I can't believe I'm asking a fashion advice question!

I'm a 60-something male whose regular "uniform" is jeans, T-shirt, and when it gets cooler, a flannel shirt open in the front with the sleeves rolled up. As it gets even cooler, I need to throw a jacket over this. So I'm looking for the right kind of jacket for this combination. Most of my jackets are short so they show the flannel shirt hanging down below. [more inside]

Staying cool when you run warm & staying warm when you run cold

For runners (especially women runners) is there such a thing as a lightweight jacket/top that keeps you cool, and also warm, on long runs in the rain? Or how else to dress for long runs on cold, rainy days? [more inside]

ISO the perfect on-and-off-the-bike jacket

I'd like a jacket that's suitable for bicycling during most of the year in the SF Bay Area, offers some resistance against wind and light rain, isn't too warm, doesn't look overly sporty, comes in a dark color (reflective accents OK), and (here's the kicker) will fit a curvy, 2X body. Help? Details and examples: [more inside]

Jackets for Active Athenas?

I've been pleasantly surprised by how easy it's been to find decent plus-sized cycling gear--until the temperature dropped. Now it's time for a warmish jacket to wear on my morning commute and weekend rides and I can't find a thing. Plus-sized active women, where do you shop for outerwear? [more inside]

Fake leather jacket? In NYC?

FashionFilter: Where can I buy an imitation leather men's jacket that doesn't look stupid? Do such things exist? I like leather a lot from the appearance standpoint, but while I eat meat, I don't see the consumption of leather or fur as particularly wholesome. Whenever I've tried Googling such things, the only jackets I ever find are bomber jackets, which are not my style -- I'd prefer something cleaner and more modern. Internet sites are fine, but serious bonus points for actual stores in New York City. And how much can I reasonably expect to pay for such a thing?

Darken the bright

Fashionmasters: I bought a snowboard jacket for this winter that I like a lot, but after a few months, I'm feeling it's perhaps a bit too loud. It has black sleeves, and the rest is a bright yellow color. What can I do (short of spray painting the thing) to deemphasize this brightness?
