When Jerry Cohn realized his wardrobe would not be complete without a pair of denim boots, he did not think twice about where to go--he took his unusual request to his designer of the last 10 years, Manuel. "It was my idea," said Cohn, who manages the careers of such stars as Barbara Stanwyck, Cesar Romero and Rose Marie. "I said, 'I've got a great idea . . . How about making me a pair of denim boots?' But he'd already thought of it on his own. He pulled out a pair and said, 'You mean like these?

Josh Hopkins plays Grayson Ellis opposite Courteney Cox's Jules Cobb on ABC's "Cougar Town," and their on-screen chemistry is worth watching. "I guess I have what you might call a contentious relationship with Jules," said Hopkins. "Grayson is sort of the neighbor who pushes her buttons, and she pushes his right back. But there's definitely an underlying attraction too." You can also catch Josh on Saturday night in Lifetime's holiday movie "12 Men of Christmas" starring Kristin Chenoweth.

In the Hollywood of the '50s, Sy Devore was the clothier to the stars. John Wayne, Count Basie, Rock Hudson and Elvis were a few of the regulars. Devore's was so well known that Bob Hope made the store the brunt of a joke in the late '50s: "In a very good year I have my choice between a Rolls-Royce, a new house in Beverly Hills or a suit from Sy Devore." Sy and his brother Al opened the original store on the corner of Vine and Sunset in 1944.

A vintage poster of the Rat Pack--Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop--hangs at the Sy Devore store in Studio City. The debonair babe magnets are dressed in hip threads that made them the Mack Daddies of 1960s cool: sharkskin suits, skinny ties and tailored dress shirts. To look at the guys, you'd think they were decked out in the spare contemporary silhouettes of Prada. The fabrics are fine, the fit immaculate, details noteworthy.

A women's apparel shop on the Westside is just the place for the ensemble look so perfect for California weather. Many of the labels at Taberico are familiar, such as Albert Nipon, Nicole Miller and Oleg Cassini, but there are also several lesser-known names, such as Micha from Denmark and Caroline Jerari from Italy. The Danish products are knits. One three-piece group of pants and a sweater set that retailed for as much as $450 was tagged at $149. There are knits from Italy, as well.

T-SHIRT COLLECTORS' ALERT: The last time it was possible to even think about buying something for $18 designed by artist Peter Shire was back in the mid-'70s. That's when then-undiscovered Shire was selling ceramic mugs, soap dishes and teapots from his funky Echo Park studio. Today, one of Shire's outrageous teapots will set you back some equally outrageous bucks: $2,000 to $6,000 at one of the trendier galleries throughout the world.

American menswear designers are joining their women's wear counterparts in unveiling less-expensive secondary collections that many Southern California stores will be banking on for fall. A stagnant economy and desire to appeal to a broader audience are motivating the move. Some of the biggest names in menswear--Andrew Fezza, Jhane Barnes, Joseph Abboud--are part of the trend.

Bob Levey beamed with pride one recent Saturday, watching attentively as his young son was fitted for a suit by the able staff at Mel Fox Clothiers in Encino. Levey remembers, quite clearly, when he brought his other son, Brian, in to buy a suit for his bar mitzvah. Now that son is 31 and could probably, pick out his own clothing sans chaperon. But that's not the point.
