La-Z-Boys may be deceptively comfortable but boy are they hard on the eyes! A proper man deserves a proper armchair – one that is conducive to lounging, but also screams out to company, “pick me!” when it’s time for a seat. The ultimate armchair is an oversized, weathered leather type, but those are real investment pieces. So until you become a man of leisure, consider these more affordable types, which have heft and stylistic integrity, but also look cushy enough to read a book in.
