Nike SB x Carpet Company Skate Jacket in Black. Arriving as part of the Maryland-based skate collective’s latest capsule collection with the sportswear powerhouse, this Nike SB skate jacket pairs Carpet Company’s ‘habibi’ style aesthetic with Nike SB’s passion for skate-centric performance. A two-way profile crafted from 100% durable polyester, this bomber-style jacket is tailored to regular fitting for improved mobility and features block-tone elasticated cuffs, a thick-rib elasticated hemline and a full-length YKK zipper that flows through the immediate centre of the chest from its classic bold-black pointed collar neckline. Across its all-black exterior shell, crisp-white Arabic scripture decorates the zip-split chest to provide a creative translation of ‘Nike’ with reference to Carpet’s Egyptian roots and its star-embroidered right sleeve, whilst the reverse features two-tone embroidered ‘Carpet SB’ branding beneath the collar to honour the release’s collaborative namesake. When inverted, a washed-orange camouflage style print decorates the design’s synthetically-insulated shell for added character and depth, whilst embroidered ‘Carpet Company’ white-stitch detailing along the exposed all-black left chest seam is paired with a bright-blue embroidered ‘SB’ Swoosh for added notoriety. Across the rear, sewn-on Carpet Company patches above the waist complement the embroidered and overlaid ‘Carpet SB’ branding between the shoulders for additional textural definition. A reversible jacket inspired by heritage and the brand’s jovial aesthetic, this long-sleeve layer is well-suited to any active skate or street-led setting.
Led by brothers Ayman and Osama Abdeldayem, Carpet Company is a free-spirited skatewear collective famed for their habibi-styled habituals and their self-termed labour of loved aesthetic. Founded in 2015 and continually inspired by the legacy of Baker Skateboards, Carpet includes references to their Egyptian heritage with an undoubtedly contemporary sense of skate-centric appeal.
