Listen you came at me saying I needed 'remedy' with all me having said was that I need some suggestions for appropriate dress for the event.   You call me unprepared when I am currently in the process of resolving this by asking some men who have experience attending events of similar formality if you will. How else is it that I would be prepared for such an event, I am asking for suggestions 2 weeks in advance of the event so I am not worrying about this the night before. You call me rude when I excused my manners to quote what others had agreed upon, and you claim paranoia is setting in when a man whom I have not met in my life, claims I am in need of 'remedy' when I have not stated anything previous that would warrant such remark on your behalf.

Haven't you?

I think your original outfit will be fine and completely appropriate for the occasion. There is no need to add a jacket to what you suggested.

And Mr. Treehorn is being an ass.

Good Lord, man, why are you taking Treehorn even remotely seriously when it's obvious he's kidding around? Your gingham shirt and tie will be fine. On Thursday I attended a graduation at a large (admittedly second-string) state university here. You would be better turned out than the vast majority of the grads I saw .

Am I, though? Or am I imparting valuable wisdom upon this young man?

We seem to have gotten off the original question I asked of you, for which I apologize. It seems as if my emotions got the better of me which lead to my "rude" behaviour. May we please return to my original question to you, which was

 

Is a purple checkered/gingham dress shirt too informal to wear to a graduation mass and brunch?

 

 You responded with the following.

 

"Way too informal. Please reconsider your graduation, especially in light of how upscale the banquet hall will be. Are you sure you deserve this?"

 

Might you provide an example of which this type of comment would be warranted based on what I had originally stated?

100% you're being trolled. Just ignore him. He's trying to say, "You should look at your graduation banquet as a great honor, so you should dress really well in light of that, and you shouldn't be told what to do, I'm not trolling you I'm just being nice to you, I won't tell you what to do, you should dress however YOU think is appropriate, I'm not telling you what to do but...."

If you think too hard about your outfit, you're doing it wrong. The outfit looks good.

You'd be failing yourself if you accepted your diploma. You are not emotionally, socially, or mentally prepared to be graduated. Not yet. Do what must be done. Accept the necessity of remedy, in which there is absolutely no shame.

And you determined this based on what? The fact that this young man took time to ask whether a gingham shirt was appropriate attire?

You're a dick. Yes, you're trolling, but you are still being a dick.

Jackie just got the rest of the month off for being too much of an ass. Remember, people, too much of a good thing is still too much.

Cheers,

Fok.

I think it'll look fine with a solid charcoal or navy suit (when not wearing gown). I think I wore a t-shirt under my gown in HS... biggrin.gif

Once again I believe you are evading the question at hand.

 

Please provide an explanation using the original post I made which was,

He can't respond, his account has been suspended for being a jerk.
