Custom New York Yankees Cap
This beautiful Yankees cap has been customised with a handmade Gold Plated emblem. The original yankees logo stitching has been replaced with the gold plated badge. The emblem is also detachable so it can be re-plated in gold or change of finish at any time. The Back Buckle of the adjustment strap can also be plated but at an additional cost.
On “Empire State of Mind,” JAY-Z rapped, “I made the Yankees hat more famous than a Yankee can.” It’s a stunt, a boast typical in hip-hop that need not be examined literally. But he was on to something, even if he alone isn’t solely responsible for the ubiquity of the Yankees fitted. It’s bigger than a baseball team, somehow bigger than 27 World Series. Even for natives, it’s bigger than root, root, rooting for the hometeam. That logo and that hat have come to represent New York City as a whole, a wearable point of pride and symbol of aspiration that’s spread across the world. On this episode of “Why It’s Cool,” we’ll examine how part of a team uniform became one of the most iconic accessories around.
The interlocking “N-Y” insignia was originally designed by Tiffany & Co. as part of a medal given to John McDowell, an officer of the NYPD who was shot in the line of duty in 1877. To this day, no one knows exactly how, but the Yankees adopted it for themselves in 1909, when they were still known as the Highlanders. This was four years before they’d become the New York Yankees.
