The other day I achieved ecstasy, and it occurred to me that you might want to learn how.Ecstasy arrived in a box my wife had neatly wrapped for my 47th birthday. Upon opening it, my eyes bulged, my heart raced.Nestled warmly inside the box were 42 identical black socks.While they lasted, there would be no need to match black socks. Any two would do. And if the dryer ate one of them, 41 identical ones would remain.My remaining life's goal is to own 42 identical white sweat socks. Black socks for work, white socks for play.

What, exactly, made 17-year-old Trayvon Martin "suspicious" in the eyes of the man who shot him to death? The question makes me think back to the time before my mom passed away, when she was hospitalized in a highly respected hospital here in Baltimore. On one Sunday, after church, I went to visit her. Security at this hospital was in full action that day. Each visitor, apparently, had to sign in to declare what person and room they intended to visit. I was dressed in a black suit, white shirt, black tie, black socks and black dress shoes.

COLLEGE PARK -- Laron Profit used to dribble just to dribble. Behind-the-back dribbles, crossover dribbles, anything to be flashy and noticed.He used to stare a lot, too. "A vicious stare," he called it. Like when he'd block another player's shot, or throw down a thunderous dunk.Then there was the talking trash-talking, actually. "I talked loudly," Profit said. And often, apparently.That was the old Laron Profit, the pre-Maryland Profit. Hardly recognizable from the still-flamboyant freshman who has made his mark in Maryland's run to an NCAA tournament date Friday in Tempe, Ariz.

For Alison Panzer, dressing is truly a family affair. She and her husband share clothes -- and even go shopping for T-shirts together. (It also helps that they wear the same size in jeans.) Then there's Kyley, their 14-month-old daughter. She already shows signs of adopting her parents' "modern bohemian" style, appearing in mismatched canvas sneakers, bold primaries and leggings. Says the 26-year-old Belcamp mother, "My philosophy is, 'Whatever you like, whenever you like it.'"How has motherhood affected your wardrobe?

Consider the tuxedo. Adored by some; abhorred by others. Understand its social history, and set creativity free.At some distant point on the fashion spectrum, the tuxedo was born. It struggled forth, fathered by white tie and tails and mothered by invention. It grew rapidly, feeding on the desire of men for a less conservative way to meet society.In "Man at His Best" (Addison-Wesley, $24.95), written by the editors of Esquire, the birth date of the tuxedo is proclaimed as October 1886. Griswold Lorillard, moneyed descendant of an American tobacco family, strode into a country club that his father had helped found in Tuxedo Park near New York City.

LOS ANGELES -- They certainly weren't inspired by the uniformed sameness of the June Taylor dancers.And forget any fashion comparisons to the lame-clad "Solid Gold" shakers and movers.The Flygirls, a quintet of stylish hoofers who hip-hop on the Fox TV show "In Living Color" every Sunday night, have a look that might best be described as a combination of street chic, haute couture and K mart blue-light special. The mishmash of styles has inspired designers worldwide to clone the look, and legions of wanna-bes canvass the racks of Los Angeles boutiques in hopes of doing the same thing.

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.
