POST EVERYTHING NIKE APPAREL RELATED....
Never shying away from the great military silhouettes over the years, Nike Sportswear's NSW range will draw inspirations from the 1951-released M51 parka in an upcoming September release. Combining a 2L Storm Fit material with many of NSW's technically innovative production processes, this looks to be another solid bit of design from the Nike Sportswear apparel team led by Jarrett Reynolds.
The NSW Collection presents M51 Parka
Uniting the worlds of sport and culture, the NSW collection is the pinnacle apparel collection within the broader Nike Sportswear line. Infusing Nike's DNA and heritage into sport pieces, NSW challenges the mindset of the modern athlete and creative perspectives on sport. Designed for sport, re-mastered for life, this integrated collection acts as a North Star for Nike Sportswear design and informs new aesthetics using the amalgamated innovations of 37 years of Nike's deep roots.
"This season the NSW collection highlights Nike's ability to draw inspiration from tradition while continuing to introduce innovative performance sportswear that remains aesthetically iconic. Each piece is obsessively designed to be the pinnacle of both performance and style, and this season unleashes that creativity to new forms." - Jarrett Reynolds, Nike Sportswear Design Director.
In September, the NSW Collection presents you "M51 Parka", Nike's unequaled pursuit of a higher level of function, performance and style.
The NSW M51 Parka The M51 Parka draws inspiration from the all-weather military silhouette with an innovative Nike twist. Linerless 2L Storm Fit keeps the M51 light and capable no matter the mission, while laser cut pocket detailing and laser cut perforated pit vents make the M51 a Parka unlike any other. NSW tonal branding adorns the M51 to let all know where you stand.
1951 spawned a military-issue style icon. Initially designed for the freezing conditions of the Korean War, the M-51 was quickly adopted as the uniform of a youth movement. To understand the M-51 Parka's influence one need only look to the post WWII youths of Great Britain. Battle-tested and in pursuit of honest experience, they were passionate about American rock-n-roll and R&B, British café racers and Italian scooters. What started with the Teddy Boys evolved to become the Ton Up Boys and the Coffee Bar Cats, and would later give rise to the Rockers and the Mods. With a focus on clean style and a continual reincarnation of modern aesthetics, ideals, and fashion, the Mods adopted the M51 Parka as the preferred outerwear piece - first by necessity and later by choice. The M51 stands true, re-appropriated as a style icon for modern pursuits.
The M51 Parka receives a re-up on innovation while remaining identifiably true to form. Linerless 2L Storm-FIT replaces the heavy cotton canvas of the original. Laser-cut pocket detailing and laser-cut perforated pit vents keep the M51 light and capable no matter your mission. Inspired by the original, the M51 fishtail features waterproof zips, offering modularity that every Playmaker needs, in any environment.

Forged through a shared passion for innovation, meticulous craftsmanship, and authentic, high-quality fleece, the partnership between Nike Sportswear's NSW Collection and Japan's Loopwheeler continues with a series of products in premium loopback French terry fleece.
The fleece used for all NSW Loopwheeler products-is knitted on the brand's rotating looms through a process that holds its heritage as close as Nike holds its own. The yarn on the loopwheel never comes under tension, resulting in a relaxed fabric that is supremely soft. Under the watchful eye of Loopwheeler's craftsmen, a mere handful of Loopwheeler fleece garments can be made from the material produced each day. After the fleece is hand-cut and flat-lock stitched to insure comfort and durability, the results are nearly impossible to match.A marriage of obsessions, the relationship between Nike and Loopwheeler stands for supreme quality and meticulous craftsmanship. Working closely with Loopwheeler, one of the only manufacturers in the world that still makes cotton fabric on original loopwheel machines, Nike has crafted iconic Nike Sportswear products that are practically handmade. Created though an incredibly detailed process, the NSW Loopwheeler collection is extremely limited in quantity and unsurpassed in quality.
Upon Nike Sportswear's launch, the brand placed a strong emphasis on the M-65 silhouette. With good reason, the M-65 has become a popular classic for its utilitarian styling and functionality. In a recent release, we see the jacket undergo some simple colorways for the 2009 fall/winter season. Available in Obsidian and Dark Gray, the jackets feature an NSW favorite, seamless welded construction with Nike proprietary Storm-FIT materials. Available now at HAVEN.
