Suitmaker Ozwalkd Boateng brings a bit of Saville Row to the N98 with his take on the N98 Track Jacket. Boateng has come up with a suit concept that mixes classic tailoring techniques with technical features normally found in a sport performance piece.
Designed for the Brazilian football team, Boateng and Nike chose a lightweight wool to keep players comfortable in the country's warmer climate and features tracksuit sleeves on the jacket and on the ankles of the pants. A tonal Brasil logo across the back evokes a sporty and refined aesthetic and technical details are strategically placed throughout with lasercut perforations and sonically-welded seam-sealed pockets. The suit will be exclusive to the Brazilian hosts for the time being and with how well executed it is, it would be a big mistake for Nike to pass up on a general release.
