New Era unveils new fantastic on-field NFL fitted caps

So simple, so fresh.

I’ve been critical of New Era for their OK looking on-field caps that they unveiled in April. But these new ones that they have on their Facebook page is a huge upgrade.

A couple teams like the Cowboys and Bears have alternate logos, but overall, this is a really great decision by New Era.

Also, it appears that the underbrim of the caps will also be the team’s alternate color, which adds a nice flavor to it.

What do you think about these new lids? I think I might get one now. Check them all out here.
