Jewleryfilter: save my antique wedding ring

My wedding ring is my grandmother's and I've neglected it horribly. Please give me some ideas and language to use with a jeweler to rehabilitate it and perhaps transform it into something that will last another generation. Or tell me to put it in storage and get a beater instead because I am a danger to rings. [more inside]

Help me replace a lost sweater?

I’m looking to replace a sweater I lost. It’s dark blue, crop length, long sleeved, with white abstract angular shapes all over it. The white shapes reminded me of silhouettes of origami. I got it second hand and don’t think it had a tag on it. Any leads?

"Men's" crew-neck shirts with larger-than-normal necklines?

I am a cis man and love crew-neck t-shirts that have relatively wide or large necklines. The best I have been able to do is get lucky with some designery brands (usually too expensive/flimsy/silly for my daily shirt needs) or cut out the neck on regular crew necks (which works but ain't the same). Is anyone making the t-shirts of my dreams?? Also interested in other tops — sweaters, long-sleeve shirts, etc. — that have this feature! [more inside]

Work-appropriate women's jeans recommendations for 2017/2018?

I have realized it's time for new jeans. But I've also realized I'm out of touch with what's in style right now. Please help me pick a work-appropriate style that is most flattering to my body type and will not make me look a) fashion-ignorant or b) as though I'm trying to dress like one of my 20 year old students.

Does regular use of permanent hair dye/bleach cause baldness?

My mom permanently lost most of her hair by age 40. I recall seeing photos from when I was born (she was 30 then) and she still had some hair but it was very wispy and you could very easily see her scalp. My dad says it's because she regularly dyed/bleached her hair starting at age 14. Is this really a thing? [more inside]

Found something to put on my face! Now, how do I take it off?

A while back I asked this question about sunscreen. I tried a lot of stuff, including the Elta MD UV Pure (which worked great, btw!) But now I've found my Holy Grail Sunscreen. I just can't figure out how best to get it off my face efficiently, once it's on. [more inside]

Durable and good shoes for the wide-footed gent

My partner has had a poor run of luck with finding durable wide-width shoes. He has an active indoor job and, while he's had the best run with hiking shoes or light hiking boots, they invariably split in 6 months to a year. What are some durable hiking (or other) shoes for someone who wears a 12EEE and is on his feet all day? A subdued look is preferred and they need not be the height of fashion, but he'd be bothered if they were much more than $200. [more inside]

Female Talk Show Host (from 80s or 90s) with Awesome Hair

I'd like to show my hair dresser a photo of a female TV personality from my childhood who I remember as having awesome hair. She was a Caucasian lady with chin-length wavy dark hair with a lighter streak in the front. I think the show was a homey precursor to HGTV-type home shows. I remember her style being kind of preppy (sweater over a popped collar with a beaded necklace). [more inside]

Where can I find cool shirts matching for toddlers and little kids?

I usually buy my nephew lots of t-shirts (he's always had a Biggie Smalls shirt in his size). Recently my sister in law bought matching shirts for my nephew and my kid. Not only was it adorable to see the kids in their shirts, but my nephew loved that his cousin was wearing the same shirt. My kid's moving up in sizes right now, so I thought this would be a good time to buy some cool, off beat matching shirts for them! (Sizes would be 2T and 5.) [more inside]
