Fitigues clothing founders launch new gym-chic R&R Surplus collection at Montage

R&R Surplus will have a permanent home in Laguna Beach starting Saturday, June 1, when founders Steve and Andi Rosenstein unveil their new flagship store at their personal favorite place for rest and relaxation, the Montage Laguna Beach. 

The Chicago natives are no strangers to Orange County as they opened their first California Fitigues shop at Fashion Island in 1996. This power couple is credited with creating the athleisure trend in the late eighties with the launch of Fitigues. 

They sold their interest in 2006, headed west to Scottsdale, Ariz. and learned very quickly that the lazy river was not in their future. In 2010 they created The Duce, a converted 1928 former produce warehouse that has since become one of the hippest, most innovative venues in town.

R&R Surplus introduces new men’s collection 

In 2012 Andi decided to return back to her first love of designing sophisticated, luxury comfort you love to live in. The couples’ youngest son Luke, former Fitigues baby model, is now the company’s lead men’s designer. 

“Having spent the better half of my adult life designing clothing that felt as great as it looked, I noticed a void for uncomplicated style, simplicity and comfort. R&R picks up where Fitigues left off and the customer has fallen in love again,” stated Andi Rosenstein.

Every stitch of R&R is produced in Los Angeles and is now available in prestigious independent men’s and women’s specialty stores, upscale fitness clubs, and luxury resorts throughout the U.S. and abroad.

“What started as a business relationship with The Montage has since grown into a very special friendship. When the opportunity came along to actually have our own shop on property it was a dream come true” says Steve, the grittier of the two. 

The Grand Opening is set for Saturday, June 1 and the couple will be on hand to sip champagne, reconnect, and reunite with locals and guests who’ve lived in their product for decades.

The Montage Laguna Beach is located at 30801 South Coast Hwy.
