The New Era x Yankees Heritage Series – Tipping Our Caps To Spike Lee


As hat collectors and enthusiasts, we all speak with our New Era caps to represent our favorite characters, artists, brands and teams, and, most importantly, to fly our own flag, to show how we feel and who we are! New Era hats are now made in countless colors, styles, and designs. From caps representing our beloved teams in almost any colorway imaginable – such as flashy black and gold Blue Jays hats and neon Brewers fitteds – to the classic navy blue on-field Yankees 59FIFTY, the wide selection of choices available is almost endless! There are even caps encrusted with crystals, adorned with authentic Wookiee fur, or constructed with shiny metallic material that would make Tony Stark proud. And let’s not forget one of this year’s biggest releases: a hat embroidered with a bacon strip logo, because the MiLB Iron Pigs believe even the New Era on-field 59FIFTY is better with bacon! The love and enthusiasm for New Era and the brand’s wide variety of headwear has given birth to a thriving cap collector/enthusiast community, where people from all over the world and all walks of life have made lasting friendships bonding over the New Era brand. People trade and show off their caps, and share stories behind their favorite hats. Some have even created their own collaborative caps! Many collectors refer to this as living the New Era lifestyle, making them feel part of a Fitted Family. But would we have such a wide variety of New Era caps available, and would this thriving cap enthusiast community exist, if Spike Lee had never made that call to New Era CEO Chris Koch back in 1996, to request a custom red Yankees hat?

Provided the perfect setting, New Era was sure to be in attendance. Their booth, located nearby brands such as HustleGang, Akoo, Diem, File, amongst others, was set up in black and white New Era paraphernalia which helped make the hats stand out even more.

New Era being the lifestyle brand that they are you could count on the hats to be accompanied by New Era lifestyle products. The upcoming collections will see a lot more backpacks, with New Era providing us with bags ranging from functional, which include a hat clip, and bags more fashionable, which include bags completed with a gold trim design. All together, they also have canvas bags, duffle bags, and miniature luggage styled bags. You can also see close ups of new release socks, belts, wallets, etc. Being held from July 21-22, the Jarvits Center in New York City our recap of the event can be reviewed after the jump. Los Angeles just played host to the trade show which recently wrapped up and their next stop will be arriving in Las Vegas within the coming month.
