New Era has collaborated with New York City's Amongst Friends to create the New Era 'Crossing Borders' fitted cap. The hat features the flags of the U.S., Canada, Germany, and England. 

These countries are the only ones that house a flagship New Era store within their boarders, and the hat can only be bought at those stores. Check out more of the internationally-friendly New Era 'Crossing Boarders' cap at the link below.
