What if Style Forum had it's own tv channel?

"Manton Idol" -- Our exalted senior member would host a competition where different SFniks come on with their latest and greatest ensembles. The audience would call in not just to vote, but to offer critiques.

"Crossfire, SF" -- an obviously deranged Frenchman would go head to head with J over lapel widths, screaming out "Green is for farmer!"

"Shoe Porn After Dark" -- high-def, full-color lingering slow-pans of Lobb, Edw Green, and other objects of our desire, lit beautifully and with a wocka-wocka guitar soundtrack.

"Molto Mario" -- after the cancellation of his FoodTV show, Mario Batali comes to SF with a half-hour program on how to get food stains out of better clothing. (Would have to be mature audiences only. Not sure our more gentle-minded viewers could handle the sight of a pure cashmere Purple Label blazer with a big wine stain on the lapel. Horrors!)

"Monk Strap" --a sitcom where Kabbaz hires an OCD apprentice with hilarious results: he wants to be very precise, but can't stand the thought of touching an actual client. At the end of 22 shows, he's only managed to sew on three buttons because he can't seem to get the crow's feet pattern exactly right.

And finally, "A Vass Deferens" -- a twelve-part HDTV documentary following a pair of Vass U-lasts as they make their way from cow pasture to footwear.

"Shirt Swap"
Members of two families order shirts from Jantzen for each other working only from photographs. Then they don each others' shirts and critique the fit.

SF Celebrity Fear Factor. Aportnoy must walk a mile in K-Coles. Manton has to wear a black suit with matching tie, pocket square and do-rag to a book-signing at the Library of Congress. AlanC has to play Lincoln in a Presidents' Day Pageant.

OK, this made me laugh out loud. Sir, for a man of the cloth, you seem to have watched some real porn in your time.
