New Era has released blank caps in 13 different colorways! Only thing is...

They are "umpire" caps... They are said to fit just like a 59Fifty, but have a brim of 55mm, as opposed to the 68mm brim on a 59Fifty. These are PERFECT for customizing though, and are available in great colorways.

What do you guys think about the smaller brim though?

i can't see how anyone that is use to wearing new era caps is going to feel comfortable with the shorter brim. it just wouldn't look right.

I think its a novel idea... but New Era is still protecting their branding because no real streetwear brand will pick these up and run with them for customizing. Good idea on NE's part... but $14-$16 each at 600pcs minimums for custom caps is crazy. Respect due nevertheless... they earned it through years of perfecting their craft.

I just don't see these "specialty" caps filling any gaps in the customized realm. At least not for true fitted fans. They'll have to anti-up to the New Era custom pricing and do it right.
