Fly Season: KITH x New Era - Yankees x Mets Subway Series Collection


As a native New Yorker and lover of all things baseball and New Era, Lord knows I used to spend way too much time in that store, going crazy with my purchases on fitted hats. This habit got so crazy at one point (due to the discount I was getting there) that I was buying hats and forgetting that I had them in the stash. KITH dropped a very dope collabo last year with New Era for my favorite team, the New York Yankees. It was a clean 59FIFTY cap that seriously went with every outfit you could think of. So this year, when we got word of a new collection dedicated to both the Yankees and Mets, in kind of a Subway Series showdown of caps, we were more than excited. Each team cap is going to have three styles, for six total between the two. Two of them will be rendered in their traditional styles, while two will sport reverse color-ways of either team, with all four of these coming finished with the 2000 World Series patch in tow.

The last two are limited to only 144 units each, per team. So you’ll really have to get out there to buy, if you’re serious about getting one or a couple, for that matter. The Mets cap is going to denote the 30th anniversary of the ’86 World Series, while the Yankees cap will have the same for the ’96 World Series (…for which I cried for, when they won. Don’t judge.) They’ll both come equipped with the KITH rose-gold metal plate on the front, with the Series patch on the right side. And just for aesthetic measure, each cap comes in a fresh custom display case, along with game tickets to the Subway Series next month. Very hard to top that. 

For those interested in buying, both anniversary caps drop on 7/29, and will only be available in-stores. The Yankees cap will be available at KITH Brooklyn, while the Mets will be available at KITH Manhattan. Customers will pick up their caps at the KITH one-day pop-up shop in Queens at Citi Field on 8/2 and in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium on 8/3. These dates are the gameday’s for the tickets that come with the caps themselves. Both pop-up shops will be stocking the other four caps in limited quantity as well, so don’t sleep on picking those up. The official date for the release of the 2000 World Series caps is this Saturday, 7/30 at both KITH locations, as well as KithNYC.com. You can preview the caps being sported in the lookbook by the Yankee set-up pitcher Dellin Betances and the Mets ace Jacob deGrom. Get to a KITH shop soon to cop one of these, while they last.

Get yours..
