As a part of luxury fashion house Gucci's latest Fall/Winter 2018 collection, the label introduced a GG Supreme Patch Cap that boasts an MLB team's signature logo. This piece is rooted from Gucci's Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, and his admiration of the team cap and team.
The New York Yankees sees its motif across the luxe headwear and it is crafted from the original monogram canvas design that recalls the house's bag series. At the front of the cap is the large NY Yankees motif in an off-white color that gives it a vintage aesthetic. It is complete with a back tab for adjustments and a canvas browband inside to give it a comfortable fit.
