686 has been around for over 15 years creating progressive technical apparel inspired directly from LA and mountain lifestyle roots. Years ago, 686 began collaborating with companies to create a collection called TIMES, where the collaboration is the invention of a new product.
To help celebrate the 15th Crystal Anniversary, 686 teamed up with New Era to create a collection of products that combine street style and technical function for something truly unique. The limited edition line of outerwear features the first waterproof and breathable 59FIFTY cap that conveniently attaches to the hood of the jackets.
Taking style cues from both current and historical urban influences, the TIMES collection features an exclusive 686 vintage baseball woven jacquard and printed fabrications, along with custom New Era 59FIFTY accented trims and linings. The coordinating pants, with their custom New Era key chain accessory, complete the ensemble for any true rider and tastemaker.
It is nice seeing New Era thinking outside the box with collaborations such as this one and the DC collaborations. After the jump some more pictures of the 686 x New Era Times Collection.
