We had a previous question on this, and I've seen this website - but I am looking for multi-source comparison. Thanks!

Growth of User Efficiency Over Time

We recently measured user efficiency with a few custom web-based search tools. So that we can level set performance against our existing tools, with which the users have significantly more experience, we'd like to understand how search efficiency may be expected to improve over time as users become accustomed to a particular tool. Are there any studies or stats related to that I may be able to reference?

Fake leather jacket in NYC

Where can I find a fake/faux/vegan leather men's jacket in NYC (preferably Manhattan)? Some of the ones on the Wilson Leather site look good — but I'd like to try it on in the store, and they don't seem to have a NYC store. Please recommend a specific store, not just a general area. Thanks in advance.
