Founded in Buffalo, New York in 1920, New Era caps have been the official manufacturer of Major League Baseball's team caps since 1994. Not only have these New Era caps been worn on the field by professional baseball players, they have become an icon of both American culture and as a hat style. From celebrities such as Spike Lee and Jay-Z to the man on the street, New Era caps have become an integral part of the modern outfit. Originally, wearing one of these New Era caps was much like wearing your football team’s shirt, a way of representing your favorite team or the city that you are from. But it has moved on way beyond that. Now people around the world wear the NY hat, even though they may not have seen a Yankee’s game or know who Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle or Derek Jeter are. This is because of that special something that the New Era cap has. Village Hat Shop is proud to carry this monumental brand. Enjoy!
