The problem is that most outsiders scoff at that price because they don't understand the level of work and attention to detail that it...
I hate jeans nerds. Just be a good Protestant, go to the department store, and buy something from the second cheapest brand.
Are you taking fashion notes from stevedores and slaughterhouse-workers on what jeans they're wearing?
It's not related to men's fashion. You'd probably get a better answer in the denim & streetwear group. Random uneducated guess: some combination of smaller scale production, higher quality fabrics, and pricing themselves higher to be seen as a luxury/status item.
My mother told me I had one too many tattoos on my face, and I just kept them all. That's because I am thug life. He took off of one of the tattoos, that shows he is not.
No. If you don't currently have a suit and you're getting into it, go to a decent place and get a grey or charcoal suit. They should be able to size you right.

Get something good but not more than you can afford.

Maybe you aren't used to clothes that fit your shoulders properly? ...
The quick answer is "no." It looks like something a college kid would wear to a club. On the other hand, they won't care what clothes you're wearing unless it's ridiculous. Personal opinion would be: don't wear a dark shirt unless you're at a club, the pinstripe trousers are kind of tacky, I don't like the ties, the shoes are big and boxy (get something round and lace-up). Can't really tell on the jacket due to the pose and picture, seems OK but I wonder if the...
