Be a wearer of many hats

Talk Shop: New Era

Baseball is remarkable and unlike any other sport in the world. It’s our nation’s past-time for Pete’s (Rose’s) sake, and what’s more, it’s provided one of the most prolific male head wear items ever. As summer goes into full-swing and we dust off the old sweaty ball cap from past years, maybe it’s time to consider tossing that one in the donation pile and checking out the official provider of head toppers for the MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA, the NCAA and others, New Era.

Find out more about the mad hatters of the sports world after the jump.

Started in the 1920s as a maker of fedoras and gatsbys, New Era now features collections based on style and fit such as snap back, fitted and stretch, and includes themes ranging from traditional NFL draft hats and throwback World Series caps, to entertainment favorites like superhero logos, to the Global Creative Project where artists from around the world get a blank hat and turn them into works of art.

If you need that perfect fit and you’re lucky enough to live near one of the 11 worldwide flagship New Era stores, you can get a hat sized or resized using their Tim Burton-esque shaper — creepy — or, if you’re not so blessed, you can get hats sized or resized online. Be careful though; flashing your colors can bring rivals to the surface like Parks and Rec’s Nick Offerman and The Office’s Craig Robinson. Watch their standoff video and daydream with us about watching a game over beers with them.
