WASHINGTON - Martha Stewart, Yahoo, Yellow Jackets. Don't laugh. Just buy, which means pencil in Georgia Tech for a few rounds on your NCAA tournament bracket. This is a safe bet, even if it's going to be the latest, greatest fad among March's mad day traders. By the time this newspaper hits your front walk, Georgia Tech's long-festering secret will no longer be a secret. The Yellow Jackets will probably be rated by Morningstar. Not a bad surge for an unranked team that got zero respect most of the season for its NCAA tournament run last year.

About odd jackets, gray flannel slacks, and button-down oxford-cloth shirts worn without a tie -- is this still a preferred mode of dress? I've always thought it is a classic.A: I agree. The combination you described is a widely accepted way of dressing; it is one outfit every man looks good in. For casual occasions that do not require a tie, this weekend wardrobe staple is almost never wrong. Yet, even within these limits, a great many variations present themselves as options.Jacket possibilities include: a single-breasted blue blazer or a more formal double-breasted navy wool; a camel's hair jacket; a gray houndstooth or tan tweed sports coat; a beige raw silk; a white wool-and-linen blend resort look; one of the fashion-forward draped rayon-and-wool jackets for spring; summer pastel cotton or linen blazers; narrow-striped seersuckers.
