Hey guys!

I just got a message from Marcus Wainwright. He informed me that they have not been sold to Theory.

Just thought many of you would appreciate this news...I know I do.

Cheers!

Not sure I believe this, how does something like this get started. I know they moved into a spiffy new office a little while back. Something is up.

It probably started like all rumors get started: someone was misinformed, misunderstood, or just plain lying for attention.

So unless the co-creator of Rag & Bone straight lied to me (which I would highly doubt)...what's left to question?

In the end, you're entitled to believe what you want. But this comes from the most reliable source: the man himself.

point of clarification: This is coming from someone who says they got it from the co-creator of R&B. Unless you are in the habit of referring to yourself as "the man", This isn't coming to us from "the man himself."

Oh..I'm sorry...the information is coming to me from the man himself (Marcus Wainwright).

But the purpose of this post was not to get into an argument about semanitics, simply to set a rumor straight.

I heard Theory did not buy Rag and Bone but they are backing them with money and other things for some reason??
IDK what that means but I heard it from Jets boy Ryan from SW

I have a store in portland, or and i buy rag and bone. I have been to their showroom and i can assure you they do not share it with theory. theory may be in the same building (i am not sure of this) but there were many businesses in the same building.

Are you Blake of Blake? If so, I've never been, but have good things about the store. Welcome and cheers.
