NECT’s Top 20 New Era’s of 2011

On behalf of the whole Nectalk team I’ve rounded up all of our bloggers favorite New Era caps of 2011 and narrowed it down to a TOP 20. Weather it be classic 59fifties or 9fifty snapbacks we tried to choose a variety of styles and brands. Being that it was extremely difficult to select a top 20 out of 1000’s of fly releases in 2011 we didn’t rush things and took our time in the selection process collaboratively among all Nectalk staff members. There are more than a few hats in this list that any New Era head would love to have in their collection. We know not everyone will agree with these picks or the rankings so don’t take it personal!

We had a ton of fun in the process and we hope you enjoy what we came up with!!  Thanks to all the true New Era heads out there who follow NECT on the regular. Your viewership and site interaction are what makes us great and keeps the site alive! Stay tuned, 2012 brings some massive plans for the site that will surly leave you coming back for more! Without further ado enjoy our staffs Top 20 for 2011!
