NECTalk’s Top 20 New Era Releases of 2014

In 1996, when Spike Lee made the game-changing call to New Era requesting a red Yankees fitted, he didn’t know that he would make such a huge impact on fashion and culture – setting the trend for the modern-day custom cap and changing New Era’s business model forever. Things in the cap world came full circle in 2014, with New Era releasing the Heritage Series collection, paying homage to the iconic red Yankees cap that Spike Lee originally requested back in 1996. 2014 in general was one of the greatest years we’ve seen for New Era releases, with a wide variety of headwear to choose from that featured many different styles, designs and licenses. It was a year that saw hats that stayed fresh and stylish while guarding the galaxy; caps that came from a galaxy far, far away ; and even On-Field headwear that came straight out of the frying pan! With so many great New Era caps this year, it was a challenge for us to decide on our Top 20.  As the year has come to a fresh close, we can’t wait to see what 2015 holds. We don’t know what will drop this year, but we do know that 2014 is going to be a tough year to top! Do you agree with our list? What were some of your favorite New Era releases of 2014? Behold!
