Yesterday I got the Van Cortlandt singlet and shorts for wear testing, for a post on RW next week.
The mesh is good performance material, at least based on two runs in really humid weather.
There are lots of fun little craftsmanship/design details on the clothes. Is that enough to get people to pay a premium?
I'll be asking Matt Taylor about target audience. The clothes are definitely cut for skinny runner builds, which may not necessarily overlap with urban hipster casual runners who would seem among those likely to be drawn by the aesthetics.
Wearing the shorts as a 50-year-old is funny because most people probably assume I'm running in shorts I got in high school.
