The Trackhouse Crew is an elevated take on a team classic, delivered in a durable yet soft reverse-weave cotton blend that won’t pill. The ribbed cuffs, side gussets and hem help keep its shape over time. And like the team-issued sweatshirts you coveted in your parent’s closet, the Trackhouse Crew is heirloom-quality.
To the Trackhouse
Every team has a track house. And on any given Sunday, after the long run is complete and pancakes have been eaten, you can find athletes lounging in their sweats as they recover from another heavy mileage week. While this tradition has held strong for decades, today’s post-run sweats have not: cheap, plastic-feeling fabrics and unnecessary details had us yearning for something better. The latest-edition to the Trackhouse collection is our update on the classic crewneck silhouette.
Wears In, Not Out
We’ve long obsessed over classic team-issued gear - that symbol of belonging handed out at the beginning of the season. Meant to last from freshman to senior year, from post-workout to class, with every accumulated stain a badge of honor. All too often these sweatshirts get lost in the post-grad shuffle, or worse, stolen at a meet or “borrowed” by a significant other.
To recreate the feel and durability of these originals, we hunted high and low for this hard-wearing and hand-me-down worthy fabric. You can keep it baggy by air drying after the wash, or shrink it down as desired by throwing it in the dryer.
Carrot. Sweat Catcher. V-Stitch. There are a number of names for the “V” shaped construction on a crewneck sweatshirt. Originally designed to collect sweat around the collar and prevent the neckline from stretching when it was put on, we preserved this styling in the Trackhouse Crew along with ribbing in the collar, hem and side panels to help the sweatshirt retain its shape and prevent sagging.
