Man Fashion: New Era Caps for Fashionista Like You

When it comes to summer, the new era caps are the most popular choice of hip hop and sports fanatics. So what are new era caps basically?

The new era caps are the largest sports-licensed headwear company in the United States. The company is the premier cap provider for MLB, as well as a number of NBA and NHL franchises, plus a handful of major collegiate athletic programs.

Before we go further to commit our money into this fanatic caps, let look at what are the primary buying tips.

One of the first things that you should check is the quality of workmanship of your New Era cap. Examine the top of the hat and look at the top button. The button should be centered with the seams. If it is not, there is a good possibility that the cap is a fake.

In addition, check the quality of the stitching on the cap. On all authentic New Era Caps, the stitching will be smooth, dense, and tight. A good way to examine the quality of the stitching is to check out the stitching of the New Era logo. If it is uneven, crooked and/or seems to contain gaps between stitches, the hat is most likely a fake. Since the logo is one of the top branding factors, you can bet that New Era gets this right every time.

Next, check out the profile of your New Era 59Fifty fitted cap. The crown should be high and rounded. Inferior quality, imitation caps almost always tend to have a much lower profile and can actually look a bit flat across the crown.

You should also examine the New Era tag that is stitched on the inside of the cap. The edges should be stitched evenly, and the tag should lie smooth with no bunching at the edges. Crooked stitching that goes beyond boundaries most likely indicates a fake. You should also check for the New Era hologram on the underside of the brim of the hat. If your cap is missing this, it is probably an imitation.

In short, please put some common sense, time to examine these new era caps before you shelll out your hard earned money.

Honorable Mention...

Sarah Jessica Parker has been wearing these Nicholas Kirkwood shoes all over the place promoting Sex and the City 2, and I can see why. They're beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Last time I thought pink and blue looked well together was when I was a little girl, I guess I'll have to rethink that.
 Adding these beauties to my already infinite dream wish list...

Friday's FASHION for thought


sick of the same ol' blooms & blossoms as spring's go-to print? kick it up a notch & channel a Scotch, a la Jessica and Jane (of seasofshoes). a print that can clothe Kurt Cobain & Alexander McQueen is good in my book. 

i'm not much of a colorful wardrobe type person, although i know that i can't just wear black and grey everyday... SO i'm really loving the marni wedges on Sharne Scott and MAC's latest pucker collection, appropriately called "TO THE BEACH". shoes, lips, and fingernails in bright hues will do just the trick.

and on a final note, it's been all over the blogosphere that voluptuous super model Crystal Renn was a little on the "thin" side at Chanel's latest show. says her Ford model agent, Renn "isn't trying to be thin...her size fluctuates from 10-14." this woman is gorgeous & EMBRACES her curves. 

gotta love it.

have a fabulous memorial day wknd!
