Girls, remember how attached we were to our velour Juicy sweatpants? We wore them everywhere, often with a color coordinating velour jacket. The grocery store, Starbucks, Blockbuster… Juicy tracksuit. They were just so darn comfortable. But I believe in gender equality, and I believe that men should have something just as comfy as our velour tracksuits, except maybe a little easier on the eyes. Okay, a lot easier on the eyes.
Enter Lounge County, the new loungewear brand offering menfolk the luxury of comfy threads that don’t sacrifice style. Imagine a waffle weave so wonderfully tailored, you wouldn’t be alarmed (or embarrassed) to see a gentleman caller showing up to take you to dinner and a movie in them. But a man in sweats, off the couch?! It’s not the easiest concept to grasp. So I caught up with the men behind the comfy collection, Texas natives Zach Redington and Andy Archer, to learn more about their new venture, the future of Lounge County, and whether or not the logo is indeed an octopus. (Spoiler alert: It is not. But close!)
