How do you deal with jealouses?

Do you keep a screenshot of your stock portfolio? Do you show them your receipts and paystubs?

My LV tote is my beater bag; I take it to Walmart or throw it under an airplane seat. If that makes you upset, so be it. My friends and I keep our nicer ones for other occasions, so your head won't explode upon viewing.

I'm going to play devil's advocate and ask you this, why does it matter what they have on their shirt?


Also as for the shirt, it's no different than people wearing torn or ripped clothing that they didn't rip, people wearing stuff that looks vintage or tour band tshirts that they most likely didn't go see.

All in all, they're not the problem here.
It matters because they are pretending to be something that they are not: a Harvard University student. It's like people wearing fake military medals and uniforms.

No, you're the one making the assumption that just because they're wearing something emblazoned with 'Harvard' on it that they went to Harvard.

Regardless of whether they did or didn't, how does this materially affect you in any way?

Jelly? Grow up! Im a guy I dont care about purses anyways, it's just funny seeing women at a mall carrying LV but shopping at Old Navy. Gimme break.
Why is that so funny? So if someone owns an LV bag, they're not supposed to shop at certain stores?

Alligator. You can probably cop one like that off of Grailed for like 10-20k. $100k is msrp.

give lots of head for sick knee fadez, give lots of lap dances for ca$h wallet fades. Always pop that leg when kissing for dope honey combs, knee lots of mans in the crotch for killer whiskers, low ride like an og for them stacks. And traintracks? Only achievable by a legend in the denim game

No, just no. If anyone is in a fake military uniform, they can easily get arrested. That is outright illegal.

As for the university student, it's no different than the example I gave. It's harmless and it simply affects no one. Not to mention that you have no idea whether or not they were gifted that shirt or if they actually went there. Nevertheless, whether Chad from the office is coming in with a 10,000 dollar crocadile skin coat or a Harvard coat/shirt, it really does not matter.

Do you also get as concerned when someone wears athletic clothing but aren't physically active?
What about wearing running shoes but they don't actually run?
How about driving an SUV (or riding a mountain bike) but they don't take it off road?

These matters are inconsequential unlike the military uniform example you gave, and effect absolutely no one.
Posing as someone of higher authority is a completely different matter.
That's not a knife!

That is clearly their intention. They wish to seem more successful than they are. They are pretending. I find that offensive.

For 10K I could go for that.

Yes I do. It should be illegal to drive an SUV within city limits.

Without being aware of the circumstances one got the clothing it's impossible to say. If say I was a student at a prestigious University and got a bunch of clothing from them, but then for whatever reason I didn't complete my degree there, am I supposed to throw out some perfectly good stuff?

I'm not fond of the idea of "posers" either but like it or not, people have been passing off as things they aren't for centuries this is nothing new...I'm not sure why you're offended by it. The way others spend their money is their own thing, whether they want to use it to "pose" or otherwise.

This has nothing to do with the university. It's like Armani Jeans with Armani Exchange. Or Swiss Army and Swiss Navy.
