686 Outerwear 2009-2010

14 Feb, 2009

Whether you want crazy prints, plaids, solids or brights…686 has it all this year.  You can even find yourself in the limited edition carry on of the snaggletooth jacket back for more fun on the slopes.  
For 2009-2010, 686 has partnered with New Balance and Krew as well as continuing the relationship with Levi’s.   With the plexus series, they are bringing the boa back into the outerwear.  
It’s refreshing to walk into 686 because I can always spot a couple pieces that I like straight up.  I still prefer the men’s outerwear to the women’s, just like the length and being able to wear it than be worried about it not wearing me enough.    
The popular Levi series is back

It’s the evil twin brother of last year’s snaggletooth (my favorite jacket ever) and Patchwork Tooth is a little crazy keeping it all fun in the family.

    Hey Ethan,

    It is in the catalog and I’m sure will be at various shops when the 09-10 686 gear starts to hit the stores in late summer/early fall. The color is yellow and has the white stripe, red, then black with the yellow in between.
