An Irvine-based company is threatening to sue a Riverside County school district over its ban on a clothing line inspired by a local stunt dirt bike team and adorned with logos resembling Nazi insignia. The Metal Mulisha Riders from Temecula ? known for their irreverent attitudes, gravity-defying stunts and tattoos ? have many fans among motocross-loving teenagers. But critics say the clothes they wear include Nazi-style helmets and a lightning bolt "S" similar to those worn by Nazi military forces.

Eco-conscious and sustainably produced clothing has long been associated with murky-colored, burlap-reminiscent items focused more on sending an Earth-friendly message than on looking runway-ready. So as Earth Day approaches on Tuesday, it's good to know there are now some chic, sustainable options. From sourcing fabrics to creating hangtags, each of the brands highlighted here considers impact on the Earth in production choices and uses recycled materials as often as possible - in some cases, building an entire line on repurposed materials.

El Nino forecasts may have Southern Californians pulling out their rain boots and slickers between dips in the backyard pool, but outside Palm Paradise, many families are noticing the familiar chill that signals winter's imminence. Temperate or not, the change in season also means warmer clothes. Children will dump last year's models--which, simply by hanging in a closet or lying in a drawer--have become three sizes too small.

Sunscreen? Check. Sunglasses? Check. Hat? Check. Think that's enough to stave off harmful rays? Not necessarily, say the makers of sun protective clothing, a growing category of sportswear for the UV-wary. Marketed under such names as Solumbra, SunSkins and Shades, the specially fabricated garments reportedly block out most of the rays linked to skin cancer.

From simple knit and purl to fancy shell and loop stitches, some 35 women throughout the city transform balls of yarn each day into baby clothes, bootees, bonnets, blankets, bibs, diaper covers and children's sweaters. The women, all members of the Needlework Guild of America's Fullerton chapter, waste no time in their quest to make beautiful garments for the poor. In all, the 44-year-old group has 382 members--most of whom donate yarn and money for the cause.

A POLITICAL convention is not really the place to find people serious about fashion, at least not judging by the preponderance of T-shirts and goofy campaign regalia on display last week on the opening night of the Democrats' quadrennial shindig in Denver. And anyway, for sheer fashion cool, who on Earth is going to try to trump Sen. Barack Obama and his fashion-mad wife, Michelle? Still, among the throngs jostling through the Pepsi Center, it was possible to find some folks who put some thought into their attire.
