‘How to smoke a cigar at Davidoff, London.’

I look forward to the video of Kirby and Waynetta Slob discussing cigarettes. What, what, what!

If you watch that video will see Kirby come up with a posturing of a high grade movie star. It is about 2/3 of the way through (I think) and he talks about having a cigar with friends blah blah. The way he does it is brilliant and is his best moment on youtube by far. His words are measured and hits the right tone. It's his golden moment.

It's gone beyond mere satire. I'm increasingly convinced that it's some sort of performance art project.

Yes.

and ole Kirbs models his $700 bespoke Wil Whiting casual shirts. See from about 14:46 - end.

and of course the classic overcoat scene. Quite similar to the dramatic Huntsman scene.

Despite Kirby talking about gemming failure at John Lobb and knowing about how hand welted is a life long construction, he still continues to avoid this subject completely when talking about hand welted shoes. He seems to be very selective in the information he gives. Same goes with leather outsoles, he recently mentioned the word "Bakers" but usually avoids that word like the plague. Kirby can be like a news program, he can give you part of the story/information but not the full information because he leaves important parts out. I wonder why he avoids mentioning certain things.
