To celebrate the release of David Bowie's new album, “The Next Day,” Paul Smith has collaborated with the rocker on a T-shirt available as of today. The organic cotton T-shirt, printed with Jonathan Barnbrook's black-and-white album cover artwork with the words "Paul Smith for David Bowie" scribbled just below it, will certainly be a cool addition to any Bowie fan's closet. But what really interests us is the prospect of additional collaborative pieces. According to the press materials accompanying the T-shirt announcement, Smith and Bowie are longtime friends, and the British fashion designer is quoted as saying there's more to come.

Just One Eye is more than meets the ... well never mind, no cliche could do it justice. Part luxury boutique, part art gallery, part bricks-and-mortar manifestation of a digital storefront, it stocks the cream of the eclectic crop - including $65 GoFast Inc. T-shirts and $46,400 Jitrois mink hoodies, a century-old Carlo Bugatti throne chair and brand new Blackman Cruz beanbag chairs (each priced well north of $20,000). Uber-luxe destination retail is certainly not a new concept in the City of Angels.

The way Wynand Mullins tells it, a flight attendant at Qantas Airways failed to see the humor in what was written on his T-shirt. "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die," read the quote from the 1987 cult film "The Princess Bride. " (A quick Google search turned up several versions of the T-shirt with this quote.) Mullins told the New Zealand news website stuff.co.nz that he was asked to change his shirt on the flight from Sydney to Auckland on Jan. 20. "The flight attendant said to me: 'Are you able to remove it because some of the passengers are quite intimidated by it,' " Mullins said in the story.

I pride myself on my instincts. I can tell my roommate is avoiding her chores by her walk. My predictions of early television cancellations are always on the money. My personal mantra is "I know," and when I'm sure, I'm sure. After my first date with Greg, I know that I've met the right person. I arrive early at the Dresden in Los Feliz and sit in my car watching the clock. I'm wearing my first-date outfit; everything is the same each time, down to my jewelry, undergarments and bobby pins.

Ray Lewis, one of the most feared men in the NFL for the better part of two decades, gave us a Bible lesson Sunday -- Psalm 91 in particular -- following his final home game as a member of the Baltimore Ravens. After the 24-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the wild-card round of the NFL playoffs, the soon-to-be-retired linebacker took off his jersey and pads to reveal a black sleeveless T-shirt with "Psalms 91" printed in small, gold print on front. The shirt received plenty of exposure as Lewis took a victory lap around M&T Stadium, surely sending many to their Bibles or computers to learn exactly just what message the two-time defensive player of the year was trying to convey.

A factory fire last month in which 112 Bangladeshi garment workers died raised questions not only about how a manufacturer with a poor safety record was allowed to continue its dangerous ways, but also about the responsibility of American companies to the workers they rely on around the globe. At the time of the fire, Tazreen Fashions Ltd. was manufacturing clothes for well-known brands and retailers in the United States, including Disney, Sears, Wal-Mart and Enyce, as well as a licensee of the U.S. Marine Corps.
