“ Manufacturer: New Era / Type: Casual Wear / Gender: Male „
New Era is the biggest headwear company in the world and its hats can be seen everywhere. Originating in New York, it has since spread as the official headwear sponsor for the NBA, MLB and NHL sports teams as a maker of official on-field baseball caps, associated branded headwear and casual hats. They have many designs for various needs as they expanded simply from baseball caps some time ago, meaning that their headwear is the most predominant throughout the entire headwear industry.
==Core Visor Tee==
Coming out in 2010, the Core Visor Tee follows the same formula as New Era's Core Basic tee, however is different in how it is presented. The tops come in a variety of various different colours (all ones which are found in standard headwear they put out) and features a frontal design which has a screen-print, but then rubber-like plastisol over the top for added details based upon the stick found on the visor of their 59Fifty fitted caps. It differs from the Core Basics as its the letters which are done in plastisol, rather than the outer sections.
On a recent visit to New Era's London store, my girlfriend allowed me to choose a t-shirt and was kind enough to pay for it too! Of all the ones that on display, I went for the scarlet-on-white top from them as I felt that I'd got enough red tops, but was still very into the colour for the season and so just wanted touches of it (rather than another bright red top as I've had as of recent times). Having already owned New Era's 'Core Basic tee', I felt that this was a nice step up and one that I'd want to have in my wardrobe.
Visually, the top is one that you're not likely to miss. If you know New Era then you'll recognise what they're doing here immediately and so it's bound to grab attention to wearers. I felt that it was better than the Core Basic in that its main features are highlighted with the high-rise plastisol, rather than the coloured parts in this case. For me, it took away from the messiness that the other seemed to have and so is likely to appeal to those who like their tops to be crisp. A nice added feature of the tee is the fact that the New Era flag logo is given on the left side, just as it is on their caps and this just tops it all off.
So far, the t-shirt has done well in regards to how it hasn't shown any signs of losing its whiteness in any way whatsoever and with any white tee this is all you want to see as having it lose this ultimately means that its freshness has gone and isn't worth owning anymore. One thing that must be noted though is that ironing it is quite a task with such a large plastisol design through the middle means that you just have to go around this and you have to take care not to effect it in any way - otherwise it'll start to lose the tacky grip from the top itself. I'm yet to see anything in the way of the front losing the stickiness and so it seems as though it withstand whatever I bring its way in the months to come.
==Where To Buy==
As stated, you're able to pick this t-shirt up from the New Era store, but if you wouldn't be able to get over to either London or Birmingham then you should look to their online store. There you'll have a better choice and a price with only a penny difference and so its best that you look there for it as you'll be able to get it for the very reasonable sum of £20. I thought that this was a well worth the money
