You can pry my pinky teddy bear sneakers from my cold dead feet.

I adore the bold, crazy men's shoes and fashion of Jeremy Scott. Who else designs such deliriously delightful men's stuff at vaguely affordable prices?

Stockhausenify my Guy

I would like to buy a men's jacket like the one Stockhausen is wearing in this video. I'm not sure what the style is called. Any ideas on search terms and/or links to specific jackets for sale? The color is not particularly important -- it's all about the style.

My fiance needs an awesome suit for our wedding and beyond!

My fiance needs a suit for our wedding and beyond. Please help us sort through the myriad options. Special snowflake details: He wears a boys size 18 and won't really need to wear a suit after the special day but will be transitioning from a jeans and t-shirt job environment to a business casual one. Help us figure out if he should get an off the rack boys suit or an internet made to measure or if we should go somewhere in person for custom (we're in NYC). [more inside]

What men's clothing stores in the SF Bay area have salespeople who are helpful and willing to listen?

I need a fashion update. I'm in my mid forties. I know zero about fashion. Clothes bewilder me. Macy's and Nordstroms have nice clothes (I think?) but the salespeople are just kids and they don't give a rat's ass what you look like or whether they've actually helped you. In fact they're all laughing at me behind my back, obviously. Little bastards. Anyway, I need help from someone who knows what's what. [more inside]

Find me a great suit jacket, quick!

I'm tall (6'4"), I'm skinny (195lbs), and I need a black suit jacket before the end of the day today (I have the pants, but I'll buy new ones if need be). Obviously the time constraint eliminates any kind of custom garment. Basically, I need to know what stores I should be looking at in New York City -- I like a closer, more European fit, and I don't want to break the bank. First stop is H&M, but I'm not optimistic about what I'll find there. Other suggestions?
