Since our launch in 2007, Strictly Fitteds has been the number one destination for fitted baseball cap news and culture. It's a daily operation. With over 10,000 posts published, we have featured hundreds of brands worldwide. One of the most common comments we get from our readers, is about when our own NEW ERA fitted cap will be released. Now, close to the eve of our 5th Anniversary have our first official 59Fifty hat. It has been a long time coming, most definitely. Patience and relentlessness are well rewarded.
The official on-field cap of Major League Baseball, NEW ERA CAP COMPANY maintains a lion share of market with over 30 million caps sold each year. NEW ERA's signature seal is badge of honor for many aspiring brands. Now it's our time to take the stage.
Producing your own fitted cap doesn't rank up there with healing the sick or walking on water, but, there is a indescribable thrill that comes with bringing a concept to life.
For this special occasion, we choose to create a cap that mimics our brand identity down to the exactly color way of Navy, Beige and Caramel. Taking things a step further, we decided to upgrade the materials. The crown is constructed of a middle weight linen. The bill and top button are a smooth ultra suede. The under bill isn't left out of the mix. We used a Green Satin to finish this piece off.
Limited to just 72 pieces, this fitted cap will be part of a Friends and Family release, slated for February 2012. We haven't lost love for our readers. A lucky few will be owners of this special drop. We will keep you posted as the release date draws closer.
This is another milestone for Strictly Fitteds. We feel both proud and privileged for the opportunity. Special thanks and a SF salute to Cal Lawson, Katherine Kulczyk, and Derek Pershyn at NEW ERA.
