What do you know about NCAA? Does the name Wisconsin Badgers ring any bell? When you see 47 x 686 do you think it means 32242? Let me start from the beginning, then: ’47 is a premium sportswear brand while 686 is a top snowboard apparel brand. When they sat at a table brainstorming about what could have the maximum impact if they collaborated, National Collegiate Athletic Association emerged. The licensing agreement among this association of College teams and ’47 would have been brought to mountain slopes for the first time, thanks to 686, so both brands worked on this unique opportunity. We saw Wisconsin Badgers on this blog already: do you remember the Rodeo Cuff Knit beanie of this team that I posted last March? Today Mariafederica D is showing us a Wisconsin Tundra hoodie and a Union Face mask of the same team. With its fleece lining together with Ergonomic Vader™ Vents there is no better way to protect your face when weather conditions are extreme, while representing for your College team. The hoodie is soft just like every other hoodie from this brand but here a raglan cut with camouflage sleeves steals the show. Another detail not to miss is that raw edge kangaroo pocket and hems that is evidence of the custom cut of this fleece, also available for every other team of the NCAA part of this collaboration. ’47 got us used here on The Maxiemillion, review after review, to progressive designs and fine craftsmanship and as you can see in this team work with 686 things are only getting better. What’s next for ’47? Curved visor snapbacks and fresh summer apparel? You bet! Pictures courtesy of Maurizio Milesi.
