Blending Ozwald Boateng‘s sartorial know-how with Nike‘s acute eye for athletic designs, the two have joined forces to present the N98 Suit. Coinciding with the World Cup, the sharp silhouette is inspired by London’s Savile Row suiting and the original Away uniform for the Brazil team playing in France in the summer of 1998. Manufactured in Italy and reinterpreted for the Brazil National Team, the suit maintains Boateng’s quality cut and sew techniques while incorporating subtle team branding throughout including the crest on the chest, shoulder-to-wrist stripe and back print. Encompassing Nike technology means that the suits are laser-cut and sonically welded like the team’s on-pitch jerseys.
