I agree with this.

I thought KB was awesome. I wouldn't choose all of his clothes but I sure as hell would wear some of it if I could afford it.

I do not think it is inappropriate to ask through the blog and wait for a response. Especially because someone has updated it recently. It's not like you are hounding them on the phone. Whomever is updating the blog can respond in their time, or choose not to do so. No big deal

All these "dibs" posts though, are pretty bizarre and crass. I hope his family never sees them.

J'ai la memoire qui flanche could be the motto of many Sfers ready to hate or praise with any rational thinking behind it..

I don't remember having an argument or a disagreement with him...

His sartorial choices were at least surprising sometimes but he was a nice person.

RIP KB. A real one of a kind gentleman.

On the estate note, would it be crass Spoo, if I asked for you to leave me your wardrobe in your will? I assume your daughter won't want much of it, and I know we are a similar size...if the wardrobe thing doesn't work out, how about your autos? Won't touch the Mrs though, promise.

I didn't get what KB was about for a long time, just kept on seeing his daily lists of designer lux names in WAYWT, both here and on AAAC.

Until I started using proxy, I couldn't view any Blogger sites, such as KB's.

I even asked a question about KB's posts on AAAC's WAYWT thread in June 2010.

I posted at the time in the AAAC thread.
"I have done so several times, it just goes to a Chinese search page."... but since then I've been using a proxy.

You definitely aren't the only one. R.I.P to a true legend.

You really have to respect how varied his collection of clothing was. Cool jeans, sweaters, great cowboy boots, suits, sport coats, shoes and outer wear. A man of his apparent age that dressed that fearlessly has to be admired. He will be missed.

Firstly, my condolences to KB's family... and fans.

There's been some criticism of a few posts in this thread re the future of his wardrobe. If he wasn't KitonBrioni and didn't daily post his outfits for years I think the criticism would be warranted, but that's not the case, is it? Clearly the guy loved "What are you wearing today?" Here. And at AAAC. And on his own blog. Who knows where else? He appreciated his clothing. He liked dressing well, posing, and posting. He enjoyed answering questions about his clothes. I'm sure there were other facets to the man, things we never knew or saw; we just knew him as KitonBrioni, the guy with the clothes, and that's how he wanted it. I bet it gutted him when he had to stop posting. Whilst I don't know the man, I think he'd like knowing that others like his stuff too.

You are correct. I wasted another hour now reading the "interview" Kitonbrioni gave (did he interview himself). I am convinced Kitonbrioni was a Jehovah's Witness...anywho, here is Kitonbrioni on his wardrobe:


Q: Isn't this whole blog just a pathetic, embarrassing joke, or are you just insane?

A: [Quoteth he the Good Book:]
"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

If this is not Kitonbrioni himself inviting a feeding frenzy on his wardrobe after he is gone earth to earth and ashes to ashes, I don't know what is...He rummaged far and wide, scavenging second hand shit older than the second crusade...it is only fitting his wardrobe be re-scattered to buyers in the four corners of the earth...

Spoopoker, know that you have his blessing.

Why haven't you been updating your blog?

Thanks for asking. If the Lord's willing and the creek don't rise, I'll try to get back to posting again on a regular basis.
