 Absolutely, but one of the great things about SF is that people interested in dress well can get advice and feedback from others who are similarly inclined. I don't think there's anything wrong with giving constructive feedback on what doesn't work in a fit. See also:  Something about it is incongruous? Or you just don't like it?
 It's more the tie and waistcoat with cuffed jeans and rugged boots... just incongruous in every way. And a little too much on the top although thread groupthink probably disagrees.  FTFY Thrift fit - MC edition  Coat - Michael Tapia, from dm7Suit - Corneliani, thriftedShirt - CK, discountTie - Charvet, freebie from Randomore!!!

 Woah, The Casualties are still around? They were like one of my first ever shows as a kid.  Do you have a multiple personality disorder that kicked in halfway through dressing yourself?  To be fair, this is a thrift store thread...
I don't know, a friend of mine has some Balmain jeans that look like awful mall-brand pre-faded crap, but apparently cost $2k. Unless that suit is just a fake, it seems too new to be licensed, and it's not the Pierre line either.
 It's not just you. Proportions look kinda off too, although that could be the angle I suppose.  I'd be inclined to say good Balmain, but someone who knows more should weigh in. Also, there is no 'good' Balmain. Only crap Balmain and oh-my-god-I'm-going-to-sell-this-and-be-rich Balmain.
 Nope, you're wrong about the consensus. Nobody ever assumed it was sold at Macy's. It's an older version of Armani's middling diffusion line. The newer 'Armani Collezioni' stuff has some re-sale value and is good to wear if you like it and it fits, but the old stuff is kinda shit for re-sale (I'm sure someone will post a link to prove me wrong) and often very dated.
 If that thing is part of a suit, whoever broke it up did that jacket a favour. I'd say dressy chinos or tan or brown pants, or the aforementioned medium grey trousers would look good, with an ecru or not super dressy white shirt and a solid navy or burgundy tie, maybe a knit.
 I stand corrected, although I'd want to see the whole coat.  +1 those things look like they were created as part of a practical joke.  Love the jacket (same one you rocked in a past fit pic?) but a little less sure of the cropped pants + fur-lined slipper boots. Take a full body pic!
To be fair, if you got a tux you like, I'd say you won this one.
 I went to one of those once. Pretty sure it took a couple years off my life.   OK, time to clear up some misconceptions:  Not the 'good' Valentino by this thread's quality/flippability standards. There are two 'good' Valentinos: 1) Recent Valentino.2) Valentino's 'Tailoring' label, which is made by Isaia. Will be a black label with gold lettering, the word 'Tailoring' underneath and, you know, an Isaia content tag. The dead giveaways that that's old is the 'Uomo,' the...
