I will be hanging around Styleforum for the forseeable future, but my post counts are on a steady decline and that is purely a reflection that I have other activities distracting me at the moment.
I have stayed quiet on the Frenchy front - I did not know the fellow very well and had little time to form a feeling of dislike or friendship towards him. He certainly appeared to be quite the character, although whether this was really him or an alter ego behind the sanctuary of a keyboard I do not know.
I did not catch his so called comments deriding anything Jewish, so cannot give an opinion on what was written. With people nowadays joining the PC brigade, I would imagine that what he wrote was blown out of proportion. Enlighten me please what was written by Frenchy / Valium that caused this furor so I can understand more where this ban came from (i.e. deserved ban due to unjust bullying / harassment or undeserved due to him just pissing off some thin skinned bigwigs around here).
From the moderator perspective, there is no such thing as an all inclusive policy invoking the totality of free speech. This site could theoretically be shut down if certain topics come up - all it would take are one or two pro-terrorist supporters here to throw Styleforum in chaos and subject to FBI investigation. Same would happen if certain members came out pro-pedophilia in the name of free speech. Free speech is conditioned I presume on the laws of the land, and if racism or racist activity are deemed a serious violation of human rights, then so called free speech in support of this activity would surely be deemed subject to moderation and ban worthy.
Attorneys / lawyer members here, please enlighten me if I am way off base smile.gif

I came out with what could be the most wearable piece of Robert Graham I've ever seen. Tan, completely unstructured, un-padded, summer blazer. patch pockets, 4 button working surgeon cuffs, single vented. Even the lining is pretty cool, and a touch of Thom Browne on the sleeves. Size XL, Mexicutioner, I'm looking at you.

Sweet Jacket Eazy, I got a couple RG shirts that would look sweet with.  If no one else takes it, let me know

also: that RG is pretty awesome, if the label said ETRO instead of ROBERT GRAHAM, everyone would be all over it. pm me the measurements! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

10000% fake. But, some of the better fakes that I have seen.

Size is marked 40 but fits more like a 38, so I'm keeping for now. No maker tag at all. I've included pics of all the tags and any help in identifying this would be greatly appreciated.

Will. reap. hundreds. Well done.

^^^ I spent the better part of the afternoon drinking with a friend of mine who is visiting from Germany AND THIS IS WHAT I HAVE TO COME HOME TO!?!  I literally kicked my desk when I saw the tags and realized the maker.  And It's my size, too!  worship.gif

I'm keeping for now, but........stirpot.gif P.s, is that Versace shirt real? Worth the 90 cents I paid for it? I've only seen a handful of his stuff and it's always been jacked up in price.

Yeah, thats a great coat. You should keep it, if you don't have one like it. Im sure it weighs a ton. Otherwise, ^ dude up there will be more than happy to take it off your hands laugh.gif

GV shirt is real, Id give it 30 ebay bucks at best.

Nataku, eazye, Jpmorris—sweet finds! The Purple Label suit, the Brioni overcoat, and all those T&A shirts are especially awesome.

According to the thread eddievddr10 posted, Frenchy was only banned through May of this year. Did he do something to extend the ban?
