He would have at least 1 exotic piece, maybe a crocodile belt.

The photos look a lot like the military cemetery in tennessee(chattanooga national)

There is nothing wrong with expressing curiosity about the fate of the wardrobe. It makes for interesting conversation, and I suspect he would have enjoyed reading and participating in such conversation as well. That said, it's inappropriate to express an interest in wanting to be the one to dispose of it, particularly when one is a known re-seller. I think that crosses the line unless it's something like "I would love to resell the wardrobe and give 100% of all proceeds to the family estate."

Rest in peace!

On a side note does anyone know why he has a ton of lyrics on the sidebar?

That Oxxdord camel hair is pretty bad ass. Spoo, let me know when you get your hands on that coat.

I still remember vividly the Wednesday evening in mid-spring 2005, when I stumbled onto Kitonbrioni's blog. A friend and I had a good laugh that day. As others pointed out, the wardrobe was overflowing with clichéd luxury--cashmere, shearling, alligator everywhere. Nothing seemed to fit, it all swamped what seemed to be a frail old man. I periodically checked the blog over the past 6 years, often going through the archives.
I think he enjoyed himself in that blog, which was good...and he made someone else laugh...which was even better.
Actually, 2 weeks ago, I PM'ed another SF member much older here than me, asking about VoxSartoria. His SF membership disappeared...I recently discovered his blog...did he reincarnate in Styleforum?
Voxsartoria's shoe collection, shoe storage rack (or maybe even shoe storage room) gave me the chills. I had read about Imelda Marcos...but seeing Voxsartoria's photos was another experience...
The other thing is Voxsartoria seems to live exactly where I lived when I was in the US, it's eerie to see fit pics taken in places that are so familiar. Who knows how many times our paths may have crossed in real-life...

You mean Louisburg Square, Boston?
It appears that's where Vox resides.

One of his homes is there, at least.

In honor of kitonbrioni I will post the lyrics to Tubthumpin by Chumbawumba:

We'll be singing
When we're winning
We'll be singing
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
Pissing the night away
He drinks a whisky drink
He drinks a vodka drink
He drinks a lager drink
He drinks a cider drink
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the better times
"Oh Danny Boy
Danny Boy..."
I get knocked down
But i get up again
You're never Goin to keep me down
Pissing the night away
He drinks a whisky drink
He drinks a vodka drink
He drinks a lager drink
He drinks a cider drink
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the better times
"Don't cry for me
Next door neighbour..."
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
We'll be singing
When we're wining
We'll be singing

His FAQ at his website above are an entertaining waste of time....just like SF itself.

Based on his photos I just assumed he had his own castle.
