In celebration of a landmark event in MLB history, a commemorative New Era collection shines a light on the then struggling New York Giants’ monumental move from the Big Apple to San Francisco during the 1950s. New Era brings this slice of history to life with a sophisticated range of apparel and headwear that charts the team’s switch to California through use of colour and high-end design.
At the heart of the collection are two elevated takes on the low-profile 59FIFTY that boast a range of luxury touches, including embroidered primary team logos, a Kelly green satin undervisor and a leather sweatband. The first headwear style features a classic New York Giants logo in yellow, while – to signify the team’s arrival on the West Coast – the San Francisco Giants version makes use of the shade of orange the team adopted upon arrival. The end result is two, truly collectable caps.
This cap pairing is teamed up with an apparel range that includes a standout varsity jacket with applique logo and a gold interior lining that mirrors the design of the headwear. In addition, a rugged marl grey crew top with contrast team wordmark and heavyweight tee with embroidered team logo bolster a collection that captures one of MLB’s most memorable moments.
The full collection is available in stores and at Neweracap.co.uk from September 2018.
