Books on the history of clothes

Please recommend me a book on the history of clothing. I'm looking for more of a social history than I am something about changes in the clothes themselves, as I'm mostly interested in the relationship of clothing to society, class, etc., over time. Thanks.

How do you stay fashionably warm in winter?

I started dressing more fashionably in the last year; ditching my Kohls and Sears wardrobe for Banana Republic, J Crew, and Ann Taylor. Overall I'm pleased with my new wardrobe, but I have not figured out what to do for winter! I live in New England where it gets COLD and those thin little "sweaters" that BR and J Crew like so much don't cut it. Last winter I looked great but was frequently cold. Should I just go to LL Bean, or is there some winter fashion secret?

How can I control my online shopping addiction?

I am addicted to buying clothes online. Every time there's a sale for anything (15% off, free shipping etc.), I feel compelled to take advantage of it and buy whatever I want. I rationalize my behavior, thinking "oh, I'm saving myself money in the long run by buying these clothes now, rather than later when there's no sale." Or I'll say, "If I don't buy it now, they'll run out of stock, and then I won't have this beautiful item." What can I do, say to myself, or change in my behavior, to prevent my online shopping sprees? If you see an item you like online that's just a convenient click away from being yours, what is the checklist you go through, mentally, before deciding to purchase/not purchase it? How do you keep your clothing budget under control?

longsleeve shirts for thinner taller guys

I'm a mid-twenties, relatively-tall, relatively-fit (6' 1", 180 lbs...but I run a lot) guy who has a shirt problem. During the colder months I really like wearing long-sleeve cotton shirts as a sort of base layer under other things. My problem? I can't find any brand that fits...either the arms are too short, or the shirt maker seems to presume that I'm going to have a beer belly to go along with my longer than average arms. I.e., what I'm looking for is something like the small size of this, but with longer arms. I realize I could get larger shirts tailored down or go the bespoken route, but both of those options seem kind of overkill for what should really be a pretty standard product. Are there any brands that serve guys in my size by default? [more inside]

I want to look good. No, *really* good. (Or: personal shopper?)

A few years ago, I had a girlfriend who (gently) took me to task about my wardrobe and made a few suggestions as to how I could look better. I could see the difference after I'd tried a few new outfits, but I'm not very good at coming up with them myself, and I'm not very good at knowing what looks good and what has to change. It recently popped into my head that I could hire someone to help me out with this, but I know absolutely nothing about how to do so--although I hope MeFi harbors someone who does. Can you help me?
