KITH has joined forces with headwear icon New Era. In collaboration with the New York Mets and New York Yankees, the classic 59FIFTY piece will be delivered in limited quantities to commemorate the teams’ Subway Series rivalry. The offering is comprised of six styles in total with the first four paying homage to the 2000 World Series. Two pieces will be offered in their respective classic styles while the next pair will mix one team’s colorway with the opposing squad’s logo.
Closing out the range, the last two caps celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Mets winning the World Series in 1986 and the 20th anniversary of the Yankees reigning victorious in 1996 World Series. Each will sport a KITH-branded rose gold metal plate on each front along with each team’s World Series patch on the right, New Era flags on the left and team branding on the back. These last two pieces will be limited to 144 units of each and will be housed in custom display cases that are complemented with tickets to a game within this year’s Subway Series. Those who purchase the Mets cap will receive tickets to the game on August 2 at Citi Field while those who add the Yankees cap to their personal collection will get tickets to the August 3 game located at Yankee Stadium.
The duo of anniversary caps will launch on July 29 as the Mets cap will be available at KITH Manhattan and the Yankees edition at KITH Brooklyn. The collection’s 2000 World Series caps will release on July 30 in-store at KITH’s Manhattan and Brooklyn locations as well as online.
