Public Rec is a men’s athleisure brand that has been changing the comfort game in pants and apparel for the past 8 years. The Daymaker Pant launched in 2015 delivering undercover comfort and versatility solving the age-old dilemma of – how can I look professional enough for work in a pair of pants that are so comfortable that I can also be down for whatever – including sneaking out to the links for that “business meeting” on that perfect summer Friday.
