What I do recall is what I posted above. He was the Dennis Miller of this board. In so much hurry to demonstrate his hilarious wit and self perceived intelligence any value in what he had to say was lost. Whenever I saw him contribute to a thread it almost always caused me to groan inwardly and very rarely offered anything germane to the point being discussed. I have to wonder if before my time he was some kind of maven who drowned in jealousy once a significant chunk of igents found their way to this board and were able to approach and even eclipse his own level. Now I do miss lufty and his vintage choices, and haven't seen many of TC's classy cuts lately.
Vox used to be a prolific poster, and there were several outstanding pictures of his outfits and style. Unfortunately, just before F. Corbera made an appearance, he pretty much took down all his pictures. I believe Steed's image gallery
still contains some of his pictures (the ones with his face masked out). Say what you will, the man had keen wit and his intelligence was anything but "perceived". I particularly miss those posts when the likes of Vox would expound upon interesting trivia or adventures, sartorial or otherwise, accompanied by photographs (the Swiss Army Suit or the anatomy of the 7 fold tie come to mind). Moreover, Vox had some wonderful insights into certain places and times in our society (the gilded age comes to mind) that was very educational. It was far from hero worship -- it was admiration, plain and simple, of a well dressed and well rounded man with the intellectual prowess to match. It's not often that one stumbles upon such. At least not on these boards.
