Poetic Collective Skateboard Decks

Seeing as the brand's founder, Tom Botwid, studied in the Berlin Art Academy, it's no surprise that Poetic Collective's skateboard decks are veritable works of art themselves. Their latest collection of skateboard decks draws inspiration from the maximalist movement - an "aesthetic of excess" founded as a reaction against minimalism - with graphics that are crowded with a variety of colours, abstract shapes, and brush strokes which immediately capture your eye even among the other bold designs on our board wall. Printed by skater-owned and operated Control MFG in Canada using only the highest-quality Canadian maple, you know that Poetic Collective's decks are just as good to skate as they are to look at, but we don't blame you if you just want one for the wall.

Poetic Collective Caps and Beanies

The collection also features a strong selection of caps and beanies, with several 6-panel dad hat offerings and some cosy woollen beanies to help keep those winter chills at bay. We've already said that Poetic Collective is heavily influenced by the world of art, and nothing says that more clearly than their 'Art' 6-panel cap. With an unstructured 6-panel construction, this tongue-in-cheek design features a minimalist embroidery of the word 'Art', so you can subtly broadcast your artiness and sophistication to the world and, hopefully, score yourself a hot date to the art gallery. However, if you're a lowly philistine, Poetic's latest drop also features their classic logo cap so you don't have to worry about being called out for being an art poser.

Poetic Collective's signature beanies are the perfect accessory to help see out the rest of winter in style. The beanies are available in two colour variations - Black and Navy - and feature an adjustable cuff to provide the perfect fit, with twin side embroidery of 'Poetic Collective' and their iconic logo on opposing sides. Featuring a chunky woollen knit to provide premium insulation and flexibility, these beanies are guaranteed to provide maximum cosiness, like a warm hug from your Nan.

Poetic Collective Pants

Last but not least, Poetic's signature range of pants is without a doubt the best part of the collection. With a number of different styles on offer, there are trousers to suit every occasion. They all benefit from an elasticated waistband to help provide the perfect fit and maximum comfort without the need for a belt, as well as a stylish embroidery of Poetic's logo on the leg. The 'Painter' pant features a wide, straight-leg fit with an extremely useful utility pocket and iconic squared pockets helping them stand out from other trou on the market. Available in two different materials and colour variations - Black Corduroy and Light Blue Denim (as worn by certified trouser aficionado Didrik 'Deedz' Galasso in his new part, so you know they must be bangin') - Poetic's winter collection is guaranteed to have something for everyone.

Alongside the 'Painter' trousers, Poetic's latest drop features several colourways of their signature 'Sculptor' pants. The 'Sculptor' pants feature a wider fit than the 'Painter' pant and also come up shorter on the leg so they sit perfectly on your shoes. Made from durable canvas with a double knee construction for added durability, as well as the signature hammer loop and utility pocket, these premium work pants are the perfect skater-owned alternative to workwear brands like Dickies and Carhartt, with the added bonus of an elasticated waistband. The 'Sculptor' trou come in two bangin' colour variations: the sleek Black Canvas, and the stylish Navy with contrasting white stitching for additional flare. Buy now from CSC to stand out from the hordes of Polar trousers.
