Made from luxurious and lightweight 2:09 Mesh, this tech tee is the antidote to any one of the cheap freebies you’ve collected over the years. Soft and breathable with an anti-microbial finish, the Van Cortlandt Tee is a perfect layer for race day warm-ups or harder training in warm weather.
Finally. A tech tee you can treasure.
THE LAST LAYER
Runners have their own rituals and superstitions on race day. But one thing we all have in common is a last layer - that top worn over your race kit and only removed at the last second before toeing the line. The Van Cortlandt Tee is built for speed and lucky by design.
When “Boston Billy” Rodgers won the Boston Marathon in 1975, setting his first American record at 2:09:55, he famously did so in a mesh tee he found in the trash. Inspired by his legendary performance, we scoured the earth for the very finest performance mesh. Astonishingly lightweight and antimicrobial with a luxurious feel you won’t find anything like our 2:09 Mesh in a dumpster.
The Tracksmith sash is inspired by the Cornell track and field teams of the late 1800’s. Athletes who scored points at the league championships earned a satin sash, sewn over the “C” on their singlet. It’s an symbol of excellence that we hope will inspire runners to perform at a level worthy of all those who’ve worn it before.
