UPDATE 7/24/15: KITH designer Ronnie Fieg has unveiled the two new styles made in collaboration with the New York Yankees and New Era on his Instagram. The first is very similar to the original release between the trio, but the gold KITH plate on the front is traded out for a white patch with a stencil of the brand's name. The second is a classic New York Yankees cap with the team logo on the front and a small KITH patch on the back where the MLB logo typically sits. KITH is also releasing two commemorative logo tees with the brand's name overlaid the pinstripes and solid grey seen on the Yankees' home and away jerseys. All styles are available now. Find detailed release info below.
KITH's original collaboration with the New York Yankees was a very limited affair with only 250 of the World Series caps released. So, news of a second installment between KITH, the Yankees, and New Era comes as extremely welcome news.
The second part of the collaboration is set to include another two new styles of the baseball cap that features co-branded elements. The logos will also be applied in traditional fashion to uphold the classic look of the Yankees hat.
While the brands' first effort included a bunch of extra goodies, like tickets to a Yankees game and access to a KITH pop-up shop at Yankee stadium, that don't appear to be included here, this is still a collaboration that should not be slept on.
Only 100 pairs of each caps will be made available at KITH's Manhattan location on release day, this Friday, July 24, at 10 a.m. EST. KITH will also make limited quantities of the hats available exclusively to its newsletter subscribers, which mean you should sign up here immediately. Subscribers will be sent a link to buy the caps on July 24 around 11 a.m. EST.
After the first 100 are gone on release day, KITH will continue to sell only 10 per style per day, while supplies last. International retailers, including Colette, Dover Street Market London, Slam Jam, Nano Universe Shibuya, and United Arrows & Sons, will also receive a very small amount of the hats on Aug. 1. The hats will cost $59.50, look for images of each style to be released soon.
