Have you ever seen one of those DON T-shirts? Now you can meet the man behind the label this weekend in the Hamptons.

His name isn't Don, but PJ Monte, whose passion for fashion, art and all things current inspired the DON New York collection.

Monte, along with James Cruickshank from a similar clothing line known as Lola, is hosting an event at 10 p.m. Saturday at the Barracuda Bar at the Montauk Yacht Club (32 Star Island Rd., Montauk, 631-668-3100).

The line, in its third year, includes shirts saying “Life of a Don” ($25 at and “The Family,” cardigan and hats for men, mostly, but there are some pieces for women as well. Items range from $20 to $75.

DJ Harley Viera-Newton and her DJ partner Cassie Coane will be spinning the beats throughout the night. Both have been featured in Nylon Magazine.

DJ Samantha Ronson, Lindsay Lohan's ex, has been seen wearing DON clothing.
