I hope he ain't my coworker trolling.

I have a decent troll radar and it never went off so I will be really amused if this is trolling.

Apropos of nothing beyond my current mood, I have to say that the older I get the more I think of the Dean as the true hero of Animal House.

 

Carry on.

Would definitely be a great troll. Hats off!

All I can say is that I sincerely hope the $1000 shirts and $7000 suits are the fruits of one's hard earned wealth.

 

I can only speak for myself, but it would be truly off putting to approach purchases of high cost with such a cavalier attitude...especially when it's really someone else's scratch.

Sigh: it's much more isolated (and less damaging to the liver) doing these degrees part time and/or online. I can certainly attest to the fact that my current cohort of full time MBA students has likely ruined quite a few shirts. I don't think any of them were $1000, of course; they're hoping to buy those with their shiny new job after graduation.

He's no a troll, but he is having some fun with us by intentionally making statements that he knows will get a rise out of people.  He seems to enjoy being provocative and debating, which is why I think it's time to start a new thread on his Bespoke adventures.

I think there was some unnecessary needling being done to him early on, as well. Can't blame a dude for jabbing back.

"In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtrl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1]extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion"  Wikipedia.

 

Even if he's serious, he's trolling.

I didn't really wear much CBD in my college days, but I did wear more casual patch pocket jackets and OCBDs with knit ties, and I already stood out quite a bit at one of the most formal universities. You'd certainly be the odd one out if you're dressed CBD all day everyday.

Also, what are you going to do when you're dressed up in your 1000 shirt and 7000 suit and someone spills something on it at a party, which is bound to happen. Wear the stained suiff anyways or throw it out? Tell someone he/she ruined your 1k shirt?

So, just be aware of the context and have a think about whether you're ok with those downsides.

Definitely won't be wearing anything as a normal student and ESPECIALLY not to any parties... I'll stick to Luxire button downs and slacks and the like. It's more for any time I need a jacket/tie when I'm still in school for events/dinners/etc, and also so by the time I actually get to the real world, I won't look like a doof.

Would you guys be more amused if I turned out to be a troll or if I actually got the shirts/suits/shoes and posted about them? If it's better for me to be a troll, I can just not post anything and become one.

That's pretty much it. Really not sure how useful a new thread will be until I have clothes in hand, though.

Don't be silly, Noodles, none of your coworkers even know who Alex Kabbaz is (or even the difference between MTM and bespoke, for that matter). No denigration of your office - I am sure that my coworkers wouldn't know the difference either.

I have no idea what his intentions are, so I have no opinion on his candidacy for trollhood. Moreover, I think it’s best to think of ‘troll’ as something a post does rather than something that a person does. The same person might be trolling in some posts and not in others.

 

Moreover, the border between troll behavior and garden variety attention-seeking behavior is ill-defined, and I could easily make the case that without attention-seeking behavior this thread might not exist. Come to think of it, without attention-seeking behavior SF might not exist. Which is why I’m usually inclined to pass over stuff like this without comment.

 

Cheers,
