Marking a monumental occasion for both KITH and New Era, the premium headwear provider has allowed the New York-based label to work on the New York Yankees authentic 59FIFTY fitted cap, accounting for the fist time ever that the hat will feature co-branding. In paying homage to the greatest franchise in sports history, it’s only right that the collaboration is an NY-specific affair. The limited edition fitted (250 units) will boast a gold-plated KITH emblem on the front and the iconic Yankees logo on the back. The side will then showcase the 1996 World Series logo, as per usual with New Era’s 59FIFTY caps, it has been comprised of 100% wool.
To further promote the New York comradery, various NY influentials such as Action Bronson, Joey Badass, Michael Rapaport, Victor Cruz and others have been chosen to display the high profile release. The KITH x New Era New York Yankees “World Series” 59FIFTY will be releasing this Sunday, June 5 at 10 a.m. EST exclusively at KITH Manhattan. For those lucky enough to purchase the hat, you will be given a voucher to in turn pick up the headwear at the KITH pop-up shop in Yankee Stadium on July 7, as well as tickets to that night’s game against the Los Angeles Angels.
