Discontinued hairspray! Need replacement.

My wife and I both used Pantene Flexible Hold #1 hairspray for many years. We liked it because it was unscented (at least as unscented as these products can be) and had very little 'glue' (in that it was level 1 hold out of 4 levels). Now that it has been discontinued, I'm hoping you guys can offer an alternative spray with those qualities. We don't want hair helmets or bees buzzing around our heads! Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

The wedding dress is plus-sized, but the bride is not

She wants this wedding dress, but it only comes in plus sizes. Is it worth it to buy a 14W and get it altered down to size 10? The dress costs $300, and alterations will cost minimum $200. [more inside]

Good stores for $50–$250 jewelry in silver or other metals?

It seems like there’re plenty of stores with $15 earrings and stores with $500 earrings, but I’m having a bit of trouble finding stores with jewelry in that middle ground of like $50–$250 (ish). Basically, I’m looking for stores with jewelry that I could potentially wear every day but which won’t fall apart after a year or two. [more inside]

Inexpensive. Heavyweight. Black. Jeans.

The last of my much-loved and discontinued Carhartt B161BLK jeans are showing their age. They're regular/relaxed fit, hard-wearing 14oz denim, black-black, fit over boots, and they cost about $40 when they were still being made. I should have bought a dozen pairs, but I didn't. Is there a decent and reasonably-priced replacement?

Help me find the best pair of glasses in the world...again.

Or something extremely similar. Pictures and details inside. I've had this amazing pair of glasses for roughly 18 years. They never lose their shape and seem to be nearly indestructible. And that's why I'm scared. I'm afraid I'm going to lose them and end up with a new pair that's inferior. I never see anything similar to them anywhere. Help me find similar glasses, so I'm not up a creek without my eyewear when that terrible day comes that I can't find them. [more inside]

Where can I buy this kind of silk fabric?

I am interested in purchasing patterned silk fabric, like the kind you see used in J Crew's kid's neck ties. Usually some kind of repeated pattern over a solid colored background. Kind of preppy looking. Does anyone know where you can get fabric like that? Is there some sort of secret underground network of suppliers in Italy or something? Thanks in advance!

Urgent suit + tailoring in Berkeley or SF (on the cheap)?

Asking for a friend: Vacationing in Berkeley and will fly straight from here to a job interview in another city. I don't have a suit with me, interview is a surprise (yay). Need to procure a freshly tailored new (man's) suit between right now and Friday afternoon. Also, budget is a thing. I know it can't be good, cheap and quick, so I'll sacrifice good. Where do I go? (Must be BART/AC Transit accessible.)

Stores for stylish mens dress shirts in NYC

I am looking to upgrade my work shirts but would also like to be a bit more fashionable. I am looking for a few smaller stores in NYC to check out. Brooklyn / off the beaten path is fine. I am pretty sure I know about all the department stores and chain stores already. I work in financial services and typically wear a suit or thin wool pants and a nice shirt.

How can I make my thin, fine hair wavy for a whole day?

I have long, thin, fine, hair and I fantasise about wavy tresses like these for my wedding next month (I am doing my hair myself). I have previously had zero luck with rollers or metal curling tongs + hairspray and/or mousse, they leave me with sticky, flat, straight hair after an hour or two. Help? [more inside]
