This season, New Era create a new fabric for their Engineered fit headwear.
Taking a revolutionary approach to its new-season range for the MLB, New Era has added a fashion-forward twist to its classic headwear collection. New Era’s in-house design team worked alongside knit supplier Jack Beanie to develop the Air Knit process that produces a fabric that’s exclusive to the brand. Lightweight yarns are spun and engineered to give contrasting textures and a marl-effect finish that – when applied to headwear – gives a high-end product with a boundary-breaking aesthetic that works well dressed either up or down.
With a focus on three iconic baseball franchises – the New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox and
Los Angeles Dodgers – the Engineered Fit effect has been applied across three cap styles, including the 9FIFTY snapback, the 9FORTY curved visor as well as the on-trend trucker silhouette. The new collection comes in olive green, maroon and grey colour-ways and is available exclusively at European branches of Footlocker and online.
