It wasn't so long ago that Banana Republic was the Temple of Khaki. We're talking Jeep rammed through the front window of the store and a catalog filled with references to Africa and the jungle and brimming with khaki pants, vests and ghurka shorts. The store is now better known for its tres fashionable work and casual clothes, but Banana Republic hasn't forgotten its khaki roots -- that much is evident from its spring collection. Now, however, the store is calling the stuff "chino" and making it look more contemporary and less weekendy.

Gentlemen, you're generally pretty good about knowing what to wear to a funeral and what to wear when mowing the grass. It's just everything in between that's confusing! The old stand-by golf shirt with khakis has its place, but it is not appropriate for every casual function and, honestly, not the most hip. Whether you want to look cooler or just more polished, knowing how to dress casually with savvy will add to your credibility and confidence in your varied casual circumstances. Daytime date: Whether strolling around the lake or visiting the latest collection at the Walters, a laid-back (not sloppy)

Khaki. By definition: drab, yellowish-brown, originating from the Persian word khak, which means dust or ashes. Used predominantly in military uniforms around the world and, more recently, as a color on pants and skirts that can go with pretty much anything, except maybe gray, depending on whom you ask. But at the Naval Academy, khaki is officially acquiring a new meaning: leadership. Instead of the dark blue working uniforms that midshipmen wear in classes or attending to everyday matters on the campus - and which, fashion police might add, are a bit drab in their own right - seniors have begun donning khaki.

This summer, top fashion magazines have declared that the T-shirt is the hot style staple to have. In multipage fashion spreads, the style guides show T-shirts of all kinds that are in this season: bold graphic tees, attention-grabbing logo tees, edgy rock 'n' roll tees. All the shirts are versatile in ways a good T-shirt should be - they're interesting enough to wear casually dressed down, and slightly dressy enough to pair with a jacket and designer jeans for a night on the town. But the Hollywood-endorsed tees, fabulous as they are, can be pricey.

Here is the true story of a man of daring, a man of confidence, a man with the requisite je ne sais quoi -- which is French for "khaki slacks and collared shirt" -- to go where no man has gone before: a women-only party. Giarc Tuots, whose name has been cleverly spelled backward for privacy, saw the "Open House" invitation on his kitchen counter and noted the date. His wife -- who was invited -- read it as well, but it was only in a paragraph toward the bottom that the phrase "for my women friends" appeared, and how many of us have time to read the fine print on a party invitation?

Annapolis Carjack suspect faces federal trial Federal prosecutors stepped in Thursday to announce the indictment of an Annapolis man who police say implicated himself in a 2002 carjacking and killing near the State House but who was freed after Maryland courts threw out his statement to police. Nine months after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to revive the state's case against Leeander Jerome Blake, he was indicted by a federal grand jury in Baltimore on charges of first- and second-degree murder, carjacking, and two firearms offenses.

Jamal Lewis left behind the matching diamond earrings he wore to court last year. The prison doesn't allow its residents earrings. He left behind his purple Ravens No. 31 jerseys. The running back has a new color now - institutional khaki - and a new number. It's 55612-019. As prisoners usually do, Lewis relinquished a great deal when he reported to Federal Prison Camp in Pensacola, Fla., shortly before noon yesterday to begin serving a four-month sentence. Lewis, 25, hopes this sad interlude in his NFL career will end a saga that began in 2000 when he met a woman - a government informant - and made a series of mistakes that, despite what a judge described as a weak case against him, sent him to the minimum-security work camp.

NEW YORK - Martha Stewart, who built an empire on living with grace, today faces the prospect of living without freedom. Stewart's sentencing for lying, conspiring and obstructing an investigation into the 2001 sale of her ImClone Systems stock is scheduled for this morning at the downtown federal courthouse. Many legal experts expect her to follow other formerly rich and powerful corporate leaders to prison for at least 10 months. After a widely followed six-week trial in March, Stewart and her Merrill Lynch stockbroker Peter E. Bacanovic were convicted and have been twice denied new trials.

OK. GUY GOES INTO a store (reluctantly). Guy spends maybe 15 minutes wandering the aisles (dazedly). Guy spots blue shirt he actually likes (miraculously). Guy buys 11 (most definitely).Today we are discussing how guys relate to clothes. Which, as the above scenario indicates, is in multiples. Guys like to buy clothes in multiples, because that way they can avoid two things they really hate to do -- shop and think.You see, guys feel very different about clothes than girls do. Girls see clothes as a way to be wonderful.
