New Era Japan‘s Dragon Ball Z collaborations range from golf-centric drops to graphic-loaded apparel drops. The duo’s latest team-up boasts a little of both, serving up a plethora of colorful caps and branded T-shirts emblazoned with a host of the animated series’ fan-favorite characters, occasionally mashed-up with New Era graphics.
A mixture of headgear for adults and kids is on hand this time, yielding a variety of thematic graphic accents atop plenty of classic New Era cap styles. These range from a 9FIFTY cap with side-stitched “NEW ERA” branding — complete with the Great Saiyaman posing in place of the “A” — to 9THIRTY hats realized with a monochrome Dende patch and matching logo to signature 59FIFTY headwear graced by Super Saiyan Goku in mid-teleport.
Elsewhere, Majin Buu lifts the classic New Era logo aloft on a youth-sized 9FORTY hat and a classic bit of Kid Gohan artwork is placed atop an adult-sized 9FORTY complete with circular branding. A quartet of T-shirt styles round out the seasonal capsule, offering full-length prints of Goku, Great Saiyaman, Gohan and Majin Buu in action against more logos, including a hat-wearing Dragon Ball Z accent.
All of the SS21 adult and child Dragon Ball Z styles are now available on New Era Japan’s website.
Recently, the cap brand introduced a GORE-TEX PACLITE capsule just ahead of summer.
