The Ravens have been fixtures on national television shows since winning Super Bowl XLVII a month ago. Wide receiver Jacoby Jones will be “Dancing with the Stars.” Head coach John Harbaugh and quarterback Joe Flacco, the Super Bowl MVP, stayed up late with Dave Letterman. Free safety Ed Reed played red-carpet reporter at the Oscars for NFL Network. Wide receiver Anquan Boldin and kicker Justin Tucker even played something called “bubble soccer” with Jimmy Fallon and actor and Baltimore native Josh Charles days after the win. But when soft-handed tight ends are critiquing fashion on TV, you know it is starting to get out of hand.

FEW COLUMNS - not even the one about albino groundhogs - sparked as much reader reaction as last Wednesday's tale of Philadelphian Bruce Fulmer's treatment in a fine Little Italy restaurant because of his attire. Fulmer wore red sweat pants, a gray pocket T-shirt and a pair of loafers when he entered Rocco's Capriccio for dinner Saturday evening. He was seated alone in an upstairs dining room, away from other diners. He perceived this as a slight and beefed about it. I figured a lot of people would empathize.

Towson High School, 9: 35 a.m. The bell for third period rings, the halls are teeming with humanity, and we're looking for slobs.You know the type: tattered jeans, T-shirts from some sleazy bar with a sophomoric name, sneakers that look like they're used to tap-dance in a mulch pit.Boy, you hate to see teachers looking like that.Right, on this overcast weekday morning, we're visiting area high schools to look for grungy-looking teachers. This is because there is a bill before the House Ways and Means Committee in Annapolis that would mandate a dress code for teachers.

Not all the sights at Cirque du Soleil's "Kooza" were onstage. Just check out 20-year-old Allie Bulmer, who was in the opening-night audience. The Montgomery College student and waitress loves watching current trends and adapting them to her "sophisticated, sexy and a little bohemian" style. But, this Damascus resident is no fashion fascist. "Everyone has their own style. The fashion police may say don't do that, but let people do [what they want]. If it's last season and you like it, that's fine.

TRUE STORY: A city principal used to display an industrial-size spool of twine on the front counter of the school office. Throughout the day, little boys emulating hip-hop video stars would slouch past her door, wearing droopy pants that revealed the advertising logos on the waistbands of their undershorts. She noted how the fashion hobbled them, as they could not trust their slight frames to keep the pants in place. "I'm gonna string you up," the administrator would growl, steering each baggy boy to a corner for a lecture on propriety.

The Harford County Board of Education voted last night to adopt a dress-code policy outlawing a range of clothing styles, including tank tops, sleepwear and flip-flop shoes - but not before more than a half-dozen students, administrators and parents raised concerns about its strictness and how it could be enforced. "Learning is not just what you find in a math book," said Jan McDonald, a parent of children at Bel Air Middle and Bel Air High schools. Learning to dress appropriately is one of the ways students learn to accept more responsibility, she said, and cautioned that the policy would turn administrators into "fashion police at the front door."
