With the weather finally showing signs of brightening up, and the rainclouds leaving us temporarily (if only for a VERY short time), we've come together with New Era to create a series of three 9FIFTY snapbacks from their heritage driven Cooperstown Collection, exclusively available at size?.
The Cooperstown moniker stems from the fabled story that Baseball originated in this small village in New York in 1839, and the logo's visible on caps from this collection hark back to the original emblems used throughout these earlier years of baseball, as opposed to the polished, much cleaner versions you might be used to seeing on the 59Fifty fitted range.
Each cap is made of premium flecked Melton Cloth, where the process of fulling the wool thickens the material out, in turn giving it the characteristic of being a very hard wearing medium which will scarcely fray and unravel. The coloured flecks woven into the wool add that bit more character into the already intriguing texture, with tonal New Era flags embroidered into the left side-panel. To finish off, the classic team logos of the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees sit on the front panel in felt, in a contrasting off-white hue.
The size? Exclusive New Era Vintage Wool collection is available online
and in selected size? stores.
