I just purchased a bunch of new clothing at Theory, which is definitely a much hipper store than I'm used to shopping at. (My old standby was Banana Republic.) The sales staff was very helpful, and I'm very pleased with what I came home with, but I'd love some help in mixing and matching everything. Photos of (almost) all of the items I bought can be found here

Which clothing stores in NYC have good casual/business casual clothes for larger men? My boyfriend and I are going clothes shopping this coming Saturday to prepare for an upcoming trip. He has a suit, but other than that, all his clothes are jeans and tees. For this trip, we are looking for: casual button down shirts (oxfords or plaids), non-jeans/non-khaki trousers, a sport coat or blazer, and some shoes that fall in between the New Balance sneakers he usually wears and the nice black shoes he wears with his suit. Sizes and price range below the cut. [more inside]

I've been dropping off my laundry for the past several years now, but really only know about the drop and fold. My work wardrobe is more business attire these days (male), but can't seem to figure out the terms and services usually available. This may sound a little silly, but I run into language barriers and unclear signs in every laundromat in a 10 block radius.
So whats usually available besides the classic wash & fold (and dry cleaning)?
-I have button down shirts, what does pressed mean?
-Whats the correct term for wash and iron? Sometimes they look puzzled. (sometimes they don't have this service)
-If you have your shirts done itemized, the $1.75 each option, what are they doing?
-How do most men get there work shirts laundered at these places?
Thanks, and note: these laundromat persons around me are all pleasant, and hard workers, but I just can't figure out whats what.

Where do the more fashionable young men in NYC get their slacks? I need some nice pants and I don't want to look like my father. Where can I get some fashionable, slimmer, non-break, pants in NYC? [more inside]

I am a 12-16, but I often find that I cannot fit into the highest 'straight size' at a mainstream retailer. This said, I cannot shop in a plus-size store as their smallest size hangs on me. I find this very frustrating! [more inside]

I am helping to dress my man for an upcoming rock show. He will be performing in front of an amazing assortment of VIP's, including artists, tastemakers, and fashion icons. I don't know much about menswear, and he pretty much hates dealing with clothes, so I need some advice. [more inside]
