Grayboy Tee - Amateur
Made in Massachusetts from our revised Varsity Cotton, the new Grayboy is our take on the team-issued training tee.
Earned with Sweat
Sweat should be a badge of honor. Sure, there are times when you want a technical fabric to hustle perspiration away from your skin, but despite advances, nothing matches the simplicity and indescribable feel of cotton. It’s breathable, it doesn’t retain odor and it gets better with every mile. Besides, nobody ever fell in love with polyester.
You spoke, we listened: the new Grayboy is built differently to the original with an all-gender cut, available XXS to XXL. Designed to stay true to size after multiple washes, wherever you sit on the spectrum, there’s a Grayboy to go.
In 2023, we updated our Varsity Cotton to reduce shrinkage after wash. This all-gender tee fits true to size and will not shrink over time.

The T in
The nickname “Grayboy” was given to the standard-issue tee-shirts handed out to the Georgetown track team. The shirt was a badge of honor. To get one, you either had to make the team, or become very close friends with someone who had. Made in Massachusetts from our bespoke Varsity Cotton, the Grayboy is our take on the team-issued training tee.
Better with Age
Developed and woven in North Carolina, our revised Varsity Cotton is built to be soaked with sweat, run after run for a lifetime or more. Easier to care for and with less shrinkage than previous iterations, this new fabric is built to go the distance.
The Amateur Spirit
The word ‘amateur’ derives from the Latin ‘for the love,’ and even professional runners spend more of their lives as bona fide amateurs than they do as card-carrying pros. Professionalism is a flash in the pan, a short-lived financial arrangement. Amateurism, by contrast, is a state of mind – a way of life that lasts longer than any sponsorship deal. For the podium, for a personal best, for the love – there are no shortcuts, join us for the long run.
The Long & Short
The Grayboy has been a staple of the Tracksmith range since day one: a team-issued tee for aspiring amateurs and reluctant pros. What started as a one-color short sleeve has been joined by long sleeves, tanks, and limited edition colorways. Things change, but the Grayboy is integral to our journey – make it part of yours.
