New Era Caps at Top Hats Shop

Ehrhardt Koch revolutionized the world of hats in 1920 with the founding of a family business called NewEra Cap Co.

In 1920 he founded the E. Koch Cap Company thanks to a loan of 1000 dollars. Later, with the new name of New Era Cap Co, his company began producing 60,000 Gatsby hats a year.

In 1932 his only son Harold joined the business and his economic vision of the company and the environment, he realized that a change was needed. The change was to produce fewer Gatsby hats (less and less demanded) and start making baseball caps taking advantage of their popularity growth.
In the 40s they made the adjustable caps with elastic reinforcement.

New Era Baseball Caps

In 1950 New Era was the only independent company that made the caps for the big baseball leagues. Koch died in 1953 but his ideals are still present today with the current NewEra models. Shortly after his death was born the model 59fifty that in the 60s began to be produced exclusively in a new factory in Derby, New York. In 1961 they were invited to the Winter Baseball Meetings where they could sell directly to the teams of the "Major League" and the Minor League.

In 1972 Harold was promoted to executive director and his son David Koch was appointed president after 14 years in the company. In 1974 almost all MLB teams already had a signed contract with NewEra.

The vision of David Koch allowed to grow constantly in the 80s. University sports caps, international baseball leagues, tennis and golf increased their demand, as well as military orders.

In 1993, NewEra became the exclusive supplier of Baseball Major League caps.

In the 20th century, they continued to globalize and opened offices in Europe, Japan and Australia.

Incorporation of New Era to the NFL

In recent years the NFL and NewEra have re-associated and have obtained the exclusive rights to make hats and field caps.
