WHILE THEY may look like extras from a 1940s prison movie, inmates at the Carroll County Detention Center are the real thing. The old-time, black-and-white-striped uniforms, with a red "P" (for prisoner) on the back, surely prevent walkaways and escapees from blending with the crowd. That's one benefit for public safety and better control at the crowded jail.But distinctive fashion is not the main reason that Carroll County Sheriff John H. Brown ordered the inmate garb last month. He says the two-piece uniform design, without pockets or a belt, makes it harder to smuggle contraband into and within the detention center.

COLLEGE PARK - -It seems long ago that Maryland quarterback Chris Turner appeared at the Atlantic Coast Conference's preseason media conference and said of the Terrapins: "We're easily a 10-win team." It was late July, the weather was warm and muggy, and Turner and other top ACC players had mixed media interviews with a round of golf at a resort in Greensboro, N.C. "We're not here to just win eight games and go to an average bowl," the senior quarterback had said. Twelve weeks later, Turner's Terrapins are 2-5 (1-2 ACC)

Muslim women and others who wear face coverings for religious purposes can be required to remove the garb to enter courthouses, Maryland's attorney general has determined in a legal opinion, raising concerns among civil liberties advocates about how the practice will be carried out. The opinion addresses a sensitive issue that has sparked debate and outcry in recent years, including protests over the French government's ban several years ago on the...

The social scene really heats up in Baltimore com September. New seasons for symphony and stage and lots of black-tie benefits and balls attract those who choose to schmooze stylishly.Paula Brauer, a salesperson at Gingiss Formal Wear in White Marsh Mall, says business certainly does increase around this time of year, with the majority of Baltimore men still opting for traditional black-tie garb -- basic black tuxedos or cutaways, worn with black ties and cummerbunds -- practical, chic, sure-fire dressing.

Dressed in a long, flowing authentic Nigerian robe and multicolored head dress, David Larner, assistant principal at Hammond Elementary, might have raised a few eyebrows last school year when he walked the halls on any other school day. But during the school's annual multicultural event, Larner, who is of Irish and Russian descent, fit right in as he wore his ethnic garb. Hammond Elementary will resemble a United Nations gathering at 7 p.m. Wednesday when pupils from 23 countries participate in "A Taste of Culture."

The only toy that requires batteries in Mumbles & Squeaks -- historic Ellicott City's new and only toy shop -- is the horse that whines when you touch its ears.All the other knickknacks and playthings run on imagination and innovation -- like the marionettes that hang from crisscross wooden sticks.Owners Ed Williams and Frank DiPietro, who opened the store in August, specialize in toys that spark creativity. They offer an array of hand puppets as well as wooden frogs, caterpillars and wooden trains that move by the tug of a string -- hand-fashioned toys that will withstand generations of wear and tear.

IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER than this. I spent six straight hours on the couch yesterday, and it was the best therapy session I've had since I sought counseling last year for my unhealthy obsession with Teri Hatcher and the rest of the female cast members of a certain very popular Sunday night television show. Didn't cost me a cent. I just sat in my basement and watched the Redskins and the Eagles get beaten like a pair of PETA protesters at an NRA pig roast, and it was a cathartic experience the intensity of which I have not experienced since Sylvester Stallone pounded the bejesus out of that commie Dolph Lundgren in Rocky IV. Like you, I've been rather angst-ridden about the Ravens, who are to be sacrificed in Pittsburgh tonight on Monday Night Football.

Pirates of all shapes and sizes bounded off the Clipper City tall ship yesterday, dressed in black hats and pirate garb, pistols at the ready, for their annual invasion of Fells Point. Greeting them was Vince Zegowitz, a 64-year-old retired oceanographer whose ruddy face attested to his 30 years at sea. He roamed the wharf with his family, dressed in loose black pants, black construction boots, a flowing white blouse, black vest and black bandana. "I feel like Johnny Depp in drag - because these are all women's clothes," he said jokingly.

MOSCOW -- Russian President Vladimir V. Putin is not typically a flashy guy. He tends to dress in conservative colors, is spare with emotion and, despite his compact frame, gives off a tough-guy look. From him, it can be said, one knows what to expect. Which is why it was unusual, a touch unsettling even, to see the former KGB officer striking a jaunty pose in the pages of one of the nation's most popular newspapers, the tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda, one recent morning. There he was, the normally staid and stoic head of state, bereft of his conventional dark suit and predictable tie, exercising a bit of fashion freedom by sporting more casual garb - in daring colors, no less.

From her home life to her snack habits to her age-appropriate attitude, much has been made about Kimmie Meissner's utter normalcy. And yesterday, in choosing a costume for her first Olympic performance in Turin, the fresh-faced figure skater again proved herself to be just a regular teenager from Bel Air - sans fringes, feathers or skate-fashion faux pas. Thank goodness. The 16-year-old took to the ice for the women's short program in a tame and only somewhat-shiny black number. Her cut-off sleeves were rimmed in tiny rhinestones.

In the old days, when he had a real job, Josh Fruhlinger's cubicle stood closer to the copy machine than anybody else's. Whenever the contraption sputtered or jammed, as it did several times a week, co-workers stampeded to his workspace, desperation in their eyes. Just as desperate, he fended them off. "I'd say, `No, no! Just because I sit near the photocopier does not mean I know how to fix it!" said Fruhlinger, now a freelance Web editor who says he works in his pajamas. "The office mentality stirs up its own kinds of psychosis."

Awadagin Pratt cuts a glamorous figure at the keyboard. His unconventional concert garb -- colorful, open-necked shirts and casual trousers -- are stylish enough to grace the cover of GQ. Without a shirt, his athletic body could land him on the cover of Men's Health and Fitness. To put it simply, he's drop-dead beautiful. His piano-playing is another matter.Pratt, who performed Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major last night with the Baltimore Symphony, idolizes the playing of the late Glenn Gould.
