As I know Stack Exchange generally frowns on "shopping questions", I wanted to ask about this here on Meta before posting it on Main.
I own a piece of gear (a hat) and I would like to buy another one similar to it, but I have not been able to find one. I would like to ask the community if anyone knows of a similar item currently on the market.
Would such a question be acceptable? Is there anything in particular that I should include or avoid?
I would include a description and picture of the item I'm trying to replace. I'm not really looking for general suggestions on what to buy, though if someone has experience with a similar product that would of course be useful. It would be useful for answers suggesting a product to include information about where I could buy it, but price shopping is not the focus of my question.
