    On a serious note, I also think that it is KitonBrioni who passed away. RIP. Incidentally, I thought of his wardrobe and Spoo at the same time.

    I guess you need a fauna update. The American Alligator is not an Endangered Species.

    I he were entitled to a Military Funeral, and it appears that he was, the Casket Flag and the
    shell casings from the rifle salute are given to the familiy, I believe.

    On the one hand, the part about selling it is a bit insensitive. It comes off as crass.

    On the other hand, his wardrobe was obviously something KitonBrioni loved and cared deeply for - his blog and participation at SF is evidence enough of this, and obviously his children understand that enough to make a post about the funeral on the blog. It is - in a matter of speaking - a defining aspect of his public internet life. It is him, and it is his legacy. That is not to diminish any other accomplishments of this man - however, other aspects of his life he did not choose to share publicly on the forum. Of course the members of the forum are going to have an interest in what happens to such an epic wardrobe. That interest is not an expression of greed or want, but an expression and interest of understanding the legacy of a specific aspect of that man's life, the specific aspect that we have interfaced with.

    When KB's demise has not yet been ascertained, talks about getting his wardrobe with the intent to profit from it reflects real class.

    This thread will get mighty awkward if it isn't Kb who has passed away.

    Somebody has passed away, and condolences to their family. I think it's clear from that final funeral tribute post that it was the person who was featured in that blog.
    I still remember vividly the Wednesday evening in mid-spring 2005, when I stumbled onto Kitonbrioni's blog. A friend and I had a good laugh that day. As others pointed out, the wardrobe was overflowing with clich├ęd luxury--cashmere, shearling, alligator everywhere. Nothing seemed to fit, it all swamped what seemed to be a frail old man. I periodically checked the blog over the past 6 years, often going through the archives.
    I think he enjoyed himself in that blog, which was good...and he made someone else laugh...which was even better.


    Actually, 2 weeks ago, I PM'ed another SF member much older here than me, asking about VoxSartoria. His SF membership disappeared...I recently discovered his blog...did he reincarnate in Styleforum?

    Voxsartoria's shoe collection, shoe storage rack (or maybe even shoe storage room) gave me the chills. I had read about Imelda Marcos...but seeing Voxsartoria's photos was another experience...
    The other thing is Voxsartoria seems to live exactly where I lived when I was in the US, it's eerie to see fit pics taken in places that are so familiar. Who knows how many times our paths may have crossed in real-life...
