Atwater is about as down-home as any clothing manufacturer can get. The Costa Mesa-based company has a staff of three employees who design, cut and dye the clothes themselves. Still, Atwater products have found their way to Nordstrom, Sun Diego and more than 100 other stores nationwide — and for one month now, they’ll have an entire store to themselves. Or half a store, anyway. Generic Youth, a Westside boutique down the block from Atwater’s headquarters, recently announced a new program in which small clothing manufacturers can move into a space next to its property for a month at a time.

Derek Jaeger doesn't design clothing for shrinking violets. The name of his retail company — Pimpit Empire — is up-front enough, and the logos on his products include pistols, brass knuckles, grenades and other hair-raising images. It's urban clothing to the core, but Jaeger, who operates his company on the Westside, doesn't see it as spreading a negative message. He's into boosting self-esteem, not encouraging violence, and he even interprets his company's name differently than some people would.

ENSENADA, MEXICO - Before lunch began, Commodore Chuck Iverson sat in the back corner of a restaurant, reviewing the guest list. It seemed a generic Newport Beach scene: place settings arranged on white tablecloths. Ocean view. Members of the Newport Ocean Sailing Assn., or NOSA, bedecked in navy blazers and khaki pants, mingling with the mayor. Still, the group hadn't valet parked their cars outside. They'd arrived by van. And they were greeted with glasses of wine, not from California, but vineyards in Mexico.

Every year about this time, when the school session is still young, administrators, parents and students reengage in the age-old battle over what is and isn't appropriate clothing. On school campuses, dress codes are brandished like sacred documents, and principals make declarations to parents and kids alike that they're going to take this business seriously. Moms and dads go to battle over their children's clothes, sometimes failing to notice that they aren't setting a particularly good example themselves.

Preschool teacher Peggy Williams doesn't talk as if she's just had her car stolen. "It's almost gotten to the point that I feel like I don't deserve all the amazing things that are happening to me," the Costa Mesa resident said Thursday. On Tuesday, her 1999 Honda Accord, with more than 200,000 miles on the odometer, was taken out of Lighthouse Community Church's parking lot in Costa Mesa, she said.

If you step into the costume storage room in UC Irvine's Contemporary Arts Center, you may think you've stumbled into the dry cleaners. The room, which became fully operational last spring as part of the building's renovation, stocks nearly 7,000 costumes on a massive ceiling rack. Punch a few digits into a computer at the bottom, and a formal gown, military camouflage or something more outlandish will hum right down. The collection represents years of painstaking craft at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts, which uses its own in-house team to create costumes for drama, music and dance productions.

When 12-year-old Corona del Mar Middle School student Jordan Pratt asked his parents for a trendy new skateboard, he was told that he'd have to work for it, but not by mowing lawns. Jordan could have his skateboard if he helped Diane Pratt, his mother, sell them. "Orange County is such an entrepreneurial breeding ground," said Pratt, owner of Crush Clothing on Balboa Island. "There are so many kids here that have that potential and ability, why not start with my own son?" Jordan selected the merchandise for the first order - an array of popular, brightly colored Penny skateboards - set up shop and waited for customers to roll in. And they did, often asking for Jordan by name and wanting customized specialty boards.
