How spectacularly self-conscious and/or vain he must be to post what he did so incessantly.

He was an example, that expensive brands don't make a good outfit. His blog was only about showing off with his expensive clothes, but his outfits didn't look well and fitted bad.

I just found this old SF threak...

KitonBrioni Betting Game:
http://www.styleforum.net/forum/thread/74967/kitonbrioni-betting-game

...including a KitonBrioni wardrobe generator Excel spreadsheet. Although the URL to the .XLS itself appears to have expired. Anyone still got this?

Perhaps it might be better for the endangered species of this world, especially alligators. There wasn't many days when KitonBrioni didn't have at least one item made from alligator, whether it was watch straps, shoes, belts.

Alligators are not one of the world's endangered species..

Most of the hides are farmed...

I recall seeing his clothing fit better before his illness a couple or so years ago. His persistence in posting regardless of the weight loss suggested to me a level of comfort with oneself "in spite of" that was admirable. I would have been too vain and self conscious to post. I know this because of my own experience with drastic weight loss after major surgery a few years back.

Looks like the People's Education Press of Beijing textbook I was reading has incorrect or outdated information.

No , I was thinking American alligators ...

They're the ones being farmed...

The Chinese Gator might be on its way out sadly enough...

So KB will have been wearing American 'gator rather than Chinese 'gator. And my borrowed Chinese school textbook is referring to the Chinese variety.

Most likely...

They're plentyful and offering the cheapest hides...

Being in farms ,their skins are also normally of better quality compared to their wild counterparts...

Crocodile porosus are far more expensive...

Yes, he did. Not much, but I definitely recall advice and suggestions from him, esp. on outerwear/overcoat topics, and if Loro Piana was mentioned.

 

Anyway, as someone else mentioned upthread, I see that his blog lists him as "on sabbatical", so hopefully he's just enjoying a break.

And let's hope he's using at least some of that time to visit an alterations tailor.
