Four way stretch.
Moisture wicking. Water resistant.
Runner-friendly pocket design.
Lightweight yet durable
TECHNICAL AND TASTEFUL IN EQUAL MEASURE
Inspired by training runs along the bustling banks of the Charles River, dividing the understated Brahmin sophistication of Boston from the innovation center of Cambridge, the Longfellow Short was designed to bridge the gap between the two worlds.
ELIOT STRETCH FABRIC
The Longfellow is constructed from our lightweight, Swiss-made, four-way stretch fabric. It’s moisture wicking, abrasion resistant, and ducks only wish water rolled off their backs as well.
THE DIFFERENCE IN THE DETAILS
The Riri zipper on the rear welt pocket. The horn buttons on the fly. Even the woven labels were designed to add a touch of style to your run.
The perfect pocket
Most runs don’t require a surplus of energy gels. Your credit card, driver’s license, and hotel key card are far more frequent running companions. As each of these items is designed in the shape of a proportionally perfect Golden Rectangle, we used the same dimensions to design the hidden front pocket of the Longfellow Short.
HOW THEY FIT
Neither too long nor too short. Neither binding nor baggy. Lightweight, but not at all flimsy or stripped down. We designed the Longfellow with clean lines and tailoring details that make it the most versatile, least running-short-looking running short ever made.
Ruben Sanca, pictured here, is wearing our Longfellow in size 31. He is 6’2” and weighs 154 pounds.
For those who wouldn’t be caught dead running in short-shorts, but aren’t fond of either the sloppy basketball-length mesh or thin, clingy nylon options either, we’ve created the Longfellow Short. Designed to be the most technical, versatile long short on the market.
We started with the fabric. Four-way stretch, water repellent, moisture wicking and luxurious. We added two running-specific pockets, and perfected the fit. Slim and flattering while still allowing plenty of movement for a runner’s stride. Perfect when transitioning from run to café or conference call.
But performance always comes first at Tracksmith, so we outfitted Olympian Ruben Sanca in the Longfellow for our week-long training camp in northern New Hampshire. He logged over 100 miles and went from skeptic to convert after the first day. From morning runs to long runs, and trips to the market, the Longfellow Short passed the test with flying colors.
