Can men wear sweatpants to a date? Public Rec says yes.
Public Rec, an apparel company based in Chicago, has redefined casual-wear for men. With their motto of "looking good is about feeling good", they have redesigned the concept of casual menswear. By making pants and shirts that feel like leisurewear, but have a casual appearance, Public Rec has created apparel that can be worn for any occasion. Therefore, whether you're walking back from the gym, going out for dinner or meeting your friends at the club, there is no need to compromise on style or comfort, Public Rec does both.
And all of this is being run by one man, Zach Goldstein.
Having spent much of his college life in sweat pants and then having to transition into the restrictive discomfort of suits as he worked at an investment bank, he instantly knew he had to find some middle ground. He decided to quit finance and focus on creating a men's line that would not force men to make a trade-off between style and comfort, but have the best both worlds. Comfortable enough to lay on a couch, but stylish enough to be worn for work.
And that he has done very successfully. Starting with their signature All Day Every Day Pants (see below), Public Rec now also sells shirts so that not only your legs but also the rest of your body can enjoy this heavenly bliss.
When we asked Zach if we could be expecting a women's line from Public Rec soon, he said he is not focusing on it right now , but in the future it could be possible. So for now ladies, guess we'll just have to stick stealing our boyfriend's!
