We've found two universal truths about menswear: First, it's all about the details, and second, when it comes to the traditional four-in-hand necktie, there are precious few ways to alter those details without looking like an idiot, a peacock or worse. So we were happy to discover a delightfully simple -- and subtle (almost to the point of stealth) -- design that strikes the perfect balance: Eric Glennie's "congruent" necktie.

Leah Padow knows from identity theft. She recently had five accounts at three banks compromised. The fraud occurred in mid-November, so it was apparently unrelated to the digital break-in at Target, which began after Thanksgiving and resulted in the card numbers and personal information of up to 110 million customers being accessed by hackers. And it was apparently unrelated to the hack attack on Neiman Marcus, which began last summer and resulted in at least 1.1 million customers' card numbers being jeopardized.

LA JOLLA - Like many on the PGA Tour's traveling road show, Scott Stallings is mostly a name in the small print. That should change now, at least for a while. When he won the Farmers Insurance Open on Sunday at Torrey Pines, it gave his career both a tangible and intangible boost. The tangibles are easy. First place was worth $1.098 million. Also a spot in the Masters. That means he can return to Augusta National, to the spot on No. 18 where he can revisit an incredible Tiger Woods drive.

From Gene Davis in the 1960s to Tim Bavington in the 2000s, stripes have been a resilient format for abstract paintings. That's surprising, given the seemingly limited range of possibilities of parallel straight lines on a canvas. Now, add Brian Wills to the list of inventive practitioners. The most satisfying of a dozen recent works at Nye + Brown are five striped works on flat, square wood panels. (The others are more sculptural, including shallow boxes, wedges and cubes.) Wills alternates stripes of textured enamel paint in various widths and colors with stripes made from dense rows of single-strand rayon thread stretched taut across the surface.

When Dick Zanuck and I had lunch last month, it would've been impossible to imagine that the veteran producer would be gone six weeks later. Zanuck, who was 77 when he died Friday at his home in Beverly Hills, looked at least a decade younger and had the energy of an Olympic marathoner. Long before everyone in showbiz became a fitness nut, Zanuck was doing serious workouts, lifting weights, taking long jogs and, in his later years, swimming laps. Zanuck wasn't especially vain. He wanted to be in good shape because it gave him more energy for his work, and for him work was life.

In gorgeously striped Panachee figs, which are being harvested commercially for the first time this month, the beauty is more than skin deep. Ripe specimens have super-sweet, jam-like pulp, with a counterbalancing acidity uncommon in other varieties and an intense berry flavor. The spotlight on Panachée has been a long time coming. The variety was first described by that name, which means "variegated," in France in 1826, but similar types were noted as far back as the 17th century.

Easy to wear, and downright sexy when they hug the body, stripes are one of spring's strongest looks, showing up in virtually every collection here and abroad. Part of the appeal of stripes is the season's nautical bent--expect to see blue and white stripes of all kinds in Ralph Lauren's new America's Cup collection. Other top names taking a fancy to stripes include Donna Karan in New York and Valentino in Paris, both of whom promise dresses with shapely curves.

Black-AND-WHITE cotton mattress ticking and gray flannel pinstripe is set to be the next big trend in upholstery. Vertically striped window and wall coverings, which add height to a room, will always feel right at home. But the start of backyard and beach season, not to mention the prospect of rainbow-flag-waving gay pride days, calls for stripes of a different color.

On a plane to South Africa, I sat next to a man going to hunt big game. I told him we had a lot in common. We were both going to hunt with a guide, patiently try to get close to our targets, feel our adrenaline pump as we took our best shots. We both would bring home trophies. The only difference? His would be the head of a murdered animal and my photographer's trophy would be a framed, two-dimensional print of a living animal. Our fellow passengers applauded. Helen K. Garber Venice

Forget the jolly fat man in the red suit. In Belfast, Northern Ireland's capital, kids and adults flock to see the Black Santa. Come rain or shine (or snow), the man known as Black Santa sits on the steps of Belfast Cathedral, the Cathedral Church of St Anne from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. from Dec. 17 to Christmas Eve. He's not there to give away gifts but to collect for about 150 local charities.    This Santa derives his name from the Anglican clerical cloak (or cowl) that the dean of the cathedral wears.

From bateau-style T-shirts, to Marc Jacobs' spring 2012 graphic Mod black-and-white runway extravaganza and beyond, stripes are the fashion trend that just won't end. They've been hot on the streets and at retail for going on four years now. But whereas most celebs would have shied away from wearing potentially unflattering lines on the red carpet, that's not the case now. Tuesday night at a screening of “American Hustle” in Los Angeles,...

A jaunty striped jacket worn by Dick Van Dyke's Bert the chimney sweep character in Disney's 1964 multiple-Oscar-winning musical "Mary Poppins" is up for bid in a quick two-day online auction, the Nate D. Sanders auction house announced Tuesday. The jacket (or versions of it - it's worth noting that costume designers routinely create multiples of each garment - it was even that way with Dorothy's ruby slippers from "The Wizard of Oz") is worn by Van Dyke's character in the memorable live action/animation scene in which his character Bert sings "Jolly Holiday" and dances it out with a passel of penguins.

It's not very often that the ACLU gets love from the religious right, but after a Tennessee judge took it upon herself to rename a 7-month-old boy because she found his name offensive to Christians, the civil liberties group, which had strenuously objected, found some new friends. "I got the classic call the other day," said Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU of Tennessee, who called the judge's action "totally unacceptable. " "They said, 'I really don't like the ACLU, but I support what you are saying and doing about the baby Messiah.

The two women of Deap Vally are really bummed out by the idea of a walk of shame. You know, the ritualistic morning skulk back home after hooking up with someone you probably won't call again. They're not torn up about the hookup part, though. It's the shame that seems dumb. "We always knew we wanted to write about that idea of a 'Walk of Shame,'" said drummer and co-vocalist Julie Edwards. "It always bugged me, that there's this neurosis that just turns on in your head afterwards.

Coaches want their teams to bond, and a popular strategy is to take the players on a trip, put them together in a hotel room in Las Vegas or Hawaii and see what happens. Then there's the approach of the Arcadia High baseball team. They called in the Marines. The players were driven in January on the 5 Freeway to San Onofre within the borders of Camp Pendleton and dropped off at a state park just before sundown.

The amazing Cincinnati Bengals have staged last-minute comebacks in each of their last three games. So it's only fitting that one of their leaders is the potential comeback player of the year. Then again, it's not as if running back Cedric Benson is "coming back" to his old self. As an NFL player, he has never been as good as he is now. Benson, cut by Chicago in 2008, leads the NFL in rushing with 487 yards in 111 carries and three touchdowns. He rushed for 141 yards at Green Bay, and last Sunday became the first running back in 40 games to run for 100 yards against Baltimore, gaining 120 in 27 carries.

Enceladus, the icy moon that circles Saturn and shoots out jets of water, emits a much larger amount of water at the farthest point in its orbit, according to a new study published in the journal Nature. The discovery backs up a years-old theory and provides the researchers with fresh insight into this geophysically intriguing body. Enceladus, named after one of the giant children of mother Earth in Greek mythology, has long intrigued planetary scientists (as well as astrobiologists wondering if primitive life could exist in extreme environments)
