Working with an Independent (Clothing) Sales Rep vs. Cold Calling shops

My wife has designed and produced several items of clothing for girls which are available online. She's interested in getting her items placed and sold through specialty shops and boutiques. She is trying to determine the best way to go about this without breaking the bank. (For example, the expense of a booth at a trade show is outside of our budget). She's thinking about working with an independent sales representative and/or cold calling shops directly. [more inside]

How to remove restaurant smells from clothing?

How do I remove awful, greasy restaurant smells from my clothing? I work eight hours a day at a small, enclosed cafe. I come home smelling of this particular mixture of grease and cafe food (not in a delicious way). It comes off of me in the shower--but after eight months of this the smell seems to be inexorably attached to my clothing. How do I get rid of it? [more inside]

Seeking nice blue corduroy jacket

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.

Help me outfit myself for my expedition to the Yukon. Well, not quite... but pretty close.

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]

Will not covering up this tattoo negatively impact me at my upcoming job interview?

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]

YanniFilter (yes, THAT Yanni): Help me find this shirt...

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!

'Slim-fit' doesn't fit. Where else should I shop for shirts?

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?
