Good questions. I asked the SA/Asst. Manager about Theory and she was convinced that the cuts and quality are top notch. I'm not convinced. Everything seems to be made in China. There are some great mills and factories in China, but overall, I guess I have a general distrust of the quality and ethical accountability. IMHO it's hit or miss with regard to quality. But 40% is still a heckuva deal.
Co-Op brand, however, seems to be sourced from all over the world-- I've seen labels for some of their garments made in Italy, UK, etc. Not that that's the best measure of quality, but everything I've seen appears to be well-made. Personally, I only have some basics but I dig them. I also feel better about them for ethical reasons. Someone from Barney's is purchasing these goods from these makers, and I'm sure great care is taken to ensure their brand is represented well. I am assuming that there are better working conditions for the workers, etc., too.
