, and size 4 wides basically don't exist at all. I also seem to have plantar fasciitis going on, or something similar. I have some ideas for workarounds and would love your feedback on whether you think they might work. Would also love to hear if you have other tips. [more inside]

Best plus-size raincoat/ rain jacket

I'm looking for the best plus-size women's raincoat or rain jacket that fits my criteria (must be actually attractive and work for PNW downpours.) Wishes: Cute, good color, fits size 22/3XL, prefer a structured/adjustable hood and cuff adjustment. I would like a real coat for the outdoors, not a fashion-y coat. I tried a size 2XL from North Face and it was much too tight, though I could zip it, so NF is out. I'm open to a men's jacket if anyone has one that they think fits well despite being cut differently. I would not like to look like a box. Thank you for any ideas!
