New Yorkers may be known for seeking out what’s new and what’s next, but there’s a small, vocal group that prefers to slow down and look back. Two Sundays ago, Bowties and Crumpets, an event put on by Big Apple Tweed, transformed the Park Slope restaurant Flatbush Farm into a scene straight out of another era. Guests tapped their feet and danced as Dandy Wellington and His Band played standards and lesser-known tunes from the 1920s and ’30s. Tea and crumpets were served. Judges selected the Most Tweed Spirited Lass and Lad, Best Accessory, Most Distinguished Chap, Most Ravishing Lass, Most Breathtaking Accessory, Uniquely New York and even Tweed Baby. Donations from the event (a $20 door charge, raffle tickets) went to help school children in the tornado-ravaged areas of Oklahoma.

President Bill Clinton repeatedly asked the Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe the name of his tailor. Seduced by the pair of scissors that transformed a piece of cloth into a chic suit, he wanted the couturier’s address. Both men participated in the 6th Gala Clinton Global Initiative, the most prestigious event of the week. Lamothe replied proudly that his tailors were Ronald Delice and Rony Delice, Haitian designers based in New York. Carlos Slim Helú, the richest man in the world, Luis A. Moreno, President of the Interamerican Development Bank, Denis O’Brien, president and founder of Digicel, Pepe Julian Onziema, program director for defense of sexual minorities in Uganda, the Rev. Christopher Senyonjo, executive director of a center reconciliation, and Katie Stagliano, founder and director of an organization that works in agriculture, each received an award in front of a nice group of guests, a mixture of stars in politics, philanthropy, thinking, media and showbiz.
Throughout the day on Tuesday, the Prime Minister, in another suit by Ron-n-Ron designed by Ronald and Rony Delice, told reporters about his evening with President Clinton.
