Spiffy shirts Robert Graham's designs feature bold colors, original patterns, and the embroidered words "knowledge wisdom truth. " Bold colors, embroidered trims, and detailed linings make Robert Graham shirts not just manly, but fun - and so in style. We like the interesting stitching and original patterns. The fit falls between skinny and oversize - that's good, too. But we especially appreciate that "knowledge wisdom truth" is embroidered into every shirt (a little depth never hurt a fashionista)

A second national retail chain yesterday announced it would yank from its shelves a line of T-shirts produced by a Rosemont, Pa., manufacturer that some feminists have complained are insulting to women. A spokeswoman for Footlocker stores said the shirts from Rosemont's AND 1 Co., which sport such slogans as "Your game is still ugly and so is your girl" and "You can't hold me. That's your girl's job," were removed yesterday from the 175 Footlocker stores that stocked them. "If it's content which is objectionable, we'll pull it," said Footlocker spokeswoman Lori Kober.

It's the end of a day at her clothing design studio, and Sarah Van Aken still has work to tend to. Van Aken, the CEO of S.V.A. Holdings, is moving slabs of Sheetrock and pointing out changes she's making to her storefront (formerly known as Echochic) at 17th and Sansom where she'll open her first retail shop in August. "There'll be lattice work on that wall, we'll lose the drop ceiling and create another design space so people can get fitted while shopping for our merchandise," says Van Aken, 36, tugging at her shawl.

A chance encounter in a Toms River convenience store has made radio talk- show host Bob Levy the latest crusader in the war against obscenity. It all began one night in June, when Levy stopped at a neighborhood 7- Eleven on his way home from a restaurant. That's when he saw the shirt on another customer. "This guy was actually walking through 7-Eleven with that shirt on," Levy said the other day, still sounding incredulous. What Levy saw cannot be repeated verbatim in a family newspaper.

Three years ago, it was Anne White who caused a stir when she played at Wimbledon in a white body suit. This year, the long lenses of the British tabloids have been trained on Barbara Potter's jogging bra and customized tennis panties. The situation involving Potter turned from silly to ridiculous yesterday during a Keystone Kops routine on Court No. 6 at the All England Club. Potter had caused a bit of a stir on Monday and Wednesday, when she decided to change her shirt at courtside between sets, although the decision really shouldn't have even raised an eyebrow.

The T-shirt that the NBC-TV crew members tried to have made up here figured to be the last straw. The anti-American sentiment of the local fight fans already was clear a day after the incident last week in which referee Keith Walker got pummeled in the ring. Walker was attacked by a group of South Korean coaches who blamed him for the loss by a Korean fighter assessed a two-point penalty for head butting. The South Korean press, sparked by a feeling that the incident had been a blemish on the nation's honor, was harsh in its criticism of the Korean coaches the following day. Korean citizens and even the local reporters seemed contrite, even apologetic.

CHANCES ARE THERE were more than a few fans at Monday night's Notre Dame-Alabama national championship game wearing a "Catholics vs. Cousins" T-shirt. The shirts, which make fun of the notion that the South is full of inbred hicks, doesn't sit well with Kari Frederickson, the chair of Alabama's history department. "The characterization is tired, inaccurate and playing on stereotypes of ignorance and lack of cultural sophistication," Frederickson told Time's Keeping Score blog.

THE COLORADO Rockies gave out 15,000 Troy Tulowitzki shirts on Saturday night that weren't exactly letter perfect. The shortstop's name was mispelled T-U-L-O-W-I-Z-K-I, so you might say every fan was teed off. The Rockies knew about the gaffe before Saturday but gave out the shirts anyway. Now comes word that the team plans to give away correctly spelled shirts later this season. The team also said fans can exchange the misspelled item and get a free ticket to a game. Good luck with that.

THE FIRST batch of Explorers Basketball Sweet 16 shirts were hung on racks at the La Salle campus store about noon Tuesday. They were gone in less than half an hour. "I have a bigger family," laughed Denise Pruskowski-Kavanagh, an associate nursing professor at La Salle who was clutching nearly a dozen dark-blue graphic T-shirts under her arm. "There are six children; two are graduate students and two are alums. " Boasting seven shirts, Kate Ward-Gaus, a La Salle drug-and-alcohol educator, carried an index card with names and sizes.

It had to happen. The only question is, what's next? A revue called "Ollie's Follies," perhaps. Or an Oliver North look-alike contest. A dance called the Lieutenant-Colonel Shuffle. Signature Ollie pajamas, perfume and party snacks. The Ollie North Show played to packed living rooms last week, and - serious issues of democracy and truth notwithstanding - some people are making a fast buck peddling Ollie kitsch. The Philadelphia T-Shirt Museum has created a sunshine-yellow shirt with red letters proclaiming, "Ollie North is a stand up guy - he makes me proud to be an American.
