Hot-weather clothing for a job interview

I have a job interview with the local arm of a national nonprofit, where I would be working as an editorial assistant. I've been wearing a suit on job interviews, but it's black and lined, and the cut of the jacket doesn't allow a shirt underneath. The weather has been humid, and heat and barometric pressure set off migraines and anxiety. Would wearing a nice neutral-colored blouse and a skirt be acceptable for an interview for this kind of job?

I want to learn how to tailor my own clothes

Hello MeFites. I have a lot of clothes that are a bit big for me. I'd like to learn how to take things in properly. I'm looking for beginner resources but something more advanced than just being told to sew things up both sides. Can you recommend blogs or youtube channels? [more inside]

Summer Hoodie of My Dreams

So this is the summer weight hoodie of my dreams: the American Giant Summer Full Zip . I ordered it in the lovely Deep Marine in an XL. It's fantastic: nice weight, all cotton, great zipper, etc. But it seems like these are made for slim athletic people who like their clothes tight. That is not me. And they don't make this in XXL. I am sad. [more inside]

Best Intersection of Price and Quality for Men's Undershirts?

I (a woman) like wearing men's "A" undershirts to dance classes. The cheap ones I've tried (Gildan and Fruit of the Loom) lose all their rebound after a few washes. Is there a better price per wearing solution? Nothing over $10 or so, I am taking two classes a day and need a bunch.

Men's bathing suits that look & work like regular shorts?

I like to wear a bathing suit a lot of the time when I'm hiking in the summer, so that if I see some water I can jump in for a quick dip and then dry off with minimal fuss. I'd like it even better if I had a bathing suit that could do a convincing impression of a normal pair of shorts. Halp? [more inside]
