Iffley Road was founded in 2013 by Husband and Wife team, Claire Kent and Bill Byrne, a London based brand, which showcases A collaboration between Style and premium active wear, all pieces inspired by moments ‘rooted in running history’.
Named after the Oxfordshire-based track where the first four-minute mile was conquered by Roger Bannister in 1954, this brand wishes to be an introduction into the running world, through a mix of comfort, style and ventilation paired with your classic running wear silhouettes it fulfils all your needs.
Since creation, the brand has become renowned for their best-selling Cambrian t-shirt – an iconic piece that offers unrivalled performance and style. Lightweight and breathable, the Cambrian is crafted from highly wicking, bespoke dri-releasee Piqué fabric that dries four times faster than cotton. With a slim cut and slightly longer sleeves, the t-shirt has become the ‘go to’ classic for runners across the globe.
The Cambrian t-shirt also features a nod to this iconic record, with a tri-stipe hanging loop incorporated into the design bearing the colours worn by Roger himself, whilst the brand logo reflects the roundel adorning Bannister’s vest.
