What are these two men wearing?

What specific items of clothing are these two 19th century men wearing? Is there a name for that style of hat, those styles of trousers, etc? If you happen to know the exact name for those precise styles, that's great-- but if not, even general terms that would help me describe them would be great. [more inside]

Help me find extra tall, well-fitting shirts, jackets, and sweaters for a thin man, because I can't seem to find these anywhere myself.

I'm 6'9" and 210 lbs. "Tall" sizes of clothes are designed to fit guys up to 6'3". "Big and Tall" stores stock clothes for fat men, some of whom happen to also be tall.

Help me be a bit less fashion-ignorant

Hey guys. I'm 18, male, British, and have really no sense of style clothing-wise. What's the best way for me to very quickly builds some sort of fashion sense, so that (a) I can start wearing clothes that actually look good and (b) I feel less in the dark when people talk about such matters? Basically, what I need is some sort of crash course in style: the lessons I would have learnt if I hadn't spent my time programming.

Help me dress myself for work.

I have found various posts on this, but none quite get me where I need to be. I want to know what I should wear to work, business but not quite a suit. That is to say: what pants-jacket-shoes-shirt combinations would you suggest? I am interested not only in colors but also patterns and textures. The question is about men's clothing, but I am interested in advice from men and women. Note that I do not wear jeans. I am white, light brown hair, six feet tall 195 pounds. I have a beard.

Crayon in the Dryer, 3x Over

I washed some clothes with a crayon in a pocket. Now I've got yellow crayon spread out across my clothes. But it gets better. The clothes weren't getting dry and I kept putting them through the dryer. 3 times total, never noticing that the crayon stains were there. How can I get rid of, or at least minimize, the problem so I get some of my pants for work back? [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?

Can you recommend interesting men's shoe makers? I really (really!) like a lot of Cydwoq shoes, and some Fluevog's. I dislike shoes styled after athletic shoes or old track spikes. I'm most interested in learning about high style, relatively unusual shoes. They can be dress or casual. [more inside]

How?!: Perfume Smell OUT of Laundry.

Is it possible to get cologne smell out of clothing? I kind of "inherited" a half-dozen nice sweaters that reek of perfume, and I'm allergic as well. I've tried mucho baking soda and soaking in the wash machine; haven't tried vinegar yet; past (somewhat related) threads suggest Ozium and Synthrapol, but they're really not for this purpose.
