Sartre once said that commitment is an act, not a word. Tracksmith’s 2023 No Days Off (NDO) Collection embodies that philosophy not through its renowned runners’ clothing but by including one accessory in particular: a 365-day training calendar. The calendar is stylized to follow NDO’s circular theme, with runners crossing off training days as they march closer to the end of the year and, presumably, self-discovery at the circle’s center.
Potential existential crises aside, the collection conspires to remove all obstacles to running, even in the depths of winter. Pieces from Tracksmith’s collection include a wind-repellent jacket with 360-degree reflective details, a Merino wool mock neck, and a wool waffle knit base layer ensure that “It’s too cold!” is never an excuse. Bottoms include the Bislett pants, which offer pockets and stirrups to keep everything in place during extended runs. Aspiring alpine marathoners can also slip into the Trackhouse sweatpants and sweatshirt combo during downtime between runs.
The colorways are also distinctly winter: look out for earthy tones of ivory, pomegranate, dune, tamarind, navy, and of course, black. Additional cold-thwarting accessories include posh Pelli slippers, a coffee mug, an ear warmer wrap, a varsity cap, and mittens. The complete Tracksmith collection fits nicely into the 21×18” leather weekend duffel, available in black, a navy/ivory combo, or a cognac/ivory combo. Perhaps in winter, it’s consistency and cognac that triumph.
