NEW YORK — Terry Lay, a former VF Corp. executive, is coming out of retirement to head Haggar Clothing Co., one of the largest casual pant makers in the country, where he’ll be tasked with cleaning up the brand’s mid-tier core, adding upmarket licenses and pursuing international business.
“I wasn’t looking to get back into [men’s wear],” said Lay, who climbed the ranks at VF during his 34-year career there and retired in 2005. “But they found me, and I have a lot of respect for the brand and its potential to fill the void in the growing middle-market men’s wear arena.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
