Casual (but stylish) clothing blogs for aging hipsters?
I'm looking for some blogs that feature cool clothes that you can actually buy. Like HYA
but for stuff beyond Ts and hoodies. [more inside]

How would a 23 year-old male become more fashionable? The only time I feel dressed well is when I wear a suit. How can I fix this? It's difficult for me to find clothes that I feel fit me well because of my 6'3" 185 lb frame. [more inside]

I've had a lot of clothes over the years that I've hung on to, for no reason other than that I can't bear to throw them away. What do you do with your favorite clothes once they are too worn out to continue to function as clothing?

FashionFilter: I wish to shop online for women's clothing of decent quality, classic fit, available in a large range of colours, and reasonably priced... let's say a la Gap or Banana Republic. Can anyone suggest online shops of this type in Australia, where I can avoid getting stung by the exchange rate? Or perhaps a cheaper global alternative to the labels mentioned? [more inside]

I am a 49 y/o woman traveling for Xmas to Akumal (near Cancun) with my family and my extended family.
We are staying in condos right on the beach and I want to pack comfortable clothes/shoes but still look good.
What besides swimsuits and cover-ups and hat should I take?
What shoes? I have Keen water sandals but they do fill up with sand on the beach and are probably mainly for river shoes when you need to walk on rocks. I also have black teva flip flops. Not the most flattering at all!
We will be snorkeling, reading on the beach, walking, sightseeing going to restaurants, playing with young nieces and nephews.

There was a website that launched a couple of years ago (not sure if it still exists) where this guy put the entire contents of his closet online (pictures) and had people tell him what to wear every day (or at least sometimes). Anyone else remember the site? Trying to google for it is much harder than you'd think. [more inside]

Whilst in Malaysia a few years ago, I picked up some very high-quality, very cheap Ralph Lauren 'Oxford' dress shirts. I realise they were probably fake, but I don't care - they were comfortable, and cheap enough to not care about destroying them.
My mum's in Hong Kong at the moment, and I've asked her to get me some more. Does anyone know where she'll find them and, so she doesn't get ripped off, how much she should expect to pay?

CostumeFilter: I'm making my own henchman costume this Halloween, and I'll be driving past downtown LA tomorrow morning. Are there any specific stores I should check out if I'm looking for cheap generic clothes? I'm looking for solid color plain long-sleeve shirts, sweatpants, things of that nature. Bonus points if I can find gloves and cheap generic boots. [more inside]

My 3-year-old is getting into dressing her Little Mommy
doll. I've been using her old newborn clothes, but the dolls are too small. (And the stuffed animals are the wrong shape.) Can you recommend a doll that can wear the newborn clothes?

Where to find genuinely black dress clothing that matches - shirt, tie, belt, slacks, shoes -- a seamless whole from three feet away? Obviously, this isn't an outfit one would have many opportunities to wear, but once or twice a year it would be entertaining to be able to dress stylishly but somberly in black. Black, not dark gray, but black. Like what you see when there is no light at all, black like blindness. Black slacks -- flat front because pleats are fussy (but reversed box are almost acceptable) -- with a shirt of black identical to the black of the slacks -- amazingly difficult to find -- black tie, black belt -- matte -- black shoes -- suede or matte leather. It's worth money to me if, by halloween, I can (at least in dim light) look like a floating head and two hands and depress undertakers. [more inside]

Dress me and Mr. F for a Hindu wedding in November in NorCal. Difficulty factor: we are slightly large white folks who never wear anything except cargo pants and T-shirts, and my native guide doesn't know what non-Indians wear to such things. [more inside]
