686’s Mike West blogs on the 686 factory

02 Jun, 2009

Yesterday I was given a heads up on the blog that Mike West is doing, documenting his life as he owns and operates 686 Outerwear and apparel.  
Scrolling through the blog, I found one post that really stands out because it shows the best look into an overseas factory that I have seen to-date.  From the photos to descriptions, Mike really lays out the process and work involved in the 686 factory in China.  
Head over to Hypebeast to check out his blog post or just click on the swine flu masks.

It’s great to see how people who have access to so much, with just a blog can show the world about what goes behind the scenes.  I’m already a fan of 686 outerwear and every year I continue to support them because of the quality and people behind the scenes.
