Q: This winter I asked my kids for black socks for Christmas because I have so much trouble matching my suits. They bought me some, but also said it might be time for their Dad to "get with the times." How do you suggest you match socks with suits?A: If the acceptable range of men's suit colors seems limited (blue, gray, and khaki), the range of shoe colors to go with them is even more restricted (black and dark brown). Socks can provide some variety.Today, many well-dressed men choose patterned socks: pin dots, minichecks, herringbones, paisleys and other designs usually associated with necktie patterns.

According to fashion lore, Charles Revson, founder of Revlon Inc., would fire any male employee who showed up at the office in brown -- not black -- shoes in the '30s. Today, men's business footwear has moved beyond the black wingtip -- not only are brown shoes acceptable, they're suddenly chic.The brown blitzkrieg began last year as shoe manufacturers reacted to the new earth tones that started showing up in menswear collections. Black shoes look too heavy when paired with suits in olive or taupe shades, explain shoe savants.

John Pielmeier's theological thriller "Agnes of God" is more interested in questions than in answers. Even if you've seen a few productions of this drama since its Broadway debut in 1982, you may not be sure what to make of the central mystery that's once again explored in a solid production at the Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre. The playwright's immaculate conception for his play involves a young nun whose secret pregnancy prompts an investigation to learn which men would have had access to the cloistered convent.

Here's something you don't see everyday: a woman who is not afraid to combine her black-and-cream sundress with accessories in a color that doesn't match anything -- but themselves. Too many of us would have taken this dress and worn it with black shoes and neutral jewelry. True, if the shoes were gorgeous, no style-seeker would have complained. But pairing cream and black with a cool blue, as Holly Barzyk did at Pazo restaurant, makes people notice. Such color courage is the mark of a true fashionista.

Perhaps you spotted him at a bar - fellow with a shaved head and arms like a wrestler. What was he up to? If it was Brandon Welch, he was doing what actors, writers and other students of human behavior often do. He was watching, listening, seeking stories, characters. "You can talk about anything with people who don't know you," says Welch. "It's like being in an AA meeting." Welch has been known over the years to wander Baltimore's streets at all hours, stepping from bar to bar to bus station, to anywhere the city's life might reveal itself.

MIAMI -- Jerome Brown was a giant man who could scare you with a maniac's snarl and midnight eyes that came at you like drill bits. Jerome Brown was a giant little boy with a big soft smile that laughed some.Jerome Brown was ... Past tense, and future all gone. Sudden as a dreadful phone call in the middle of the night.Jerome Brown was. A hell of an awful word to use for a person age 27.When I heard last evening that Jerome had just died, in an auto accident, they said, memories of his University of Miami football years came at me like random snapshots, and the first one showed those big, ugly black shoes of his. It's crazy what the mind delivers to you.A muddy practice, I recall.
