Bristol Studio x New Era
Born of a deep nostalgia for the 59Fifty and its place in our culture circa early-2000s. Our capsule with New Era consists of two 59Fifty models and a heavyweight knit beanie. The fitted caps both look back, paying homage to the style of the early 2000s, while also looking forward by taking a deconstructed approach to this timeless product. Our two 59Fifties are mirror images of one another – one being classic, inspired by the most iconic fitted cap of all-time: The New York Yankees. The other fitted being more avant-garde in its deconstruction of this style by highlighting all the hidden details and construction elements that make this a special product.
The heavyweight knit beanie also looks to the early 2000s through both fit and proportion. Its shape is enlarged and exaggerated to draw upon the baggy style of that era. Both are available via the Bristol Studio webstore in limited quantities.
