As we dig in for those dog days of summer, there is no denying that it’s hot af out there and we all have to do what we can to stay cool. Understanding that there is a level of cool obtained (both figuratively and literally) by rocking a hat, the good folks at New Era understand this and have introduced a new silhouette designed for comfort and style.

With this new look, Lids and New Era introduced several new collections with the Classic MLB team colours. Cleverly named the New Era retro crown hat, the caps come in both a Fitted and Snap Back model. Taking its design inspiration from the classic shape and heritage of this “back in the day” baseball hats, you know from the birth of the sport, with a relaxed crown creating a nice worn-in shape. No more breaking in that brim. It’s essentially the perfect blend of perfectly formed structured cap with the casual comfort of a dad hat. Can you say best of both worlds?

To showcase the versatility of the new collection we took the hats out into the world to play a casual game of catch. Of course, all the while maintaining our fly as hell look.
