River Phoenix, what can you say, he was a pretty cool guy – and we try and think of this brand as a kind of what if River Phoenix trained for a marathon. Not, obviously, now. But in his day what would his gear look like? We think something like this might work for the before / after training. We took the concept of a vintage flannel but gave it function. The Ninety One has a nubby, beautiful vintage like cotton from Japan that’s been heat sealed to a nylon tricot under layer to provide water resistance.
