Nick Scott believes in the adage "less is more." The 24-year-old Hampden resident keeps his style minimalist. He keeps it simple at work as an educational aide at the Forbush School at Sheppard Pratt, generally wearing T-shirts and jeans at work. For going out, he has a handful of dress shirts that he likes to combine with either a vintage tie or vest, black jeans and a fedora. So, how does Scott describe his look? "I take a little bit from the 1920s and the 1950s and modern British punk.

You recently told readers not to put Vicks VapoRub in the nose. You suggested that camphor, an ingredient in Vicks, might be the problem. As a pulmonary physician, I can explain the real reason there is a warning against putting Vicks VapoRub in the nostrils. It is not the camphor, but the petrolatum. Petroleum jelly or mineral oil can cause a chronic form of pneumonia when aspirated into the lungs. Most people inhale minute quantities of their nasal secretions, especially during sleep.

"When I was growing up," says Baltimore-based architect Rolf Haarstad, "my main impetus in life was to be a man who takes a shower before work instead of afterward." Meaning a professional who has less dirt under his fingernails than on the bottom of his shoes, and a suit or two hanging in his closet. He's made it, and if you ask his wife, fellow architect Kathleen Lechleiter, she might say markedly so. His closet is twice the size of hers, and he has plans to add onto their Towson house, turning 8-year-old daughter Elsa's current bedroom into a big closet (don't worry, she gets a new room)

This spring, the slogan for guys' clothes could be "color me colorful." The dress shirts and ties look like a flower garden bloomed in the men's department. From pastel pinks and yellows to deeper corals and greens, spring has definitely sprung. And, style experts say, guys are ready and willing to embrace these colorful changes. They're tired of the drab grays, blacks and maroons of fall. They want the brighter, lighter hues. Yellow, green, coral, Persian blue, light blue, pink and lavender can be found in almost any name brand.

HOUSTON - To Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk, the Houston Bowl is all about "showing we can deliver." The Midshipmen could have as many as 20,000 backers in the stands at Reliant Stadium when the game is played Tuesday, a statement that would serve the academy football team well when it is being considered for future bowl appearances. Thanks to an unusual loyalty-discount plan, Navy is guaranteed to outsell the home-state representative, Texas Tech. "My goal has been 20,000 all along," Gladchuk said.

At the start of this decade, all a man needed to look modern was something as simple as a Bill Clintonlike double-breasted suit, a checked shirt or a tie with, well, purple flowers. Remember how hip Al Gore looked in a Jerry Garcia tie?But times and images have changed. Corporate clothes now run a wide gamut from a navy dress suit to a sweater vest. Informal dressing has taken on a certain priority. So an updated look is built around more casual items such as, say, a nylon jacket with a cell phone pocket, a turtleneck sweater or a briefcase with laptop space.

WASHINGTON -- Yes, yes, we have been told. Philosophers tell us that change is life's only constant. Poets tell us that the center cannot hold, and all that is beautiful drifts away like the waters. Scientists say even the continents are adrift.But Brooks Brothers, the clothier founded in Manhattan in 1818, was supposed to be the still point of the turning world. For generations it has defined conservatism in men's dress -- blue and gray natural shoulder suits, blue and white oxford cloth shirts with button-down collars, striped ties.
