Buy a shirt, save the world. OK, it might not be that easy. But at Boulder, an eco-conscious clothing store for men, customers can do their part to make a difference in the environment. "Everything we do is centered around the environment, animal welfare and community," says general manager Evan Saulsbury. "We want you to feel good about how you look and know where your clothes come from. " Boulder, which opened this summer, is the latest addition to Conscious Corner in Clarksville -- a collection of businesses on Route 108 near River Hill that are focused on healthy and mindful living.

David Hart is a bit of an anomaly in the world of fashion. In an industry dominated by larger-than-life personalities, fickle taste and cutthroat politics, he prefers to play nice, stay cool and let his work do the talking. "I really appreciate all the people that I've met and the relationships I've built," said Hart, 32. "I treat people the way I like to be treated. I really respect the talent of the people I've worked with. As a result, people respect me as well. " His approach has ingratiated him with the fashion elite.

Whoever coined the phrase "this is a man's world" clearly never visited Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Here, women and their wears, reign supreme. There are exceptions though. Award-winning American designer, Joseph Abboud, has been a fixture in men's fashion for decades. He's dressed everyone from Wynton Marsalis to baseball great Nomar Garciaparra. He'll lead off the festivities today with a show at New York Public Library. I'm excited. He knows what looks good on a guy. Lucky for you Baltimore readers, you can find his creations at J.S. Edwards in Pikesville.

Just as temperatures began to reflect autumn's imminent arrival on the East Coast, designers in New York City showed their visions for spring 2014 during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

For those ready to get a jump on next year's styles, here's a primer on the top trends and the best labels of the season. Top trends Sassy skirts: From textured feather numbers in assorted colors to mesh flared skirts from Milly, spring is all about skirts with attitude.

New York Fashion Week kicked off last night with a star-studded bang. Celebs were in full force attending shows and parties in the name of good fashion. It started pretty early -- 5 p.m. to be exact -- at the Joseph Abboud menswear show at the New York Public Library. There,  Kellan Lutz ("Twilight" series), Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, Hunter Parrish ("Weeds"), Daniel Gillies "Vampire Diaries") and Alexander Ludwig ("Hunger Games") provided the star power for the iconic menswear designer.

Oakloom Clothing Inc., a South Baltimore maker of suits, sport coats and trousers sold in men's specialty stores across the country, announced yesterday that it has been bought by Frederick-based Hartz & Co. Terms were not disclosed. Malcolm Katzen, who will keep his position as president of Oakloom, said the sale will enable his company to establish a higher profile in the menswear trade. "Oakloom was not a much-known name," he said. "We did not advertise. With the strength of Hartz & Co.'s marketing, advertising and sales force, we look forward to becoming a recognized high-quality brand name."

I had the perfect plan for my bus ride up to New York City last night. I was going to complete my Christian Siriano profile, maybe watch a couple episodes of the ultra fashionable "Revenge," and get a couple minutes of some much-needed shut-eye. It's never that easy, right? Instead, the power chord to the computer mysteriously died, and so did my access to my story. Luckily I was surrounded by familiar faces to help me pass the time. Karen Garalde, a Baltimore-based designer known for her ability to work with eco-friendly materials, was seated in front of me. And there was Tiarra Plato, a hairstylist who recently moved from Baltimore to New York City where she now works at Jeffrey Stein Salon.

"Stretch for success" should be the motto for a lot of the fashion business today. Look at the way leggings and tights have almost become basic necessities for women from infancy to old age.For example, no one was surprised this fall when the stretchy body suits, tops, skirts, jeans and pants sold out first in Anne Klein Co.'s new A Line sportswear collection.In fact, the presence of a certain amount of stretchability woven into any kind of fabric is so pervasive today that it helps shape fashion from the heights and prices of Paris's Azzedine Alaia and New York's Donna Karan to the lowliest goods sold by a street vendor.

Richard Cohn eyed the back of the grey Canali suit jacket and smoothed the fabric on Frederick Bianco's shoulders. They stood before full-length mirrors joking about Bianco's penchant for having his shirts altered to expose the sleeves just so. Bianco, a customer of Pikesville's J.S. Edwards for 15 years, expects this level of rapport with Cohn, a sales associate, and other employees of the high-end menswear boutique. "I come here for the personal service," said Bianco, who works in film and does voice-overs.

Men's clothier Jos. A. Bank said Monday that it will test out factory outlet stores, which sell goods at lower prices, as it looks for new revenue streams. The Hampstead-based men's retail chain plans to open five stores by the end of the fiscal year. If the stores perform well, the company said it would open more. Company executives believe there might be a market for as many as 50 to 75 factory outlet stores in the U.S. Jos. A. Bank now has seven clearance outlet stores, where it sells items that aren't bought from its full-priced stores.

NEW YORK - Clothes-minded men have plenty to look forward to this fall, judging from the hip and classy collections that menswear designers displayed at Fashion Week. Joseph Abboud dressed his models in gorgeous and slim-fitted four-button suits in such lovely, warm hues as olive green, walnut, heather gray and camel. Kenneth Cole unveiled beautifully cut suede pants and a long coat with fat, luxurious fur lapels. And BCBG Max Azria draped models in a line of jackets and coats with such clean, sleek lines and rich colors that they absolutely were to die for. However, if these designers are beyond your budget, have no fear.

Edward Steinberg's customers talk to him when they come in to his men's clothing shop in Pikesville. They might say, "This sweater is great, but I wish it had a little more room." Or maybe, "I would buy this jacket, but I'm really looking for something with pockets." Until recently, Steinberg, president and owner of J.S. Edwards, could only shrug his shoulders or nod in agreement. Now he can do something about it. This year, Steinberg and a group of 40 other menswear retailers around the country created their own label of men's clothing, made with customers' needs in mind.

THIS FALL, THE BIGGEST FASHION NEWS FOR men should send them straight to the gym. Suits have a narrower silhouette. Dress pants and jeans are slimmer, while jackets are trimmer and shorter. Padding is disappearing, along with that third button on sports coats. "Everybody's in such good shape now, and they want to show it off," says Stephen Watson, fashion director of the high-end magazine Men's Vogue. And what about the government's discouraging figures on obesity? "The bigger guys should keep it simple," he says diplomatically, "and stay away from double-breasted jackets."
