But yeah, I do disagree with recommending someone $500 Balmain jeans. It's a joke, as much as it is to recommend a brand like Zara.
Bottom line, I don't find it helpful to recommend things you know nothing about to people. The difference with the way other people on here give out advice is that they do so from personal experience and act like it's their own money on the line. But it's the internet, so anyone like you with a connection is suddenly a voice of reason.
I think I'd be pretty pissed if I was just starting out and I found out that the same guy I trusted to tell me which pair to buy was the same dude who called corduroy pants, "jeans."
I'm not really sure what your problem is, dude. Here's his post:

I think I will hold off on buying the iron hearts, and take a bit more time to look at other brands & fits.
I really like some of Artishard116's recent fits in the WAYWT & TOJ threads - They show the kind of fit I want with the black jeans. I'm just not sure if that look really goes with the iron hearts....
He's on a budget, he's new to clothing, and he wants a pair of black overdyed denim. As a side-note, the jeans Artishard is wearing in the fit pic he's referring to are waxed DRKSHDW, which I recommended both times, and which fit most similarly to the Balenciaga/Diors that you think are a joke.
Here was my response:
For black jeans, imo, get h&m or uniqlo (something cheap) or, barring that, something with a cool finish like DRKSHDW or balenciaga waxed. Buying super expensive raw denim in black isn't the best use of your money, unlike indigo where it can be pretty cool. Plus, if you're trying to break in two pairs of heavy raws at once you're gonna be unhappy.
I mean, it sucks they didn't work out for him, though tbh it sounds like he just needs to size down, but are you really saying that recommending Uniqlo overdyed jeans in black instead of Iron Hearts to someone who is on a budget, just starting out, and buying a bunch of other stuff at the same time is bad advice?
