Whether you're Democrat or Republican, an Obama supporter or a Romney fan, there's a scarf and mitten set to show your party allegiance.  Just in time for night No. 2 of the Democratic National Convention, the website AlwaysFits.com is launching a line of knitwear items in Republican red (complete with party-appropriate elephant) and Democrat blue (accompanied by a donkey). "In a political season of snarkiness and one-liners, we're thrilled to [offer] a product that allows the politically savvy to share their support without taking a shot at the other side ... whether they tune in to Fox News or the Huffington Post," said AlwaysFits owner Ashley Judge of Massachusetts.

Flanked by giant Carrera marble planters shaped like skulls, designer Paula Thomas stands in the courtyard of the first stand-alone boutique for her upscale global fashion brand, Thomas Wylde. "I love the dark and macabre, but I try to turn that into an aesthetic that is beautiful, alluring and abstract," says the British-born, Los Angeles-based Thomas, whose label merges a streetwise, rock 'n' roll vibe with feminine sophistication. Located next to company headquarters in Culver City, the store opened on Feb. 20, simultaneously celebrating Thomas' 48th birthday and the debut of a made-in-L.A.

Versatility is treasured in travel clothing, and the luscious new 100% silk scarves from Cityzen by Azin are textile jewels. Digitally printed in vibrant hues chosen to represent the dynamic pulse of the places for which they are named (Bangkok, Thailand, London, Los Angeles, Chicago, among them), the expansive scarves can be used as elegant shawls over evening wear; draped, twisted and tied as exotic dresses, skirts or blouses; or wrapped for beach cover-up or bathrobe duty. The scarves come in a 42-by-72-inch rectangle or a 42-inch square.

Since we're not actually across the pond to see the menswear being shown as part of the London Collections: Men's we won't be reviewing them. We will, however, be sharing images (and any details we can gather) if and when something strikes our fancy. Consider our fancy struck with the Burberry Prorsum fall and winter 2014 menswear collection shown Wednesday -- in particular the range of boldly patterned wool/cashmere equestrian-inspired blanket scarves that look hefty enough to insulate against the polar vortex.

Over the last year and a half, a stretch of South La Brea Avenue has become home to a cluster of men's boutiques that are tapping into the vibe of American heritage, military surplus and nostalgia, a vibe that continues to resonate with consumers. The 100 block was already home to Stussy (street wear), Union (sneakers) and American Rag Cie and its World Denim Bar. Now the troika of Feal Mor, General Quarters and Shelter Half, with their rough-hewn wood, brick walls, weathered flags and canvas tents, have made the area a kind of mecca for the manly man and a true "guy's gulch.

When it comes to changes in the weather, Southern Californians are notoriously wimpy. A light drizzle all but stops traffic, and gusty winds can keep us housebound on a Saturday night. So it comes as no surprise that when the temperature dips below 60, we dress as though we're about to scale the north face of Mt. Everest. Frailty aside, our bundling up is really an excuse to accessorize our little hearts out -- with chic cold-weather pieces we so rarely get to break out. So what if we get a little overheated?

To Paper Magazine's co-founder and editor in chief, Kim Hastreiter, it doesn't matter what the economic headlines say -- the need to have that cool thing is timeless, invincible. "People who collect things are nuts. I know because I'm one of those nuts," Hastreiter said. "When I shop, I'm unstoppable." And though our consumerist mojo may be wounded these days, that isn't likely to deter kids decked out in hot-pink paisley neck scarves and iPhones from engaging in the self-consuming, Ouroboros-like quest of trend-following and trendsetting, especially this weekend.

Dressing for the holidays is part of the season's fun. But forget the images you see in fashion magazines and on feel-good television commercials. In Southern California, the weather seldom requires swaddling in a plaid cashmere scarf, chunky fleece-lined boots, nubby cable sweater and peacoat. And we try to be savvy enough to just say no to a tacky Christmas sweater (unless we mean to wear it in an ultra-cool, ironic way). So how in this land of seasonless dressing does one add holiday cheer when the weather outside is far from frightful?

The article "Muslim Schoolgirl Scarves Banned: France in a Furor" (Part A, Nov. 7) points up the importance of freedom of religion as enshrined in our Bills of Rights. It seems incredible that three teen-age Muslim girls in France can so arouse a whole country over so simple an issue as an article of clothing. Certainly no one talks about banning topless bikinis from the French Riviera but somehow Muslim girls modestly wearing head scarves to public school is an emotional issue.

Young athletes in flowing head scarves bob and weave, jabbing the stale air of their darkened training room here at Ghazi National Olympic Stadium. A cracked mirror on the wall reflects the line of female figures in red Puma tracksuits punching, sidestepping and hopping across the worn red and green mats at their coach's command. "Change! Change! Change!" shouts Mohammad Sabir Sharifi. Sharifi, 52, checks his watch: 3:15 p.m. His team of Olympic hopefuls has just started practice, but in only an hour they must be escorted home for their own safety.

On one of the holiest nights of Ramadan, Marwa Atik chose a crowded Southern California mosque to debut her latest creation. It was just after midnight when the 20-year-old walked into the Islamic Center of Irvine, dressed in a long, flowing burgundy robe, her head wrapped in a charcoal-colored chiffon hijab , trimmed with decorative gold zippers. After the group prayers, sermon and Koran recitation, a woman approached Atik, gesturing at the scarf. "OK, I want one," she said excitedly.
