R.i.p. Kit
hi everyone...
i received some sad news and thought i should share it with my fellow tFS-ers...
one of our most beloved longtime members and contributors has passed away. KIT left us on tuesday after a struggle with cancer...

KIT's favourite section of tFS was designers and collections, where he always found something witty and clever to add...he loved Yves Saint Laurent and Claude Montana above all other designers and apparently gathered quite a collection over the years...

KIT was a man of incredible personal style...
elegant and with a lifelong passion for fashion...
he was also a very kind and gentle soul...
a true gentleman...

he added great style and wit to the forums and we will all miss his clever remarks...and seemingly unending knowledge of fashion history...

he is survived by his two beloved cats and longtime partner...
i am going to ask andy to add him to the alumni list, as his contributions to tFS have been imeasurable...

I know KIT has had a lot of friends here, so if anyone else cares to share some memories of him here, please feel free to do so...


*on a personal note-
my dearest kit-
rest in peace my darling...you will never be forgotten...

i am a better person for having known you...xxx...

Thats so so sad I offer my greatest condolenses to all who knew and loved him.
Cancer is such a beastly disease, I hope he didnt suffer at all. At least now he is no longer in pain and can rest in peace.

Oh.

A wonderful man -
Very few people are as much of a pleasure to talk to, or learn from.

This is very saddening news.

Kit was a brilliant presence here. Some of the best laughs I've had have been the result of his trenchant and breathtakingly witty posts. R.I.P.

Very sad to hear the news.

I found Kit's messages very amusing and sometimes truly an educational experience (what else from an ex-schoolmaster?).

From the few stories I heard of his exploits across Europe in socialism and fashion it sounds like he led a truly amazing life.

Rest in peace, Kit.

I still have a PM from him that I never answered.

So sorry to hear this.

kit's posts were always detailed, informative and cunningly embroidered with sly wit.

I take solace in knowing that he is no longer in pain.

The world needs more with his good sense and generosity.

RIP, kit
