Men's Cotton & Silk Sweater/Shirt

I bought (at a thrift store) a heavy shirt/light sweater made by the GAP that is a cotton/silk blend. I like it because it is soft, light, warm, and seems to resist pilling and to generally wear well. Can you help me find another source for shirts like this? There are some on Amazon, but they are "fitted," which means that they cannot handle my voluptuousness. I'm male, and I'm looking for men's/unisex styling.

Who sells lined women's trousers in the UK?

I want a pair of lined wool trousers, for women, in black. I'm in the UK and I like brands like Toast, APC, Margaret Howell, All Saints, and Cabbages and Roses. Most of the wool trousers from these brands seem to be unlined from the item descriptions. So where can I find black lined wool trousers for women in the UK?

Hidden Wedding Dresses

I took the dive into wedding planning and tried on dresses. It was fun, but everything felt pretty formal (and really expensive). I have seen interesting and more budget friendly dresses at places like Modcloth and so now I wonder: what other companies or stores carry wedding dresses? [more inside]

I Don't Wanna Taco Bout It

Please, please help. I somehow lost my nephew's shirt. It is a long-sleeved green size 6 shirt from Gap with a taco on the front saying "I don't want to taco 'bout it." My sister and I have searched Gap, Amazon, Google images, and Overstock. Can anyone find this shirt, available for me to buy and have shipped to an address in California? Thank you!!!

Tall men of America! Where do you get your sweatpants?

I'm looking for sweatpants to fit a teenager with a waist of 32" or 34" and an inseam of more than 34". The pants have to have an elastic waistband and generally be comfortable (i.e. no jeans or khakis). Where can these be found? Specific items and links, please, not general advice like "Old Navy has a tall section."

How to Preschooler: Getting Dressed Edition

Our charming and funny three-year-old has chosen getting dressed as her battlefield for asserting her independence. This is...not good. While we have plenty of time to eat and play and enjoy our family in the mornings. But lately we have been spending that time battling over whether mini-rainbow will wear clothes to school. We adults always win, but not without feeling like we have already maxed out our interpersonal patience reserves. We both work in people-centric jobs so it would be helpful if we could leave the house in a better interpersonal space. [more inside]

Need advice on making my wardrobe a little less gender-normative.

Does the look I'm thinking of even exist?

I am a 30-something woman, and I would like to 1) wear pants 2) to work 3) in the winter 4) with a heel no higher than 1 1/2 inches 5) and not look frumpy. Where can I find the items I need to pull this off? First, the pants. I'm assuming that I want something more fitted/skinny than loose/bootcut. But nothing skintight, no leggings-as-pants or their ponte equivalent, and it's winter, so no "ankle" or "cropped" lengths. This eliminates pretty much all the dressy pants I've seen this season. Then, the shoes. I don't even have the most basic idea of what I'm looking for. Most low heels and wedges seem to be designed with the assumption that you've completely given up. Any ideas?

Help me find the right sweater (or jacket)

I'm looking for a black, long sleeve cardigan that I can wear over a black lace dress to a semi-formal ("black tie optional," although people's dress tends to run the gamut from party/cocktail to full gowns) work event. I'd like it to be cropped or hit at/above the natural waist so it doesn't ruin the lines of a fit and flare dress. [more inside]

Can you recommend a winter jacket for use in Wisconsin winter?

Give me a reason why I shouldn't snip this label...

Found a lovely wool scarf in a charity shop today, complete with a washing instructions label sewn onto one end. Now, I'm thinking that seeing this dangling around in front of me would be annoying, so I should (gently) snip the seam and pull it off, right? Or not? Added bonus questions: how best to do this without ruining the scarf? And do folks generally snip out the labels from other clothes as well? Is this a thing?

Dress me for a blizzard of snowflakes

My entire adult life I've had trouble dressing myself. If it were up to me we'd all be wearing Star Trek jumpsuits. I hate shopping, I mistrust fashion, and I'm really hard on clothing. Also: not made of money. But right now I need clothes and I don't have the time to scour 8 shopping malls for things I don't hate. Help me find an online retailer that suits my tastes and budget that I can be loyal to and buy all my clothes from. I'm preposterously finicky. [more inside]

How did Seinfeld dress?

I grew up watching Seinfeld, but didn't really have a personal conception of style while the show was airing. I watch reruns, and I think that the costuming is sort of... "dorky 90s department store". However, I'm curious, when Seinfeld was contemporary, how fashionable would those clothes have been? What was being conveyed with the clothing choices of the main characters?

England, a heatwave and public air con: socially acceptable dress code

It is England, and we are on day one of (another) three day heatwave. Temperatures are peaking at 35C (95F) and there is more to come. Being English, I'm (a) not used to it and (b) don't have domestic air conditioning. There is, however, really good air conditioning in some supermarkets (especially Marks and Spencer food hall) and the cinema. But what, especially in the supermarket, is the least you can wear in a socially acceptable manner (remember: England)? Are there any kind of relevant guides or guidelines?

Closet purged...now what?!

After my weekend spent purging my closet of BAGS full of clothes to donate that are too young, too cheap, too ill fitting, and just too plain ugly, I now find myself with a few holes and thin areas in my (blessedly) more manageable wardrobe. I'd like to fill those holes (slowly, eventually) with pieces that are classic, high quality, and (unicorn!) ethically produced (or at least MORE ethically produced than many major brands). Problem: I LOATHE shopping and am a style/fashion amateur. Where should be looking? What should I be looking for? Details inside. [more inside]

Help me get the most out of a strange fashion choice

So, I just got back from a gaming convention and I'm tempted to buy pauldrons (shoulder armor) or a single pauldron on Etsy to incorporate into outfits for social occasions, especially in geeky crowds. I've got little to no experience with wearing unusual clothing - most of my clothes are the male stalwarts of t-shirts, polos, jeans, and khakis. What goes well with a pauldron that reads as "slightly oddball casual" and not "got lost on the way to a LARP?"

I want to buy a matching bomber jacket or varsity jacket & cheerleader skirt from a dance/athletic supplier, rather than a fashion retailer.

Wheelchair users of MeFi, save my thighs from unintended consequences.

Stains on a jacket from fermented watermelon. Can I mask the damage?

This dingleberry left a watermelon in a bag in her car on a hot day. Even more stupidly, I covered it with my favorite jacket. The watermelon must've fermented/exploded, then whatever sludge was left gave my navy blue 98% cotton, 2% spandex trim jacket (with gold metal lobster clasps and some similar hardware) some funky bleached-out patterns that haven't come out after two washes. How can I mask the damage so that the jacket is a solid color again? [more inside]
