Leopard print, Lagerfeld, and luxury aren’t the the first things that come to most people’s minds when they think of a baseball cap, but things have started to change. In 1996, when Spike Lee first asked New Era to make him a red custom Yankees fitted, it began to usher the New Era brand outside the realm of being just another “sportswear company.” This opened the doors to many different styles and designs of New Era caps being produced, featuring everything from countless custom color combinations of professional and college sports teams, to comic/cartoon characters, and streetwear brands. Recently, a new cap trend has started to emerge: the high-end couture New Era cap. The baseball cap has made its way from the field to the streets, and now to the catwalk.

At NecTalk, we know there are die-hard female New Era cap collectors and enthusiasts out there who love, wear and show off their hats. However, it cannot be denied that the baseball cap – fitted or snapback – is a headwear accessory worn far more by men than women. We live in an era in which boundaries in fashion have been blurred and the rules and stereotypes for how a man or a woman should dress in society are no longer being followed as strictly as they once were. This can be seen in pop culture, music, clothing stores and in the streets, which has got us wondering: why do we still not see many women wearing baseball caps? Perhaps women feel that caps are a sports/fashion accessory associated with being worn predominantly by male athletes and young men. Or maybe there aren’t enough caps to appeal to women’s tastes? Or is it possible women prefer other styles of hats to the baseball cap? We aren’t exactly sure, but being that we are the #1 leading New Era-related cap community in the world, we would love to see more women wearing caps and by the end of this article, we hope that we will have inspired some of you, too!
