In 1996, with one phone call, Spike Lee changed cap culture and New Era’s business model forever, when he asked the company to make him a red custom Yankees fitted – the first of its kind! At the time, Spike Lee didn’t know what a big deal it would become. All he wanted was a red hat. Almost 20 years later, New Era custom hats are incredibly popular and are a big part of the brand’s business. The New Era x Yankees Heritage Series pays homage to the red Yankees cap that started it all and, in the words of Spike Lee, to “the greatest pro sports team, the New York Yankees.” The caps in this collection feature a variety of Yankees hats, including the iconic red Yankees cap in buttersoft leather, a white 59FIFTY, and a navy blue Yankees cap. All of the hats display the 1996 World Series crest on the side, with Spike Lee satin lining inside. Each cap comes in a commemorative Heritage Series Box. If you want a red hat just like Spike Lee did, this collection is available now at DIPT. Don’t miss out.
