Looking great Every Day with gear from Public Rec

Back in May, we did a Kickstarter of the Week about Public Rec's All Day Every Day Pant and were intrigued by what they had going on. Their campaign met the goal of $15,000 and were able to complete their product. Since that time, we have received a pair of their pants, as well as their Go-To Henley.

Public Rec makes technical leisure apparel for men. Whether you’re staying in or venturing out, our stylish take on high-quality, tailored comfort allows you to focus on what you do, not what you’re wearing.
  When we first wrote about Public Rec, we had this to say about their campaign:
The goal of the campaign is to "create a better-fitting, more stylish alternative to sweatpants". If you've been to the store or worn a pair of sweatpants, there seem to be only two options - baggy ones that drag on the floor or old sweats with elastic around the ankles. Neither are exactly "fashion-forward" and both come in limited, outdated sizing. Public Rec wants to update the sizing, style, and fit to bring back the comfort of sweatpants. They are made of a nylon/spandex blend, which makes them moisture-wicking. There is also a fake fly in the front, pockets in the back, and tapered at the ankles to give each pair an even more formal look.
I still stand by my quote that sweatpants are the best. There is just something comforting about them, for some odd reason. Perhaps it is because I only stopped wearing them in the 7th grade (middle school was rough man), but there's just something about the cozy feel that relaxes me from the dress pants and jeans I usually wear. I will say this first and foremost about the All Day Every Day pants. These are probably the most comfortable pants I have ever worn. That's not hyperbole - it's just a plain old fact.

And the best part is that I don’t even look lazy or disheveled when I wear them – they are a perfect combination of comfort, function, and style.  The pants are constructed with 92% polyester and 8% spandex, making them soft yet functional – a little stretchy

Add in a faux front fly and tapered bottoms, as well as zipped pockets, and you have a pair of sweatpants that are designed to be worn in public – not kept from it.

Go-To Henley

Go-To Henley

The Go-To Henley is made from a blend of Pima Cotton, TENCEL, and Spandex and almost (allllmost) feels like a really nice long-sleeved top that could be used for running (but please don’t do that – it’s too nice). It is moisture-wicking (sound familiar?), really soft, and, much like the Every Day pants, has some stretch to go along with it.

This is a top that has the casual comfort of a tech-tee (albeit a really nice one), but something I could almost pull off on a casual Friday at work. I found that the shoulders, created in a Raglan style (sleeves that continue in one piece up to the neck of a garment, without a shoulder seam) really made the athletic fit complete.
