Via Spiga pumps worth the $$?

I'd like to buy this Jessica pump by Via Spiga. However, I'm balking at the $198 price tag because that's more than I've ever spent on footwear. Is it a good value to buy expensive shoes? [more inside]

I'd like to find a place to buy men's tailored shirts online, hopefully at prices between $20 - $50. I'd also like to know, once I get a nice shirt, what is the best way to keep it from getting a yellow ring on the collar? [more inside]

Looking for women's plus-size cold weather exercise pants

I am looking for women's plus-sized (size 2X) cold-weather pants for walking my dog in the morning. I walk/run her for about 45 minutes (we are slowly doing Couch to 5K together). Specifically, I'd like to have something like these thermal running tights that are light, easy to pull on in the morning straight out of bed and will wick away moisture. Regular exercise and/or running tights aren't warm enough. Typical temps I walk in are down to 20F -- I'd like to be warm, but just not cold would be sufficient. I need them in a women's size 2X, but have had no luck finding anything. [more inside]

I'm sweating this one out

I have mutant sweat that seemingly alters the color of every shirt I own: whites turn sweat-stain-beige and most colors get bleached. Can I do anything to prevent or treat it, or am I stuck wearing the three colors that aren't affected? [more inside]

Can I reshrink this sweater?

I had a have a sweater that was very fitted in the sleeves. Without thinking, I spent the day with the sleeves rolled up (I had a dress shirt underneath it). Now the sleeves are all stretched out. Is the sweater permanently this way, or will running it through the dryer shrink it? It is 60% cotton / 30% viscose / 10% wool.

Shoe Trees for These?

I know what shoe trees are supposed to do, but what shoes should I be putting them in. All my shoes? Just the ones made out of leather? Any shoes I invest >$50 in?

Deyellow me some whites!

I have some white T-shirts (standard Fruit of the Loom/Hanes/shrink-wrapped supermarket cotton T's) that have gone yellow around the folds after being stored folded in a closet for too long. I'd like to bring them back to their original shade. Some I've actually never worn! The tools I have are a bucket, gloves, collar cleaner, and bleach. I'd like to rinse the bleach out before I put them in the machine. I've never done anything like pre-soaking or treating stains before. [more inside]

Will crayon stained clothes ruin my other clothes?

Laundry of doom?

I fried my clothes in a dryer at the laundromat that was way, way too hot. Besides everything being shrunken, some of the paint stuff from screenprinted T-shirts seems to have melted a little and everything stinks, almost like melted plastic. Is this dangerous? Am I inhaling toxic fumes from my sheets and might I be dead by morning?

Where would you buy a waistcoat in Chicago

Where would you buy a waistcoat (you know, like the vest part of a three piece suit) in Chicago? I know that All Saints has two in the fall line, but they (like the department stores) are both basic black. Guy is looking for something a little more exciting, maybe with matching pants. I don't want the responsibility of sewing it myself (and pants are definitely beyond me, anyway). Custom is probably okay; online is okay; custom on-line is not preferred. He will not have the patience for going through vintage or consignment shops.
