686 Outerwear 2008-2009

21 May, 2008

I walked away from SIA, totally stoked on 686. They brought something new to the table this year by putting boa into the high end outerwear and in terms of colors/patterns…they gave everyone something. You can still get your favorite jacket in plain colors, bright colors or crazy patterns…you have a choice.

Each year 686 does a collaboration with other companies to produce a limited edition outerwear set. This year is Levi’s. I was hesitant about the Canadian Tuxedo myself but I’ve seen Gag’s wearing it in person and it is pretty sweet looking.

I’m finally putting up some of the 686 pictures I took at SIA as well as some catalog images where I point out each one and the color.

I tried my best to identify each piece of outerwear in these photos as accurately as possible. Please understand there is possibility for human error in these photos as I mark them with what they are. If I did make a mistake, please leave a comment and I’ll correct it.

I will be updating this as I have time to scan in images. I’ll try to scan in images that are not in these photos like the Plexus Series which features BOA.

    I want the manual fiend yellow pants. Although I don’t think it’s quite loud enough for me (at least not in combination with my red and black snow-school jacket).
