686 teamed up with artist and member of Linkin Park, Mike Shinoda to design a collaborative outerwear piece that will be released in a limited quantity this month. In part 1, 686′s Mike West and Mike Shinoda talk about how the collaboration came about and how they reached their big idea for the 686 x Mike Shinoda Parka.

From 686:

Everything we do at 686 resonates with a purpose. Over the past two decades, we’ve explored new things well outside the industry norm. Hopefully we’ve been able to open some eyes while remaining true to our beliefs as an independent brand. Working with Mike Shinoda is a prime example of two like-minded people coming together for the purpose of bringing new ideas to the table check the process how this 686SHINODA came about.

The limited edition parka will be available Friday Nov 15 at Zumiez.com with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Music for Relief.
