Brand: Fear of God x New Era

Buy: The Essential 59Fifty fitted and Essentials 950 RC caps will launch on August 20 via stockists like New Era's website, while the Fear of God Essentials 59Fifty hits Fear of God's site the same day.

Editor's Notes: Recently, there's been more to Fear of God than mere clothing drops. Its Seventh Collection, admittedly rich with enviable outerwear and easy lounge garms, more importantly spoke to a deeper cultural consciousness. This carries through to Fear of God's latest New Era collaboration, styled by founder Jerry Lorenzo's kids and some pals.

Lorenzo frequently pays homage to the pioneers who blazed trails before him; once again, the men of the Negro League have inspired Lorenzo's output. This New Era offering pays tribute to Lorenzo's father, Jerry Manuel, a first-round draft pick for the 1972 Detroit Tigers, alongside the Negro League Museum, which will receive some of the proceeds of the Fear of God snapback seen alongside the New Era gear.

The Detroit Tigers' colors inspire one cream-colored cap, but other headgear borrow their shades from rival teams like the Dodgers. Throughout, Fear of God's script "F" logo mingles with New Era branding, but the Negro League snapback — inspired by the KC Monarchs — sports larger patches and text that commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Negro League.

All of the caps, as clean and appealingly unfettered as they are, tie into Lorenzo's heritage without undermining Fear of God's vision of street-leaning luxury. They're more approachable than the label's pricier mainline fare, sure, but all of the goods share an appreciation for the founder's heritage, lending an authentic edge to the accessible accessories.
