eBay Inc. may be the biggest online clothing seller, but it's still known for selling other people's castoffs. Now it wants shoppers to think of it when looking for trendy duds like hipster jeans and red ballerina flats. EBay will launch a new fashion microsite Monday. It's the latest in a series of changes that will sometimes have it acting more like an outlet mall or "private sale" Web site. EBay is working with major fashion brands and retailers such as Hugo Boss and Lord & Taylor to act as sellers.

Slim silhouettes, flat-front pants, shimmering fabrics, and shoes without socks ruled the spring runways. While fun to look at, these styles don't necessarily translate to the average guy's wardrobe. One look that does easily make the transition from runway to reality, however, is the new combination of matching shirt and tie. All those novelty ties and bright white shirts of recent years are taking a back seat this season. It's time to enjoy the quiet elegance of a solid-colored necktie in a shiny textural weave paired with a shirt of the same hue. From gold on gold to blue on blue -- think Robert De Niro in the movie "Casino."

No wonder passers-by confuse After Midnight for a nightclub. There's music, dancing and a hip young crowd hanging around the clothing racks.It all fits the style of fashion rebel Mark Horner, who with his mother owns the eclectic women's clothing store in Fells Point that occasionally stays open until 2 a.m.Although he didn't know a bustier from a brassiere when he entered the business 10 months ago, Mr. Horner, 29, wasn't flustered. The venture has forced him to tone down his personal taste, though, especially during New York buying trips.

Before Michael Smith began working for the White House retail chain, his white wardrobe consisted of three things: socks, shirts and underwear.Today, of course, it's a different story. As the vice president of operations for the 27-store business that sells all-white clothing and accessories for women, Mr. Smith wears white from 9 to 5 -- and beyond.For a man, that's no easy feat. Wherever he is, Mr. Smith, 36, is constantly on the lookout for a find. Although he shops at Nordstrom in Towson, he says Miami and Los Angeles are the hot spots for menswear in pure white.

The Hamburgers clothing store chain, one of Baltimore's oldest and best-known businesses, is moving to close some of its 12 stores and plans to hold a clearance sale to raise cash.The decision comes two months after the chain's parent company warned that it would close the 142-year-old chain if it could not be sold.No buyer has surfaced, and analysts say it is unlikely that a savior would suddenly appear, given the depressed state of the industry."We have had preliminary discussions with third parties and landlords to transfer, assign or sell leases," says Jack Kaminski, president of the company, which began as an 8-by-8-foot tailor's shack near where the Inner Harbor now flourishes.
