Q You often mention cuffs on trousers. You must favor the look. Aren't cuffs old-fashioned, if not actually dated?A: Some styles have an aristocratic air. Cuffs on trousers fit this category. They give a fine-finished, polished look to a suit. Men who pay attention to the details of dress invariably have their suits cuffed. Odd trousers, not part of a suit, also benefit from this well-tailored finishing touch.The abrupt end of a plain hem on pants seems to suggest a hurried bit of casual tailoring.

A man accused of fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend in 2013 was unable to attend his own trial in Baltimore County Tuesday after he refused to wear a stun cuff. Jeffrey Matthew Shiflett, 35, charged with murdering Katie Hadel, 33, missed opening statements after Circuit Judge Ruth Ann Jakubowski ordered that he wear an ankle bracelet that can deliver an electric shock. Jakubowski made the order after Shiflett screamed the judge's first name repeatedly and attempted to enter her chambers as he was being escorted to the courtroom before the trial.

Q: I've noticed guys in my office wearing cuffs on their pants. The tailor says I'm too short for them. Is he right? If not, how wide should they be?A: It is nonsense that cuffs make a man appear shorter. True, an eye-catching belt cutting across one's middle visually affects how tall he appears; but a horizontal line so close to the ground does not affect the eye one way or another. What is true: Cuffs make any outfit appear to be better-tailored. Plain bottoms -- especially on suits -- seem to have less finesse.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles minor leaguer Matt Hobgood, the fifth-overall pick in the 2009 draft, threw his first bullpen session of the spring and just his second since season-ending rotator-cuff surgery 11 months ago on Sunday morning at the Buck O'Neil Baseball Complex at Twins Lakes Park. He threw a brief pen session in instructional league in October. Hobgood, who has been limited to 42 games in his minor league career because of inconsistency and injury, said he's pitching pain free for the first time in nearly four years.

Collars out, cuffs buttonedFashion is not always what you wear, but how you wear it. Even the classic shirt is subject to seasonal styling variations. The way to wear it now is in a retro-disco-gigolo way with the collar open and outside the jacket of a pantsuit. Keep the cuffs buttoned. Drooping and flapping cuffs were last year. From the Isaac Mizrahi designer level to career clothes by INC, it's collars out. Who decides these things? The fashionistas do, just to keep women guessing. What's life like for a cover girl?

Dear Marylou: I was always told that the cuff of a man's shirt should show about a quarter of an inch below the sleeve of his jacket. I note that more and more are no longer showing any shirt-cuff. Please comment. -- A.J.A., Montvale, N.J.Dear A.J.A.: I took your question to Italian menswear designer Gianni Versace, who says he does not believe in rules in menswear. "What feels the best and looks the best for each individual is what matters," says the man who dresses stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Prince, Sting, Don Johnson, George Michael, Michael Jackson and Phil Collins.

If Santa doesn't make his rounds this year, it could mean he's still handcuffed in Baltimore.Two of Charm City's biggest claims to fame - drugs and over-the-top Christmas decorations - have made an un-merry convergence in a Hampden rowhouse. There, a 3-foot-tall St. Nick mannequin stands Flex-Cuffed by the family tree. City police slapped the nylon restraints on Santa as a joke during a drug raid at the home Friday night, according to Frank Clowers Sr. Clowers, 47, was the one police were really after.

I often think that lie detector tests fall in the same category as law enforcement in WWE -- they should be seen as sporadic as possible. At least in the case of the former, they are used infrequently. How long has it been since we have seen a lie detector test in WWE in recent memory? To me, that's a good thing. Imagine how boring (albeit civil) feuds in WWE would be if this was part of every one. In the main event of Raw, CM Punk accepted being part of one on Miz TV. It wasn't necessarily the lie detector test itself -- it was the verbal jabs back and forth between these two that made for some quality TV. On top of Paul Heyman receiving a new nickname (Walrus)

Former Orioles top pick Matt Hobgood, who has battled ineffectiveness and injury in his brief pro career, will have right rotator-cuff surgery April 2 and is expected to miss all of the 2012 season. The 21-year-old Hobgood, whom the Orioles selected in the first round (fifth overall) in 2009, was shut down earlier this month with shoulder discomfort, something that previously has hampered him in his career. He was examined by Dr. Craig Morgan earlier this week and surgery to repair the shoulder was recommended, according to John Stockstill, the Orioles' director of player development.

Eyrania Smith is, in the words of Maryland's second-highest court, a "truly innocent and injured" person. Eyrania Smith, in the words of the same judges of Maryland's Court of Special Appeals, has no basis to sue over her mistreatment. That ruling comes even though all sides agree that Smith was mistakenly arrested on a city warrant that should never have existed, taken away by a police officer who left her two children alone in a car in a highway parking lot, and was shackled by her left wrist and ankles to a pole for more than 12 hours in a Baltimore County police precinct.

With two young left fielders vying for playing time, the Orioles devised an initial blueprint for the start of the season: Use Felix Pie on the Tropicana Field turf while Nolan Reimold continues rehabilitating his surgically repaired left Achilles tendon. Let Reimold be the designated hitter in the third game of the season and then have him play in the field once the club gets back to Camden Yards. That carefully scripted plan lasted a day. Pie was scratched from Wednesday's lineup with a strained left rotator cuff, forcing Reimold to start in left earlier than expected.

Marin Alsop is back in town for her first Baltimore Symphony Orchestra concerts since last month's sensational production of Leonard Bernstein's Mass that won over audiences and quite a few critics in New York and Washington, as well as right here. The conductor will lead two performances of a full-length program this weekend at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, as well as introduce a new series there called "Off the Cuff." This latest BSO product has Alsop's name all over it. The concept is simple: one work of music, preceded by a discussion of it, all packaged together in 90, intermission-less minutes or less.

The man who escaped from a state prison van on his way to Baltimore Circuit Court on Tuesday didn't have a very difficult time of it. The corrections officer driving the van told a judge yesterday that she didn't normally transport prisoners to court but had missed a morning drop-off in Jessup with other officers who were supposed to take him to Baltimore. After a conversation with a supervisor, Officer Deborah Barron said, she believed she had orders to bring him downtown herself. She took a regular van that lacked cages and any other security features.

Quarterback Steve McNair will have surgery on his partially torn rotator cuff today, ending one of the worst seasons of his 13-year NFL career and perhaps concluding his run with the Ravens. McNair, 34, who was placed on injured reserve yesterday, will have his left (nonthrowing) shoulder repaired at a Baltimore hospital. Kyle Boller, who started his third straight game last night, is expected to remain the starter for the rest of the season. This is the earliest McNair's season has ended - despite his history of injuries, he surprisingly had never been placed on injured reserve - but it's unknown whether his time with the Ravens is over.
