    It looks like FNB deleted the threads about Kabbaz/AAAC. See Vaclav's thread ``A question."

    Really? I haven't been back there for a few days, since I started getting into it with a couple of them for some very strange attacks on Kabbaz. If this is the case, the the site may well have hope of credibility yet.

    I really don't mean to start (or continue) any bashing here, but here goes: although I thought FNB could be caustic at times, he did seem to know a lot about both style and tailoring. I was hoping that his site would be a complement to SF and AAAC, a place where I could pick up cool sartorial odds and ends. It quickly became ihateaskandy dot com, much to my chagrin. However, if FNB has purged the site of such blatant, bitter ax-grinding, then it's possible it will become something much better. Hey, I'm a dreamer.

    I think the FNB site is a total hoot. While I never liked FNB, I did find amusement in his conceitedness. At least if he kept it to two paragraphs or less, otherwise I would skip his posts.

    We should warn Janne though, that he who must not be named seems interested in his services.

    That's a strange dream.

    Perhaps this woman will help. To be a part of the Trad Posse I think she might consider it. Her pedigree is good: http://www.nbc.com/Video/videos/snl_...alieraps.shtml The Rhythm, The Rebel, H.
    She talks like a Trad, but her rhymes, they are wicked.

    Thanks for the plug, baby. You left out my arrogance and repartee. Im not likely to keep it to two paras anytime soon...not even for you, Fritz.

    Wow. I hadn't stopped by before, but FNB, Grayson, The_Shooman, Beaman--it's like a SF/AAAC comedy skit. I wonder if Ernest knows about it.

    Well his threads on AAAC were enjoyable, yeah. But bumping your own threads despite warnings from moderators is a pathetic grasp for attention.

    I enjoyed them for what they had: pictures of suits. But FNB really isn't the icon of style he makes himself out to be. No one here, at AAAC, or at the LL takes that sort of self-aggrandizing position, and it becomes all the more hilarious when you start examining the cut of his suits: they look like RTW.

    ... And so the talent agent says, "My God, man... what the hell do you call an act like that?"

    And FNB exclaims, "The Aristocrats!"



    Ah, I got nothin'. Carry on, everyone.

    I just noticed that Nick adjusts his tie. Now I have avatar envy.

    Oh, and this is the 39th post in this thread, which is 3x13.

    Although the subject matter is rather petty (honestly, the crime of "bumping" may be punishable by firing squad wherever you are from, but that hasn't become universal.. yet), I am afraid that I cant allow people to lie about me. If that is the reason AAAC gave or the reason they say I was banned, then it is a lie. I was banned for political reasons which they will never share with you because it makes them look desperate. I would hope that that is not what they are saying. Sorry, dont want to get into this but you are throwing the bait out there...monsewer instigator. Lets please not let this turn into a canine flambe.

    Im sorry, I didnt realize an arbiter elegantiarum was supposed to be "Humble and loveable." So sorry I never noticed you at all, did you ever post any of your enviable togs?

    Well thanks that you enjoyed the posts, old boy, but tell me, why must you be so jealous about my beautiful Corvato suits? I tell you what, if you are ever in NYC, email me, I will gladly introduce you to the maestro, and he will help you with that first step of learning to treat yourself to the best.


    Adieu, monsewer, as they say, what?

    LOL, actually the last line was pretty funny, in a light chuckle sort of way.
