UPPER EAST SIDE— If you're in the market for an excruciatingly expensive and perfectly constructed suit in either a young or classic cut, Mike Cohen, CEO of Oxxford Clothes, will be at Barneys today and tomorrow for a trunk show, and ready-to-wear and bespoke suits will abound. If you're in the market for made-to-measure, call ahead to make a fitting appointment. [Barneys]

GREENPOINT—Per an email: "Oak is holding a bi-weekly party to showcase the DJ skills of our friends in fashion." The event kicks off tonight at Blackout (916 Manhattan Avenue) at 10pm; until 11, well drinks are only $3. [Racked Inbox]

ONLINE—Alexander Wang just brought back a bunch of rare and elusive T by Alexander Wang tops in an online exclusive. Reports Elle: "In a genius move, Wang is offering exclusive styles and fabrications, and impossible-to-find pieces sold out elsewhere on his site. Below, a burnout muscle tee, tank, and T-shirt which are exclusive to the site (and all are under $79)." As far as we can tell, "under $79" translates to "$76," but nobody ever bought an Alexander Wang t-shirt because it was a great bargain. Click through to see the shirts they're talking about. [Elle]
