New Era rewinds the clock with retro inspired collection looking back at basketball’s iconic fits

This summer, New Era looks at basketball’s long history of on and off court style. Mixing retro boxy fits with heritage stripes on a range of casual classic headwear and apparel, New Era brings the league into the 21st century. 

Covering the Chicago Bulls, the Brooklyn Nets, the Boston Celtics, and the Los Angeles Lakers, this drop includes a mix of headwear and apparel in the bold colourways synonymous with each team. 

Starting with the Chicago Bulls, the team lends its livery to a sleek curved 9TWENTY silhouette. The cap is all black and the team’s unmistakable logo can be seen in red and white front and centre with the New Era flag in contrasting red on the left side. The apparel follows suit, with a black, pinstripe jersey sporting the team logo on the left chest.

Keeping up the block colour theme, the Los Angeles Lakers offering is repped by the distinctive snapback 9FIFTY and oversized t-shirt combo. The 9FIFTY has a purple base with the team’s logo across the front and ‘Lakers’ wordmark stitched on the back. The corresponding tee positions the team’s logo at the centre of the chest, contrasting the enlarged arch wordmark graphic on the back body. The top is finished with team-coloured stripes looping around the sleeves that pop against its white base. 

Next up, the Boston Celtics give us a headwear and apparel combo that is sure to make a slam dunk. Starting strong, we have the flat visor 9FIFTY in an eye-catching green. The team’s logo appears on the front which is paired with the wordmark embroidered on the reverse. The accompanying oversized tee places the team’s distinctive leprechaun logo at the centre and includes NBA loop label to the right hem. Turning to the back, we find the team wordmark graphic enlarged across the body and sleeves featuring looping stripes of green and black. 

The Brooklyn Nets deliver an oversized tee featuring bold graphics over a neutral, black base. In the middle of the chest is a small version of the team’s logo paired with white and silver stripes across both shirt sleeves. The back body is dominated by an enlarged arch graphic of the team’s logo and wordmark. 

Completing the collection is an NBA league logo cap in New Era’s relaxed and wide-fit GOLFER silhouette. The white cap is contrasted with a blue visor which compliments the bold NBA logo and wordmark emblazoned across the front. The style is finished with a premium red rope detail over the visor and a matching New Era flag on the left side.
