Rain slicked the streets of La Jolla, but the crowd inside The Ascot Shop was more concerned with whether bow ties or neckties would triumph as the men’s store and Riviera hosted a fall fashion preview.

Bucking tradition, pink Cosmos and a DJ helped transform the heritage boutique into a swank lounge scene where Bird Rock resto The Promiscuous Fork doled out lamb lollipops and pulled pork quesadillas. Man up! –Photography by Tim Hardy,
