CASHMERE THOUGHTS!!!

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006 by






With the baseball season winding down and some of our favorite teams either kicking it up a notch or falling out the race We as a nation prepare for the start of the 2006 College and NFL seasons (I’m a huge Football Fan). Its time to refocus our priorities accordingly.
But not before New Era Drops this ridiculous cashmere hat Inspired By the Baseball Career of Roberto Clemente. The following is a press release from New era. We have only a small amount of these so hit us quick.

ROBERTO CLEMETE’S EXCLUSIVE NEW ERA 59FIFTY CAP

-Limited Edition Cap Designed By Sons To Benefit The Roberto Clemente
Foundation-

DERBY, NY (July 11, 2006) – New Era Cap Co., Inc., the premier, global
headwear designer, developer and manufacturer, unveiled its latest
“Capture the Flag” 59Fifty baseball cap honoring the late Hall of Famer
Roberto Clemente at the 77th Major League Baseball All-Star Game in
Pittsburgh, PA. The limited edition caps were designed by Luis and
Roberto Clemente Jr. with proceeds benefiting the Roberto Clemente
Foundation.

The limited edition caps will retail for $210 and will be available in
August 31st at PNC Park, NewEraCap.com, MLB.com, New Era New York and
select domestic and global retailers.

As a baseball icon, Clemente played his entire 18-year career with the
Pittsburgh Pirates where he amassed two World Championships, four
National League batting titles, 12 consecutive gold gloves, one National
League Most Valuable Player (MVP) award, a World Series MVP and the 11th
player to reach the 3000 hit mark to became the first Latino to be
inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame.

While many have recognized Clemente’s achievement on the field, his
philanthropic work and dedication to helping others in his native Puerto
Rico and other Latin American countries was an even bigger part of his
legacy. Clemente spent much of the off-season working to improve the
lives of people in need before he died in a plane crash en route to
Nicaragua where he was attempting to deliver much needed earthquake
relief in 1972.

Clemente’s New Era 59Fifty cap is a retrospective of his prolific
baseball career. The front of the black cashmere cap will feature a
gold image of Clemente with his hand over his heart flanked by four
silver bats denoting his four National League batting titles and a gold
outline of his number 21 encasing the 12 gold gloves he won. The side
panels will showcase his membership in the 3,000 Hit Club and his two
World Series Rings along with the Pittsburgh Pirates logo. The back
panel pays homage to the two World Series trophies he helped to win and
his Hall of Fame plaque. Inside the cap, there is gold piping with the
inscription “In Honor of Roberto Clemente.”

“It is only fitting that we honor the great Roberto Clemente with a
Capture the Flag cap while we celebrate Major League Baseball’s All-Star
Game in Pittsburgh,” said New Era’s Vice President of Global Marketing
John DeWaal. “We were thrilled to work with the Clemente Family to make
this cap a reality and are confident all baseball fans will appreciate
its meaningful design.”

Aloha all,

We just received our shipment of Stussy caps today. For me Stussy is all about the years I spent growing up. we used to have those yellow folders with the sports dudes on it. We used to fold it into quarters and practice our Stussy logo skills. That’s how much this clothing brand penetrated our brains. It was all about the reggae inspired skanking logo along with the familiar Stussy Script. Those was the days.. Anyway nuff ranting about bullshit. We got 7 styles in stock, Stussy skipped sizes so it starts from 7 and skips sizes up until 7 3/4.

Mahalo for your continued support.

For those of you that have been with us from day one you remember the first version of ashy that we did. This was one of our most successful shirts to date. So we thought that we should do a Summer into fall limited shirt for those who have supported us from day one. So we remixed the already hot design and threw some color in it to match existing hats as well as some of the upcoming customs we are expecting to come in. It was pretty fitting that one our first customers walked in the shop as I was trying to get a good shot of the shirts to post up on the blog. Big ups to dudes like this who keep us hyped to come to work everyday. He wanted to remain nameless!!! Thanks hommie for the assistance…
