If you are like me, the idea of wearing a leather baseball cap never crossed your mind. Up until recently, it certainly never crossed mine. However, when the opportunity to check out the MLB Spike Lee Leather Exclusive 59FIFTY fitted cap from New Era Cap Company came about, I suddenly found myself liking the idea.
Since I am a fan of Spike Lee as well as New Era I figured I could don this fashion sports hybrid of a cap even though I knew I would catch hell from at least one San Francisco Giants fan for appearing like I was a supporter of the New York Yankees (which I’m not, by the way). This, of course, happened, but I couldn’t have cared less because I knew I was looking sharp and that was all that mattered at the time. That’s the power of this cap. The Scarlet leather is by no means subtle and neither is the bold 1996 World Series insignia on the right side of the cap. This cap is made to make a statement and it does so with ease.
Like all New Era caps, the MLB Spike Lee Leather Exclusive 59FIFTY fitted cap is beautifully made and expertly finished. Every detail, from the red satin lining to the “Spike Lee Joint” sweatband, is simply essential and all part of what makes this hat an instant collector’s item. This Spike Lee Joint is available in Scarlet, Navy, or White leather for $99.99, or Navy or Scarlet wool for $39.99.
