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.

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.

It's all about respect, according to Amir Miller, who pulled his business out of Cherry Hill Mall last month after he was told to stop selling T-shirts calling for an end to police brutality. Since then, Miller has received a corporate apology. He was invited to bring his business, Teary Eyez, back to the mall to sell a variety of T-shirts again, including the ones that raised the controversy. He also is planning to open a shop in Newport News, Va., where the same corporation owns another mall, Miller said.

The T-shirt election on the Jersey Shore boardwalks is indicating a clear winner - Donald Trump. Or maybe, as Arie Naccache said as he stood outside his Wildwood shop, people just "like the jokey ones. " For whatever reason, visitors at the Shore are snapping up shirts with pro-Trump themes more frequently than those backing the Republican presidential candidate's expected Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. And, yes, there's a wide variety of shirts with Trump's trademark slogan, "Make America Great Again.

The Teary Eyez kiosk at Cherry Hill Mall stood empty Thursday, days after its owner was told by mall management that he could not sell T-shirts with a slogan protesting police violence. Management on Tuesday told Amir Miller, 30, that the shirt, which read "THIS HAS TO STOP" above an image of two police officers attacking a figure cowering on the ground, was "controversial" and needed to be removed. The mall was not open to negotiating, he said, and forced him to take down the shirts immediately.

Amir Miller said he had no problems selling T-shirts at a kiosk in the Cherry Hill Mall for the past year and a half. Then he recently offered a shirt that reads "THIS HAS TO STOP" and depicts the silhouettes of two police officers attacking a person cowering on the ground.

These bright button-downs are bringing a barrage of multicolored style this summer to the otherwise drab world of summertime khakis. The trendlet Aloha - also called Hawaiian - shirts are the epitome of this summer's fancy florals in menswear. But the 2016 version is more fitted and meant to be worn with skinnier jeans and tapered khakis. Where does it come from? Back in the 1920s, Hawaiian tailors started making bright, floral-print button-downs for tourists eager to take a bit of the island's tropical flavors back home.

A dozen pairs of skinny trousers and jeans breathe easily next to a handful of tailored blazers in a compact closet tucked in Aubrie Costello's tiny bedroom. About 20 shirts - a few graphic T-shirts, crisp button-downs, and Costello's signature cropped tops - also are part of the mix. Lining the windowsill overlooking a narrow part of South Sixth Street are pretty vintage mugs where Costello keeps the jewelry she wears every day. Even her collection of statement shoes - she fancies color-blocked oxfords and stacked heels - is modest and orderly.

JUST CALL HIM the Man of Steal. The fashion choices of one super-dumb criminal may have been his kryptonite, according to Upper Darby police, who said they captured a burglary suspect this week thanks to the man's penchant for wearing a Superman shirt while committing his crimes. Kyree Henneghan, 18, of West Philly, was charged with two counts of burglary and related offenses for the break-ins that occurred this week and last, said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.

Ken Giles arrived at spring training in February with his own custom T-shirt. The red sleeveless shirt had "I'm all Fired Up" printed on the front and the Phillies reliever's nickname, "100 Miles Giles" screened on the back. Everyone wanted one, Giles said. His teammates had to wait. Giles purchased a box of the shirts and brought them to the Phillies' clubhouse last week after a nine-game road trip. "I'll tell you one thing, they were like kids in a candy store," Giles said.
