Nothing against him or anything, he's cool and all, but there is actually very little content to his posts.
It's because he has forgotten more about shell cordovan than most of us will ever learn.
It's because he loves shoes, perhaps more than any of the rest of us.
It's because he is to our little sartorial sub-interest what Arthur Sackler was to the world of Chinese antiquities.
His presence enriches our community. His absence diminishes it.
That is why everyone is so attached to him.
