My chest is a tank! Tanks need suit jackets too!

FashionPhillyFilter: I have had a borderline-apocalyptic time trying to find a suit/sports jacket that fits in Philadelphia. I am a tall-but-not-notably so (6'0") dude who is built like a [big football guy term here], but with a smaller waist & bottom half to mis-match my enormous breastplate/shoulders. (My friend says "you are an inverse triangle"). Attendants at the stores I have gone to have been completely flummoxed by my proportions, which end up with either the jacket not fitting over my chest or there being a puffy cloud of fabric on the bottom. It's at the point where I'm getting recommendations for $1895 (low estimate I was given???)+ tailor-made jackets as the only solution for my build, which I am trying to avoid based on my budget (doctoral student on stipend). Surely there are... some stores that have tailorable off-the-rack things that might fit? Any suggestions as to stores that have fashionable, comfortable clothing for larger-built gentleman, especially in distance of Philadelphia? [more inside]

Where can I find a quality women's corduroy blazer in San Fran?

I've got an unexpected day free in San Francisco tomorrow and I'd like to do some shopping. One thing I haven't been able to find back home in Sydney is a nice corduroy women's blazer. I had one years ago in a lovely dusty pink and I wore it til it fell apart. Anybody know if they're "in" this spring and where I can find one in the city? (Colour doesn't really matter.)

Need the perfect rain coat, because soggy wool isn't cutting it anymore.

Where can I get a jacket like Kim's blue one from Freaks and Geeks?

Where can I get a jacket like Kim's blue one from Freaks and Geeks? Hopefully you've seen the show. If not, I'm not quite sure how to link to the google image results from my phone but it should come up quickly. It's worn by the character Kim played by Busy Phillips. I believe on the show she stole the jacket to get it. You know the one - blue with some stripes.

"Tube collar"?

My leather jacket has bitten the dust. I'd like to find a replacement, but I'm really fond of the large, tubular collar that mine had and can't seem to find that style anywhere. Any ideas or keywords I can use?

It's a dress AND a painting!?

There's an artwork on public display in my community that isn't labeled with the artist's name or the title of the piece, and I'd like to know more about it. The facility that has it on display doesn't have the information, so I'm hoping you could take a look at it (or just read my description) and tell me if you know more about it, or where I could find out who created it and what it is called. It's a rather unique piece, being a full-length overcoat that's been hardened/cast and mounted on a large canvas. The yellow floral pattern of the coat is seamlessly transferred to the background of the canvas. For a link to a phone-cam pic I took of it, click [more inside]

Women's coat warm as Canada Goose, but not Canada Goose. And stylish.

I love to walk to and from work, all year long, and this requires a warm coat. My current coat doesn't keep me as reliably toasty as I'd like. I want something as warm as a Canada Goose coat, but I don't want that brand - i want something that every second person (in toronto) isn't already wearing, and that is (if possible) slightly more urban/stylish/flattering, and less sporty/functional looking. In particular, i really don't want a big logo/badge on it, as all Canada Goose coats do. I absolutely want a down-filled coat, though. (I've never seen a wool coat that is anywhere near as warm as down.) Bonus points for something available at a retail store in Toronto (or possibly NYC, which i visit occasionally), and that costs $700 or less.

From "Did you play football in highschool?" to "Are you up for tenure?"

AcademicClothesFilter: MetaFilter, help me (20ish dude) find a store that sells awesome tweed or professorial-like sportscoats/jackets! I am a beginning academic who hates suits, but soon I will start to teach and go to conferences and will need to "look the part." Thus, I need to update my wardrobe with something thematically between "formal" and "wannabe hipster causal." The hitch is: I am sort-of built like a linebacker, with a very broad chest and very wide shoulders but with a not-quite-commensurately-large bottom torso, and thus sizing can often be an issue for me (i.e., getting more fabric "up top" in generic sizes ends up with billowing fabric down below). Is there any store that sells hot to trot professorial tweed that might fit someone with my body build? Or will I need to get a loose fit and then get it tailored? (Is that... what tailoring is?).

Where to buy a deceptively warm coat?

I get cold easily. I'd like to buy a new men's winter coat that doesn't look like anything special but is secretly lined with magic warmth nodules.

I need a short, long, casual, formal, trendy, classic jacket.

Not really, but it’s just as tall of an order. I am looking to invest in a winter jacket, since I’m tired of buying one that falls apart after a couple of seasons. It needs to be formal, yet casual, and made for a body type that clothes just are not made for. I’m petite and busty. (Think Jessica Simpson’s body type, but even more… full figured in the upper area.) [more inside]

Explanation for mysteriously appearing clothing?

While trimming the hedges in my front yard (single family home located in a suburban area within a large midwest city) this afternoon, I came upon a men's size medium denim jacket underneath one of the hedges under my (first floor) bedroom window. While I think the most obviously explanation is it was probably discarded there for a totally banal reason (e.g. teens fooling around), is it possible that something more sinister is afoot? Is there any reason I should be concerned, and if so, what should I do?

Looking for a Gap military style jacket, circa 2009

Around 2009 / 2010 I bought a military surplus style jacket on sale from the Gap. It was green, made of a canvas type material, had elasticy cuffs, a French collar, zipped up the front, and had a secondary pocket on the breast which zipped vertically. It ended up getting paint on it, and I had to throw it out, but this was a great jacket, and I'd really like to have another one. The only problem is that I'm having trouble tracking it down.

Recommendations for cheap, lightweight rain jacket-y thing for biking

I bike commute every day year round and as a result often end up biking in the rain. I need recommendations for a lightweight, compact rain jacket-y thing that I can carry with me every day in my bag. It needs to be comfortable for summer. If it's a women's jacket, it needs to fit an XL-XXL with broad shoulders; men's jackets are also okay provided that the fit is fairly tailored. Compactness is key - I carry a medium-sized messenger bag and my current rain jacket takes up most of the room when I bring it. Warmth isn't really a concern as this is for times when I can't wear a wool jacket and hat. Should not be designed to fit super tight, as it will need to go over a shirt and possibly a light cardigan. Cheap is better than expensive, but I would pay for a spendy one if it were perfect.

Weird Jacket that slid ur phone into your hand.

I read this a LONG time ago, a jacket where you could snap ur wrist (or some other hand geuster/movement) and it cause ur phone (stored in the sleeve) to drop right into ur hand. It was awesome if slightly risky and I'd like to take a look at it again. Anyone know of it? Or something similar?
