Instead, Blankstyle lines its racks with solid colors and simple patterns — fitting for a shopping center that prides itself on going against the mainstream. “The whole idea here is being able to get something at an affordable price,” manager Jared Fisher said. “At the mall, you spend $80 on a T-shirt that has a little Kenneth Cole logo on it.” This month, the store’s prices are even more affordable than usual.

COSTA MESA — You wouldn't know it immediately, but men's apparel company co-owner Ric Cartwright incorporates metal, water, wood, fire and earth into his soft cotton shirts and hats. That's because FVSTR — pronounced "five star"— pulls from the five elements, which when combined represent a philosophy of balance. "I think that clothing should tell a story," said Cartwright, chief executive of FVSTR. "It can be a conversation starter, and it can tell you a lot about the person who is wearing it. " The Costa Mesa-based company was launched about four years ago when Cartwright noticed a negative trend emerging in mixed martial arts, or MMA. "I've always had this creative edge," Cartwright said.

June Casagrande Its logos have become a symbol of Newport Beach and, in particular, Balboa Island. But now the Balboa Beach Co. clothing store will close the doors to its flagship location on Marine Avenue. "We have chosen, with great regret, to leave our location on Balboa Island," said Jim Roberts, Balboa Beach Co. founder and current president of Pacific Brands Retail Group.

Conroy Robinson, 18, Norland High School, Miami, Fla. Sheila Lorta, 16, Paramount High School, Paramount, Calif. Each shirt on the fence represents a student or teacher who died as a result of school violence -- with some of the locations chillingly close to Orange County.

-- Don Leach The CHOC Walk was the last of four consecutive Sunday community walks I had to cover. I was a bit "walked out," but the CHOC Walk is the best of them all and certainly a good cause. The combination of color, kids and spirit always makes this a fun one to shoot. While shooting, I noticed a large group of people with yellow shirts coming toward me. They were walking in honor of Alex Tobin, a youngster who died in '96 of a lung condition.

I f a bird's eye view photo could be taken of Costa Mesa next week, surely the portion near Costa Mesa High would stand out. Bright colors tend to grab your attention, and in the hypothetical photo, there would be 30 different shades and tones. What's going on there?

The event taking place there, Tuesday through Sunday, is the Daily Pilot Cup soccer tournament.
