Today, we are going to introduce you to one of the biggest names in the hat and baseball cap industry, as well as one of their coolest kid’s hats – the New York Yankees Woodland Camouflage New Era K59Fifty Fitted Hat. Your young man (or your young woman) will love this hat, particularly if they're a New York Yankees fan. The camouflage makes it fun but also perfect for the next time you and your miniature hunter go out to the woods in search of sustenance to bring home to the family – even if it means stopping at the grocery store because you failed to bag the big one.
Kids and Their Hats
Kids wear hats for many reasons: warmth, protection from the sun (for both their skin and their eyes), just because they like the style, or because caps are cool. There's nothing like donning a cap to represent your favorite team when you attend a game or just when you're out and about with your buddies. Kids hats are here to stay, so they might as well wear one of the best.
Before we talk about the hat in question, let's look at the company who makes it – New Era.
The New Era Hat Company
After borrowing $1000 from Rose, his sister, a man named Ehrnhardt Koch put together a little company in 1920, calling it the "E. Koch Cap Company. The building in which this tiny company began was in Buffalo, New York, where the company is still headquartered. Some 60,000 caps were produced by the company in 1920 alone.
Their first MLB contract (Major League Baseball) was with the Cleveland Indians in 1934. The Brooklyn style cap, the 59Fifty, was created through redesign and modernization of the old-style baseball cap in 1954. There were 20 teams in the MLB in 1965, and New Era was supplying caps for half of them. With 30 teams now in the MLB, New Era is licensed exclusively for MLB on-field baseball cap production.
When Chris Koch took over as CEO in 2001, changes were on the horizon. The company acquired rights for the NFL (National Football League) to produce caps with football logos. New Era even became the official cap provider of the Big Bash League – Australian cricket – in 2013. Having exclusive rights for the NBA, NFL, and MLB simultaneously, New Era became the first headwear company to do so.
Things have continued to improve through the years for New Era as more and more styles keep hitting the shelves.
