    Well some things have not been definitely proven yet, therefore theory still exists. It's simple science bro. :rimshot:

    Copped the stretchy slim jeans...might go back for another pair or two.

    Better than the $140 price tag on the stretch traveler jeans from BR.

    Since the web store doesn't do exchanges, I called to ask about an exchange to get a size larger on the +j vest, and they said they'd waive the return fee since I was gonna order another. Cool.

    Anyone tried the slim tapered color jeans? I got 3 pairs on promo yesterday for 20 bucks a piece. Is the feel anything like the skinny tapereds?

    The material is a lot thinner. Like leggings. The material on the skinny tapers is really nice. Soft but crisp and has the stretch for comfort.

    I ordered the J+ vest in the same size as my slim oxford size and am pretty pleased with the fit (particularly if you reverse it where it only has two exterior pockets). Had I gone down a size I don't think the arm opening would be very comfortable if worn over anything other than a t-shirt or oxford. And at that point, feel like the vest's whole purpose would be defeated - especially as I like to wear it over sweaters and sweatshirts.

    Theory exists because there are a LOT of people who have money, base the value of a garment solely on its price and want to wear nice "normal" (non-stylized), reasonably well-cut clothing in decent fabrics (see: 90% of Barney's mens buys every season) that they can easily find in physical retail stores. Obviously it doesn't provide exceptional value/design and it's not a brand for communities like this, but it shouldn't be too hard to understand why it's popular.

    Of course it's hard to understand when there is much better shit out there, your logic doesn't apply. If people wanted to spend money on nice basics they're buying cucinelli not theory.

    Cucinelli is far out of the reach of most people in terms of pricepoint and distribution; Theory is not, which is the point I was trying to make. Accessibility isn't an issue for people on here, but there are tons of people who just walk into stores and buy stuff that they think looks nice with little consideration to what else is on the market. Theory is in a lot of stores (even in suburban areas), Cucinelli is not. Theory is a somewhat palatable pricepoint (though poor value, I'm not going to argue there), Cucinelli is not. Of course Cucinelli makes the better product, but most people won't go through the effort of searching it out, they'll just buy what they can easily get.

    ^ You started with saying "a lot of people have money". Having money does not equal buying Theory. Furthermore, if these people just buy what's easily available not only are they not actually wealthy, they're idiots as well.

    Maybe for mall-going yokels who think shopping at J Crew is a a splash out on a big spend, then Theory "appears" to be a luxury brand, but 5 seconds on Google will tell you otherwise. Given the ease of access to information I'd rather order some nice shit online and have it sent to me than think I'm cool buying some Theory shit at the mall.

    Yes, I am referring to the mall clientele, which often includes people with disposable income ("having money") who aren't necessarily interested in clothing to the extent that people on here are. What I was attempting to get across (poorly, apparently) is that the average shopper (the one that thinks J. Crew is "high end") is generally uneducated about product, isn't doing research and is just going to the mall, browsing a few stores, and buying what they like. Theory is easy to find and, as a result, sells. It has nothing to do with product quality. Am I missing something huge here? Seriously, I'm not trying to stir up shit, this has just been my experience observing customer behavior in retail in the past.

    EDIT: I just reread my past posts and I think they may have been confusing in that I didn't specify that I considered Theory an expensive mall brand (with the customers/shopping behavior to match). I also referenced Barney's buys just as a comment on the blandness of men's buys in general. I found the comparison of Cucinelli to something mall-level a bit odd, but it makes sense considering how I worded my past few posts.
