New Era and Nautica's Inaugural Line Boasts One-of-a-Kind Headwear

The first-ever collaboration between stylish headwear purveyor New Era and American apparel brand Nautica offers consumers a collection of sustainable vintage hat designs. The partnership is divided into three capsules — the 'Hydro Race,' the 'Scuba,' and the 'Color Block.'

To create this very colorful selection of products, New Era repurposed retro Nautica jackets. As a result, not only did some aesthetic sensibilities bleed into the final product but the vintage hat designs also subscribe to notions of sustainability — an ever-pressing concern within the manufacturing industry and in the modern consumer mindset.

Due to its nature of production, each piece in the New Era x Nautica collaborative capsule is one-of-a-kind. The caps' fashionable exteriors feature an eclectic and stylish use of patches, labels, as well as pockets and hardware.
