How can I stop my leather bag staining my clothes?
I have a swell new leather shoulder bag. I wore it walking for an hour slung diagonally across my chest. It was a warm day leaving a very attractive diagonal line of sweat across my chest and shoulder from the strap. So far, so typical. However, with this new brown bag brown stains were left as well. Is there any way to treat or wash the strap to make sure it doesn't stain again? It is a fairly pricey bag, which I had assumed would mean it would not do this.

"Emergency" alterations in Copenhagen, Denmark
FashionEmergencyFilter: I am in Copenhagen for an academic conference at which I am presenting. I had tailoring done on two special athletic fit sports coats, which was repeatedly delayed by the tailor to the point I had to grab the jackets immediately before my flight. But here I discovered that the tailoring was incomplete or perhaps not even started, due to a mixup, incompetence, whatever. Is it at all possible to get something like a next day or two alteration job done, anywhere, much less in Copenhagen?

How old is this pair of Levi's?
I have a pair of Levi's jeans with a fun illustrated label on the inside saying, among other things, "The more you wash 'em, the better they look and fit!" The label looks 70s to me, but I'm not very knowledgeable about Levi's, so I was wondering how I can date these and where I can find some more info about them. [more inside]

Help me help him put a ring on it
He's asking me what style of ring I'd like; it's just a promise/"love you" ring right now, but of course it's relevant for the "big one", we both know. Except I don't know what I like. Special snowflake: periodic months-long long-distance situation. [more inside]

Where can I hire a formal dress in Sydney, with in-person fitting?
Surprise! I'm going to a black tie event on Saturday night. I have nothing to wear and therefore need to hire a dress. Everything I can find on Google so far is an online order. I would prefer a brick and mortar building where I can try on someone's inventory of dresses; I've done this before in other countries so I know it's A Thing. Where can I do this in Sydney?

Pretty hairstyles that stay out of your eyes but also stay put
I’m looking for ideas for pretty things to do with my hair so that it’s mostly down but stays put and doesn’t get in my eyes during physical activity. I usually use something like a Hipsy headband for this purpose, but I would love something a bit more interesting and/or sophisticated. [more inside]

Surely backpack technology has progressed alongside the laptop?
I'm looking for a men's backpack or messenger bag that exists at some magic intersection of lightweight and strong/durable. This is for daily commuting, often by foot, in New York City. My flashy new devices are impossibly light, and I'm looking for a bag that won't add unnecessary bulk when I carry some or all of them with me. [more inside]
