TUCKER CARLSON’S CROWD: There’s something arresting about a room full of men in bow ties, like a flock of a tropical birds alighting on Central Park: it’s beautiful but otherworldly. Wednesday evening provided unparalleled viewing when socialites and fashion editors swanned around the Brooks Brothers flagship in Manhattan to toast the retailer’s bow tie collaboration with etiquette blogger K. Cooper Ray. The blogger and bow-tie champion Ray set the tone in red go-to-hell pants and one of his own reversible ties. Guests, including Sam Peabody, Emma Snowdon-Jones, Phillip Bloch, Lucy Sykes and Euan Rellie, Bobby Kennedy Jr. and Paul Sevigny, followed his natty lead. Even Paper editor Mickey Boardman tweaked his polo-and-necklace uniform a bit, gamely holding a photo of a bow tie at his neck for a few photos. When you can’t beat them, pretend to join them.
