GET MOORE: A broad swath of New York’s men’s wear world packed onto Barneys New York’s third floor on Thursday night to toast Jim Moore, GQ’s longtime creative director.

Two of Barneys’ Madison Avenue windows were dedicated to Moore, this year’s recipient of the CFDA’s Eleanor Lambert award.

The displays were wallpapered with GQ covers and carpeted with handwritten thank-you notes from designers. “You don’t need it for sure,” read one cryptic note, signed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.

“We backed up a truck of stuff, basically, and Simon [Doonan] had to say, ‘You know, it’s two windows,’” said Moore, who received congratulations from designers, editors, models and publicists.

Designers Richard Chai, Calvin Klein’s Italo Zucchelli, Thom Browne, Tim Hamilton, Phillip Lim, Rag & Bone’s David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos and Swaim Hutson each had a moment with the man of the hour, as did Ben Gordon of the Chicago Bulls and Penn Badgley of “Gossip Girl,” who wore Gucci.

Badgley said he was heading to Los Angeles to rehearse a new project, but grew uncomfortable before declining to elaborate.
