JewishFilter: how do Jewish people wear a kippah (aka yarmulke) without it falling off every ten seconds? We're just talking about this at work, Google fails us, and we can't figure it out, it seems like it would fall off whenever you moved.
I just saw the movie High Fidelity for the first time. There was one scene in the record store where Jack Black's character is wearing a t-shirt with Yanni's mug in it's full glory. As soon as I saw it I knew I HAD to have that shirt! I've managed to find some similar shirts on Ebay, but nothing quite as spectacular as the one in the movie. So I will be forever in debt to anyone who can find this shirt available for purchase. Help me MeFi, you're my only hope!

For years, I've bought my favorite work and casual shirts at Banana Republic. I like their styles, which are not too conservative, but not too out-there either. This year, they suddenly stopped carrying normal cut shirts. Instead, every single shirt in the store is 'slim fit', which doesn't fit me at all. What other clothing stores (in NY) should I visit to find nice shirts but a normal fit? I checked out Gap, but they have the same problem as BR, and only sell 'slim fit' shirts now. I'm not interested in 'fashion designer' clothes, so Bloomingdale's is out. What other stores should I check out that have a similar style as BR?

Clothing Search: I was at H&M a few weeks ago and they had this sweet long-sleeved gray button-down with epaulettes on the shoulders and double breast pockets; none in my size. Sort of punk rock/nondescript uniform-looking. Any ideas where I can find the same thing online? [more inside]

My dad loves t-shirts with fishing-related humor. I've already bought him one with "The trout, the whole trout and nothing but the trout, so help me Cod", and am planning to get this one, "Just for the Halibut." Are there any other funny shirts out there, related to fishing? Note: he's also conservative and old-fashioned, so anything crude won't work.

I recently bought a beautiful burgundy sweater coat. Unfortunately, I failed to notice the wash & care instructions, which state "Hand wash cold/separately." How exactly does one go about hand washing a large piece of clothing? The tag says "93% acrylic, 5% polyester, 2% wool." Is there any other way I can get this garment cleaned? Would Woolite be an option? Dry cleaning?
