Anyone heading to Lids.com today will notice that their prices have gone up $3 per fitted. AC's are now $37.99. Memorial Day and Stars & Stripes from LAST year have gone from $40 to $42.99. Even the janky fashion caps have gone up.

That's likely an across-the-board thing. Noticed that the MLB Shop is charging $37.99 for the Phillies throwback/alts.

Pretty hilarious pricing, given New Era phasing out U.S. production almost entirely, thereby saving them money. Passing that savings along to the consumer? Nope! Rolling Eyes

This was covered in a post in the "General" section, but the headwear industry is getting hit hard by Trump's tariffs. Fortune Magazine did an article this past October about it and now we are seeing the price increases.

LOLz @ New Era for trying to blame Trump for their greed.
