This has been my experience as well. They have some really simple, flattering designs, and I've been very happy with the couple unsold pieces I've managed to find in thrift stores (original retail: $1,000 )

Moving on, someone save me some dollars and tell me when the next sales period starts. Please. I feel I'm in danger of making a tiny huge mistake.
The funny thing is that people hate on Theory for being just boring basics, but when it comes time to personal purchasing, a lot of guys eschew anything interesting for things like White Common Projects, which are about as blandly stylish as you get.
Incidentally, I feel that this is a good argument against the "minimalist" wardrboe, which had its heyday in the 90s (Donna Karan's 7 pieces, Puma's 96 Hours with Neil Barrett), but is still a concept that has appeal, especially for men. If you limit yourself to the minimal wardrobe, everything has to necessarily be versatile and modular. There is no room for those cool designs that are limited in scope.
