BUILT FOR BREAKING RECORDS
“The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.”
— Sir Roger Bannister
Celebrate Bannister's legacy with our limited-edition 3:59.4 Singlets, inspired by the kit he wore to make history on May 6th, 1954.
The 3:59.4 Singlet is made from a micro-polyester and elastane blend that’s lightweight (115 grams/square meter), antimicrobial, soft against the skin, and stretches and recovers to match your stride. This Italian engineered material is made on special high- gauge knitting equipment that creates small pointelle holes, which improves airflow and allows the fabric to dry more quickly.
While Sir Roger Bannister was known for his amateur status, no detail was overlooked in the preparation for his record attempt - from the wind speed to precise pacing. We wanted our 3:59.4 Singlet to reflect this attention to detail - from the sash to the label. Rather than sewing and flocking these elements on top of the fabric, we employed a technique called sublimation to print them directly onto the singlet. It preserves the aesthetic while reducing the weight and chance of chafing.
