Where can I find fitted, work-friendly jackets/blazers that are 100% not bulky or stiff? Difficulty: must come in petite sizes and not-just-black colors. [more inside]
I am obsessed with Sirius Black's housecoat. I love the peak lapels, warm dark color, and widely spaced stripes. I'm also a university professor where I could wear something like this on a regular basis. I've scoured thrift stores for years, with little luck. Where can I find this garment or similar?

I like the look of this leather blazer. I'm specifically looking for a jacket I can wear indoors as a pseudo-suit jacket in my business casual workplace. Can you suggest a leather blazer, similar to this one, or at least NOT moto or mixed media style? I am in the U.S. Size-wise, I'm right on the edge between 1x and XXL, or between a straight 16 and an 18W. [more inside]

I find myself in the realm of needing to wear a winter coat on a regular basis in the nearish future. A winter coat with other layers underneath. As a person who really hates cold, and owns a few blazers, I am hoping to wear them sometimes with a winter coat. But how? Is it as simple as wearing a blazer to the store and finding a coat the fits over the blazer? And oh god, how do you do that? [more inside]

I was recently given this rather nice quality leather blazer, but I feel like a mafioso if I wear it out. Thoughts on what to pair it with? On the legs, especially? The model's very minimal t-shirt seems like an ok idea, I dunno though. I'm pretty tall, fairly skinny.
A new blazer I purchased has 4 buttons on each sleeve, and 2 functional buttonholes, 2--towards the end--which are unopened--why? [more inside]

I'm on a business trip which I didn't expect to include any formal meetings, so I foolishly didn't bring any dressy clothes. I've suddenly ended up with a meeting at which I really should wear at least a blazer or sport coat. [more inside]
I left my standard blue blazer on another continent and will be speaking in front of a group of 400 people tomorrow in Manhattan. I'll be there by 1pm and don't know where to get something that fits. I'm thinking of a) finding something else a bit more stylish, b) would buy a suit if necessary but doubt it could be ready in time, but I'm open to that if there is a great recommendation.
I had my heart set on this blazer, but it turned out to look different when I saw it in person. Any recommendations for places to get a similar-style blazer in the same price range? I'm a man in London.

How do I wear this blazer and not look like an idiot? I have absolutely no idea how I am going to wear this. I'd like to dress it up, with maybe a white shirt and tie, but what colors? And what color pants? I am totally confused as to why my mom would buy this for me as a gift.

I own two short-sleeve jackets that I love. How often can I wear them to work without people wondering why I keep wearing the same thing over and over again? Do my coworkers even notice my clothing or care what I look like? Even better, where can I buy cheaper (but not obviously cheap) jackets? [more inside]

Sexy Suits: This weekend I saw a woman wearing a blazer with a double-hem at the bottom, kind of like this one. It wasn't that one though - it was sharper, nicer fabric, not as round, with stronger diagonal line from the hip downwards. I so need one of these jackets! [more inside]

My '97 Chevy Blazer smells like burning rubber when I drive it... and the emergency brake is NOT on. None of the indicators on the dashboard are showing anything either. I'm not very good with cars. What could be causing this smell?
