Sue sent me this request by e-mail:
This morning I dropped off a blazer at the dry cleaners. The blazer is a lovely purple and it’s a thrift find. The shop owner commented that it could have been attacked by moths, there are some tell-tale tiny holes. I’m now on the fence about whether to keep it or toss it.
Anyway this experience made me realize how little I do know about wool, and seeing as the cold months are coming up, I was wondering if you might do a post on this on the site. Some of the things I wonder about are:

Sarah V had this request:
I would love to get your take on what to wear for a long flight. I want to look nice but be comfortable and not get too hot.
I can’t say that I’ve got any amazing or unusual tricks for long flight comfort, but I’m happy to share my formula!
Since long flights generally involve long stretches of time spent in airports before and after, picking soft, stretchy fabrics will be key. I stick to knits – jersey, ponte, and various sweater knits all of which can look chic and sophisticated in the right styles and cuts.

Kaitlin threw this doozy into the suggestion box:
Knee socks and leg warmers!!! I love them, but how to wear them? They’re great casually, but I’d like to figure out how to work them a little more professionally–can I? I like them with tights or leggings, but then they tend to make my legs look really weird.
And let me tell you, friends, I had to scour the archives to find an outfit in which I’d utilized knee socks. I also unearthed this one, which is pretty similar to the above, but that’s about it. All this to say that I don’t consider myself a bona-fide expert on knee socks OR legwarmers, and hope you can all chime in with your own suggestions.
