Theory Project: The User’s Guide

Lucas Ossendrijver’s fall collection for Theory Project offers unexpected depth and dimension. Here he walks us through the eye-catching details and functional aspects of this season’s highlights—all paired back to Theory Wardrobe staples.

The 3-in-1 Parka

“You get so much out of this one piece. It’s designed with a rich fabric and ample pocket space. Underneath, there’s a reversible-detachable liner made with brushed wool and quilted satin that snaps in and out. You can break it apart through fall and wear it all together for a warmer option through winter.”

The Reversible Bomber

“Based on a slightly oversized aviator jacket, this bomber has a polished recycled poly side and can be reversed to a brushed wool body with quilted satin sleeves. When you take a closer look at the binding along the closure and the leather finishing on the zipper tab, the workmanship really stands out.”

The Wool Gabardine Pant

"While this is a tailored pant, it’s not only meant to be worn in the context of a suit. The flat-front styling and stretch make it easy to wear for different settings and occasions.”

The Striped Shirt Jacket

“This streamlined layering piece is a cross between a jacket and shirt. It has a roomier fit so you can wear it over another shirt or under a blazer. It’s made with cotton poplin that has an exclusive pinstripe pattern on it.”

The Merino Wool Sweater

“This sweater is easy-to-wear and finished with a subtle stitching detail along the neckline. The nylon yoke on the back gives it a military accent. It’s great with jeans or a chino, but even better with tailored pants for the sporty contrast.”
