I do hope that you plan to remove the label from that coat though.  I would have thought it ridiculous to assume otherwise, except that I have actually seen people leave the labels on their overcoats (and suits.), presumably because they're trying to impress someone with the 'status' label.
I just give the wearer the benefit of the doubt and assume that they are, in fact, gay clubbers.  The label left on was a popular practice with gay vogue dancers who made it a practice to buy really expensive labels, going vogueing in them, and then returning the clothes (NWT.) the next day.
Don't think sexual orientation has anything to do with it. 'Wear and return' is an equal opportunity offense. No the people I've seen leave labels on were clearly not planning to return the items.

j., Bemoaning the living language now?  Maybe you like the French system, where a committee convocates periodically to deliberate on what is allowed, and what is not allowed, in the French language.
Maybe they have a good idea. "Vogueing" is a really stupid word. I like the combination, although maybe a little less brown on top would help. As it is, the black shoes will stand out quite a bit, and so it needs a little help from the jacket/vest/shirt/tie.

I like the black shoes. I think brown shoes would make the outfit appear stangely monochrome instead of striking.
Not monochrome, sepia. I like the outfit with the black shoes, but it's the shirt that doesn't quite help the overall harmony. If you had a solid dark tie to smooth the transition between the shirt and the suit, then maybe the shirt wouldn't look out of place. The best shirt would be a solid one, white being the most suave. The next best would be a tan shirt. The combination of the suit and overcoat with the black shoes is quite sophisticated, and original. As for the label on the coat, maybe he just purchased it and was very happy to show it to the forum. Guys, give the man a break.

Sepia is a subset of monochrome.

This is a catalogue pic right? I really don't think he's going to toss his new Prada overcoat down in a planter. I think that black shoes look great with brown, perhaps not Prada black shoes, but I digress...

It's a picture from a web catalog, yes.
