My Theory

My theory is that Theory makes a nice pair of pants...a nice pair of pants. But jeez Louise they cost a lot! I refuse to spend $300 on a pair of unlined pants, but I guess I am willing to spend $138. They really fit better than most pants, look fairly cool for work/dress pants, and they can be worn pretty much all year round. So a good investment, I'd say. I got these on the 40% off the lowest marked price rack at Bloomingdale's today. And I suspect I may be able to find others on sale at Nordstrom's, Saks and Bergdorf's...but that is just a theory.

Agreed, back when I wore a size 0, Theory was one of the few labels I could wear to work (pants wise).

Now that I'm older and larger (6) and can wear other more expensive brands I can tell you that linings are a thing of the past. I recently bought a pair of $600 pants (marked down to $400) that have no lining in them.

Most pants at Barneys have no lining. It's sad but lining seems to be a thing of the past :-(

I bought a similar pair of Theory pants at one of the thrift shops on W 17th St. for $15 on Saturday! I was very happy with my find.

Ugh. I agree about spending so much money on unlined pants. I also like the look of Theory but I can't help but feeling ripped off. Kind of like when contrast stitching on everything was so in style. Nothing screams cheap like saving manufacturing dollars on matching thread and trying to push it on the market as a fashion trend.
