    With respect to the deceased, there is no ill intent in thinking out loud about what will become of his estate. The thought must have occurred to everyone, I bet. The devious--there are probably many here--posted nothing in public, but discreetly contacted Lady Cashimira and offered to dispose of the estate...
    Waste of time. The stuff was clearly important to Kitonbrioni, and he clearly shared his obsession for his wardrobe with his family (clearly someone in his family knows of his clothing blog and its importance, enough to post an in memoriam!!). He must have made plans before his demise...
    I hope a small portion of the proceeds go to a sanctuary for rescued crocodiles...

    Back in the old days, particularly at AAAC, KB did engage in the threads. Here is a picture he posted in a thread on polo coats about 5 years ago. It blew my mind at the time (Loro Piana storm system cashmere, Oxxford camel hair, vintage camel hair). It's always been the picture I most identified with KB.

    RIP

    I am hoping that this thread goes away from personal insults and attacks and onto the heart of the question.

    There is a new picture today, of a small xmas tree. I hope this a positive sign.

    Thanks for the photo Alan. I hadn't seen that before.
    I posted my condolences to his site Saturday before realizing perhaps KB's father had passed. I got no response which does not bode well. :(

    He would have at least 1 exotic piece, maybe a crocodile belt.

    The photos look a lot like the military cemetery in tennessee(chattanooga national)

    There is nothing wrong with expressing curiosity about the fate of the wardrobe. It makes for interesting conversation, and I suspect he would have enjoyed reading and participating in such conversation as well. That said, it's inappropriate to express an interest in wanting to be the one to dispose of it, particularly when one is a known re-seller. I think that crosses the line unless it's something like "I would love to resell the wardrobe and give 100% of all proceeds to the family estate."

    Rest in peace!

    On a side note does anyone know why he has a ton of lyrics on the sidebar?

    That Oxxdord camel hair is pretty bad ass. Spoo, let me know when you get your hands on that coat.

    You mean Louisburg Square, Boston?
    It appears that's where Vox resides.

    One of his homes is there, at least.

    (based on photos from his blog.)

    In honor of kitonbrioni I will post the lyrics to Tubthumpin by Chumbawumba:

    We'll be singing
    When we're winning
    We'll be singing
    I get knocked down
    But I get up again
    You're never going to keep me down
    Pissing the night away
    He drinks a whisky drink
    He drinks a vodka drink
    He drinks a lager drink
    He drinks a cider drink
    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the good times
    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the better times
    "Oh Danny Boy
    Danny Boy..."
    I get knocked down
    But i get up again
    You're never Goin to keep me down
    Pissing the night away
    He drinks a whisky drink
    He drinks a vodka drink
    He drinks a lager drink
    He drinks a cider drink
    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the good times
    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the better times
    "Don't cry for me
    Next door neighbour..."
    I get knocked down
    But I get up again
    You're never going to keep me down
    We'll be singing
    When we're wining
    We'll be singing
