The Houston weather right now might be more conducive to swimsuits than business suits, but Rudy and Debbie Festari are so excited about a new lower-priced collection that they hosted a "Summer Suit Soiree" Wednesday night at their BLVD Place store to show off the new men's clothing line.

A large crowd of social swells showed up at Festari for Men to preview the Italian-made suits, which feature a slim fit, narrower lapels and special linings aimed at the budget-conscious younger man. The suits are priced from $398 to $598 and sizes range from 36 short to 52 long.

The ladies had an opportunity to shop, too, as women's clothing designer Jonathan Tinkle showed selections from his Jonathan Blake collection and Kym Jackson presented her Urban Rocks jewelry line. Tinkle is jetting to Aspen to showcase the collection at the summer home of Vivian Wise next week.

Guests enjoyed light bites from adjacent restaurant Table on Post Oak while they perused the merchandise.

Joining in the fun were Jo and Jim Furr, Grayland Noah and Greg Killam, Dominque Sachse and Nick Florescu, Dr. Andy and Tammie Johnson, James and Nicole Lassiter, Yvette Gallucci and Dwaine Hooten, Becky Davis and Mark Stanridge, John PastaValentino Festari,  Dr. Romy Morello, Beth Muecke and Scott Evans.
