First donned by Track and Field icons in the early 1960s, the tracksuit is now a staple of pop culture. We’ve returned the silhouette to its athletic roots in a classic tricot with sophisticated details. For the warm-up, for the podium, for the love.
100% Tricot Polyester Track Pant
Machine Wash Cold With Like Colors
Tailored For Track
The track pant has a few aesthetic signatures that we wanted to be sure to retain: the tricot fabrication, pintucked leg, contrast stripe, drawstring waist and side pockets. While we loved these signatures, we didn't love the tendency for oversized tracksuits. Our update features a tailored silhouette and a tapered leg made from a 100% polyester tricot fabric with a textured back.
The name says it all. The tracksuit has its roots in running, first emerging in the early 1960s on athletes like Wyomia Tyus, who took silver in the 4x100 Tokyo and won gold in the 100 meter hurdles in 1968. Ironically, around the same time, French sportswear brand Le Coq Sportif introduced the “seventh day suit,” a tracksuit intended for day-off leisure wear. Over fifty-five years it’s continued to toe the line between activity and rest, worn by Olympians and hip hop stars, soccer players and Royal Tenenbaums. Our rendition keeps this balance of performance and comfort, thanks to a breathable tricot.
The word tricot comes from the French "tricoter," meaning "to knit." This soft and durable warp knit fabric has a smooth face and a textured back that's breathable and provides ample stretch for pre-race strides. The go-to fabric for track suits for decades for its comfort and longevity, our 100% Polyester tricot is a modern spin on this classic material with a luxurious hand feel even Run DMC might envy.
The Tracksuit is called a suit for a reason. Pair your pants with our matching jacket with our signature pieced in sash.
