In our first annual Fashion Issue, we look at the multiple personalities of Baltimore's fashion scene, honing in on Towson Town Center, Harbor East, Mt. Vernon, the Bromo Arts district, and Hampden for a glimpse into the way we dress now.

In Mobtown Beat, Van Smith looks into a lawsuit to make the evidence in whistleblower Bradley Manning's court-martial case open to the public and Edward Ericson Jr. details the tax incentives the city gives to millionaire developers.

In City Folk, Bret McCabe profiles Christopher Schafer, a formerly London-based designer of high-end men's fashion.

In the arts, Geoffrey Himes relates the fascinating story of bebop legend Freddie Redd and Bret McCabe reviews Alexy Titarenko's photographs of Venice and Dennis Lee Mitchell's smoke drawings at C. Grimaldis Gallery. Baynard Woods is happy that Selfie at Guest Spot isn't actually a show of seflies, and is thrilled by Mobtown Players' Medea.

Josh Sisk profiles Locrian in music and gives us the scoop on everything happening in heavy music in Bangers and Thrash.

In Eats and Drinks, John Houser III fights against nostalgia on his visit to the Barn, Jenn Ladd drinks at Penn Station, and Martha Thomas dishes on Comings & Goings.

In the columns, Mr. Wrong rails at the interpretation of "per transaction" at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Spitballin' is baffled by Boston's beards, and Charm City Porn Star takes us through a day in the life of a male porn star.
