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

I'd like to get some shirts in the range between t-shirts and formal shirts. Off-the-shelf fit never works; is there a way to get such shirts custom-made? [more inside]

I wear buttoned-down, collar shirts everyday, for work and for leisure. The last couple of seasons I had tons and tons of options in stores like Old Navy and H&M as a rather small woman, but the shelves this season signals that shirts are no longer in. Where can I look for affordable but stylish shirts? [more inside]

A few years ago Target sold long sleeved Converse branded Henley shirts like this
that I loved. I have lost a couple of these over the years and I am looking to replace them, but it looks like they've been discontinued. So, mefites, where can I find these shirts, or something similar to replace them? The Target shirts were pretty cheap, but I'm open to spending more for clothing that will last. Thanks.

Where can I find good yoga clothes for men? Mid-length pants and shirts that don't fall all over the place. My old Lululemon stuff was well-designed and held up wonderfully, but they don't seem to make any purpose-designed yoga clothes for men anymore. [more inside]

I am looking for nice dress shirts to wear to the office that would be made of some kind of microfiber or quick-dry fabric. In our office we cannot wear polo shirts, so it has to be the traditional type of collar shirt. In the 90+ summer heat and humidity, I am a wet mess by the time I get into the office. I don't like cotton shirts for this reason, that they get sopping wet and don't dry out fast enough.

So, for the longest time, I have coveted some of the vests sold by San Fransisco alt clothing store Five and Diamond such as this
I like getting occasionally dressed up and I tend to favor stark contrasts of a white collard shirt with something else (a vest a tie etc.) when I do. I am looking for something like that but, as in the linked vest, with a little extra pizazz That being said, I don't get dressed up often enough these days (nor do I necessarily make enough money) to rationalize dropping that much money on a single item. Anyone have cheaper ideas of where to find similar items?

Bought a remnant of this fabric at Nancy's Sewing Basket in Seattle, and was told there was no chance of getting more or finding out any information about it (the bolt with the item and vendor numbers had been discarded.) I need more, and AskMefi has found stranger things. Pictures within. [more inside]

I have volunteered to "coach" a high school trivia team that competes against other local schools. In order to make things a bit more official I thought we should have team shirts made. Most of the sports teams have some clever slogan or saying on the back which indicates how great they are at their chosen sport. My group of super-brainy students and I are having a hard time figuring out what our slogan should be. Obviously it must be school appropriate, but other than that we are very open to suggestions.

I have a recurring problem with my clothes that's driving me crazy. I have narrow shoulders and a small ribcage (think 30A bra size), and almost all my knit shirts have this problem where the shoulder seam winds up sliding forward over the course of the day. Within a few hours, the seam is 1-2 inches down the front of my shoulder instead of at the top, and my bra is in danger of showing. I tend to wear drapey styles (and, right now, nursing shirts). Is this fixable? Am I just buying the wrong clothes? Please help!

I'm ruining my shirts. For the 6th time in the last few months, I was sitting at my desk at work today and felt like my elbow was cold. I reached down and discovered a tear in the left elbow of my dress shirt. Every time this has happened, it's been on the bottom of the left elbow, and it's always happened on a work day. Why is this happening to me? [more inside]

Hi everyone. It gets a little chilly up here in the winter, and I like to layer up with a long-sleeve t-shirt. I'd like them to come up snugly right around the base of the neck (without being a turtleneck, obviously), but this has proven more difficult than you might think. [more inside]

I'm trying to build a small wardrobe of versatile, well made, neutral basics(who isn't?), with a twist. I have work clothes provided by my employer, so I only need happy fun time clothes. I have nice plain T's. I need some shirts that are a step up but not button downs; I have to wear them at work and hate them. I'm a woman, mid-forties, 5'3", pear shaped, size 4/6/8 depending on the brand. I have a small waist and enjoy emphasizing it in a fully covered, non-binding way. My budget is about $100 a piece. Suggestions?

So a while back I picked up a shirt I liked a lot made by Bruno New York and have been trying to find some more along the same lines but my searching has turned up nothing. It's a short sleeved plaid shirt, with one snap button at the very bottom and the pocket flaps are asymetrical also having snap buttons.
Hope you can point me to where I can find some more (the one I got was from good old TJ Maxx...)

I've had a black leather jacket for four or five years, and the jacket itself is probably twenty years old. I never had it stain anything until I began wearing white button-up shirts to work, but now I have a bunch of shirts with dirty collars that don't wash out. What can I do? [more inside]

I love this top
but not for the amount of money they want. I like the deep v neck, the gathered shoulders, the ruched bottom, and the long sleeves. I want it in black, preferably. Any dupes out there?

I am looking for somewhere online (or in Edinburgh) that sells men's organic cotton long sleeve formal shirts with no pattern, ideally slim fit in a 15inch collar. They need to be shipping from the UK, or the EU in a pinch, I really don't want to order from the US. I know, this might be impossibly specific, but I figured after an hour of fruitless google it's worth asking the hive mind.

I'm just under 5'5". Unusually (I think?) for someone of average height, I have long legs *and* a long-ish waist. This is possible because the distance between my shoulders and under-arms is, apparently, according to the shirts of the world, unusually short. [more inside]

Which brands carry decent non iron slim fit dress shirts for Men (size -14.5 - 32/33)?
I have almost bought every single one I like at Brooks Brothers. Their fit is good but I am looking to shop from another brand so that I have more choice. Also I would prefer to go with a brand that has a good online store (hate going to the mall). Please note it has to be non iron. I am okay with BB prices but wouldn't mind learning about more reasonable options - Thanks!

Is there anything comparable in quality to, but cheaper than, Brooks Brothers shirts?
I usually buy the no-iron, slim-fit BB shirts, but I'm trying not to drop too much cash, as I need to replace all my shirts (WTF deodorant stains?!). I don't like the ginormous blousey shirts that typically pass for men's dress shirts, so recommendations for something along the lines of BB's slim-line shirts, qualitatively comparable but cheap enough that I'd switch brands would be appreciated.

Looking for fitted shirts similar to INC from Macy's, which is the only brand I've found shirts from that I've really liked. I work in a semi-casual workplace (no jeans/shorts, but untucked button-up shirts are fine), and I like shirts that I'll also wear on my days off. I'm pretty thin, so I need shirts that don't balloon out at the waist, and I tend to like relatively simple designs (plain colors/stripes, with a preference for monochrome). Preferably, the shirts would hold up well without ironing, since I only have a hand-steamer. What brands other than INC should I check out? (I'm in Southern California, so please stick to brands that would be available for trying on around here.)
