New Era’s February Commemorative Cap, created exclusively for the New York Knicks and Madison Square Garden, pays homage to the history of the Knicks’ franchise and the sport of basketball. The navy and orange plaid wool used on the crown of the cap replicates the suiting used by Manhattan’s early aristocracy and the iconic “Father Knickerbocker.” The luxurious perforated lamb leather visor mimics the look and feel of a basketball. The cap was completed with the team’s current logo on the front, linking the Knicks’ past, present, and future. The end result is a cap whose level of luxury is unmatched in headwear. .
