What started out as a casual interest, has now grown into an obsession...can anyone help me locate a nice dark blue corduroy jacket? Has to be new, not used, good quality, has to be dark blue, not brown, beige or black. Price range $300 to $800. I've looked on the web but have been unsuccessful. If anyone has made that purchase, or can point me in the right direction, would be greatly appreciated.

I'm about to go off to college- in Massachusetts, when I've lived in Texas my entire life. Ideally, I'd like not to freeze all winter, so I'm looking for your clothing/lifestyle advice geared to someone without a clue. Additionally, the only members of my family who've lived anywhere cold are male, while I've fairly recently embraced my dressing-like-a-girl options. Any advice about how women in Our Frozen Territories stay warm without giving up on looking nice is especially appreciated. [more inside]

Please help me find a black floor length formal/evening skirt. [more inside]
I have a job interview on Wednesday for a very interesting non-profit organization involved with animal research (for good purposes). All of my suits are skirt/jacket combos. I'm very short...too short for pant suits, and no time for alterations. The skirt suits wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have a huge tattoo on my leg. In my former career in creative arts, tattoos were acceptable and even commonplace. I'm not sure if this is a big deal with the new field. Nylons look silly over the work, and tights make me look like a little girl. Plus, it's very hot out. Is showing the tattoo something I should worry about? Do you think it will be viewed negatively? Any suggestions to help make me look more professional? [more inside]

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?

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.
