Skate label Noah recently worked in collaboration with Scott Nelson on a collection of goods that honor the skateboarding history and the struggles that were faced during the rise. Nelson is an old friend of Brendan Babenzien and also a prominent character in the streetwear and skateboarding culture.
His brand 'The Duct Tape Years' celebrates the dedication uring the time of struggles in the skateboarding scene. The name of the brand recalls the times when skaters resorted to duct tape as repairing materials for their shoes and ripped knee pads. The range of apparel draws attention back to the times with a series of graphic prints along with some slogans that read "Babylon Makes The Rules' and "Peace It's Wonderful."
