How to flatten a shirt hem?

Clothing experts! I have a trivial problem. The hem of my button-up shirts -- the hem on the non-button side -- always folds over on itself. How do I make it flat again? It's happening to all my flannel button-ups, seriously jeopardising my aspirations to lumbersexuality. Pic below. [more inside]

Tell me what different dresses are called, please!

Much of my wardrobe consists of short (knee length or slightly above) dresses. In the past 2-3 years, however, I've been plagued by a weird cut that seems to be super-popular, but which is intensely unflattering for me: a very slightly full skirt, with a waist that is too high for the natural waistline, but too low for empire. Do you know what this cut is called, and what I should be searching for in order to avoid it? Examples below the fold. [more inside]

Wheres a good place online to buy inexpnsive light Italian-style suits?

We were in Rome a couple summers back and I was taken with how well dressed Italian men are even in the summer heat. It seems the secret is in all the shops there selling very lightweight jackets, pants, suits. Perfectly suited to spring and summer weather. I picked up a couple outfits while I was there and now Im back in California and I'm wanting to grab more. Does anyone know of an online retailer that specializes in this sort of thing?

What can I wear under a sheer blouse that won't make me miserably warm?

Apparently every store I like to shop at now makes all of their button-down shirts and blouses semi-sheer (Loft is the biggest offender). The trouble is that I'm REALLY hot natured and try to wear as few non-removable layers as possible (cotton tanks as a layer are too hot). I'm hoping someone can link to tanks made of really, really thin material or some kind of miracle solution that doesn't require another layer of clothes. Any suggestions of how I can layer without feeling layered?

flannel eye for the tiny, squishy guy

I would like some basic, dude-styled flannel button up shirts. I'm a short, small-framed queer person who stores weight in my chest. "Men's" flannels are generally too large; "women's" often have girly details like darts and little wee pockets and dainty buttons; "boy's" would be perfect but the sleeves are invariably too short. Do you have a body like mine and a basic flannel you love? Where did you buy it? [more inside]

Brutal washing machine destroying my clothes: please help

I moved into a new building a few months ago, and since then the washing machine (new GE top loader, stacked with dryer) has been busily destroying everything I own.

Help me wear my clothing (not R rated, no nudity involved)

I have this … thing. I have a lot of clothing in my closet, way too much jammed in there, but I'm reluctant to wear it. Instead I "save" it for some unknown possible event down the road and stick to a black-on-black type uniform which I can get away with, because I'm in NYC, but something tells me that ... there is something deeper going on here.

Stylish, dressy professional women's scarves -- and not too big?

Ms. Justice would like to buy a few stylish, professional-looking scarves to dress up and add a splash of color to her business suits and jackets. One difficulty is that many scarves are just too big, giving the impression when worn that one has a small tablecloth draped around one's neck. Can you recommend some upscale, not overly flashy, scarf vendors who sell product suitable for professional office wear that is relatively small and thin?

Bay Area clothing store for 80-year-old mom

My mother is visiting Berkeley and would like to shop for clothing. She is 80 and her taste runs to Koret and Coldwater Creek but both of those have become online only. Can you recommend a brick and mortar clothing store where she might enjoy shopping for herself? She would be interested in a chain store or an interesting boutique.

She couldn't care less; should I?

My daughter is almost two, still in diapers. I send her to daycare with a day's supply of diapers and at least one change of clothes. Every single day when I pick her up, she's inevitably wearing her top and diaper, and no bottoms. If I sent her in a dress and tights, she's wearing the dress but no tights.

XXXL Men's Clothing in Lansing/Detroit MI area

So the man in my life is a larger-sized fella. He usually shops at "Big and Tall" stores. I'm shopping for his birthday next month and it seems like there are not many stylish options available either on the web or in local shops. Any suggestions for affordable items (under $60) that look pseudo-hipstery-scifi nerdy for big men in or around Lansing? If there's a good shop in Detroit, I could drive there or similar distance too.
