Do I dare? I'd like to extend the time between haircuts, but I also don't want to look like I got my hair done at Le Weedwhacker Salon. Tips? Tools of the trade? Recommended videos? [more inside]

A Haircut in Gaytown

I usually cut my own hair because I have huge Issues about haircuts and hair places. But I need to get a more professional looking haircut. Can you recommend a queer-centric place in either New York City or New Jersey? [more inside]

needle on a coatrack

I saw this coat while out and about, and I liked it a lot, but I was too shy to ask the woman wearing it where she bought it. Can you help me figure it out, if that's even possible? In real life, it was a bit more mustard and less brown than the photo suggests. Thanks in advance, sleuths of fashion!

Where to find a magnetic-clasp watch band to fit a watch with 24mm wide spring bars/pins? Can find magnetic in smaller sizes, or non-magnetic in that size, but am failing to find both at once...

How is the quality of Threadless tshirts nowadays?

I last bought tshirts from Threadless in 2011. The material of the tshirts was very thin and a bit too easily stretchable, unlike the more sturdy tshirts I've bought from places like ThinkGeek. I've actually grown to like the thinner tees (they work well in hot weather), but given the unexpected quality of the tshirts in my previous order, I'm wondering what the tshirts from Threadless are like now. Thick or thin? Sturdy? Are the prints done well? Thanks hive mind!

Where to find a non-white wedding dress

So my fiance and I have been engaged for two years, and have started the process of wedding planning. One thing I am putting my foot down about is to not have a "traditional" wedding, including a white dress like every other bride. No off-white cop outs like ivory or cream, either. [more inside]

Scent-free, moisturising serums?

I'm looking for a facial serum that has no fragrance, absorbs well, moisturises well, won't clog my pores, and doesn't have chemical exfoliants or retinol. It's more difficult than I thought! [more inside]

Can I fake a tuxedo?

Going to a black-tie wedding on NYE. Already putting in a significant amount of money and time for this, and would love to avoid dropping another couple hundred dollars on a tux rental. I have a 3-piece suit (might be this one)and a tuxedo shirt. If I get a black bow tie, am I pretty much at a tuxedo, or am I gonna look like an idiot? FWIW, I'm doing all the music, so I'll be a little more visible than the average wedding guest.

How do I ring?

So, I am recently engaged to a fabulous guy, yay! And I am wearing an engagement ring (which I like very much and which we picked out together) pretty much every day now. It is simultaneously really difficult to get off over my knuckle, and often spins so that the stones are on the inside, which is not the end of the world (it's a channel setting so the stones don't snag or anything) but is not ideal. What do I need to ask/tell the jeweler to get the ring to fit correctly? [more inside]

Help me replace my husband's (old) favorite shirts

My husband's favorite winter shirts are aging, and I'd love to find him something similar, as a replacement. It's the shape of a long sleeve Tshirt, but double layered with polarfleece and reversible. The inner layer is t-shirt weight knit, laminated to the outer layer of microfleece (or maybe I have the nominal inner/outer swapped). I didn't think my google-fu was weak, but I can't find it - maybe nobody makes anything like it now? [more inside]
