New Era Quality Control Issues at it’s worst

first_img 343 posts 79 Page 1 of 2   Sports Logos Share this post The hat is also made of polyester instead of wool, this might change some of the shaping/sizing issues that occur after hats are worn awhile. The mlb logo on the back is also much more raised than the older 5950.So this is the big change? The hats will still be the 5950 but they will no longer be wool?

That MLB logo is really crooked. Sad thing is this is the one they choose to use as the photo on their web site. Hate to see what the other ones look like.Also look at this Detroit Cap. Does it not look like they used a raised MLB logo. 53,285 posts Share on other sites 22,645 ColeJ The logo on my Angels hat is crooked, actually….I didn’t notice it when I first got it because I hardly ever wore it. Yes, it is.I think it’s also a silly way to look at it, but it’s certainly unique.One might make the same argument for the Pinto. “Sure, it might explode in a 5mph collision, but what other car can say as much?”Yeah, but I doubt if you put that hat on and someone bumps into you, your head won’t burst into flames.Slight difference.

I’m just saying that we shouldn’t celebrate production defects as something admirable.

Members Members 0 Posted October 24, 2006 Yes, it is.I think it’s also a silly way to look at it, but it’s certainly unique.One might make the same argument for the Pinto. “Sure, it might explode in a 5mph collision, but what other car can say as much?” Okay, I’m defending this cap, because you aren’t looking at the photo all that closely…Take a look at the top of the cap. The left gromet is higher than the right gromet. Next, look at the bottom af the cap. It appears to be sitting a bit askew, doesn’t it? Again, the left side is a bit higher than the right. How many times have folks here been berated for relying on photos for color matches? Same goes for photos and angles. There’s no way to know what angle the cap was at when it was photographed… While the MLB logo may be a bit off, there’s plenty of other evedence to me that the cap is askew as well, magnifing that problem that much more.Moose if you have a problem with their product, either A. dont buy it or B. complain to their customer service and see if you can get something free out of it.I don’t buy them, because the quality is so low.But that wasn’t his point. His point was that the poor quality was in itself something unique and therefore worth celebrating, which I still maintain is a silly philosophy.Not a fan of error baseball cards?Often times miscolored logos or misplaced insignias make the item more unique.Poor quality would be if the threads were loose and caused the hat to unravel, this is not the case in that picture.My comment was tongue in cheek anyway because as was pointed out earlier in the thread I am not convinced the MLB logo is crooked- I think the hat itself is tilted. 1,259 Sports Logos 10,716 New Era’s quality has been slipping for quire some time, especially on the throwback hats which I collect. Problems range from the button not in the center, to the logo being too high, to incorrect color scheme, etc. I have heard that some of their hats are no longer made in the US. It would be interesting to see the quality difference between the US factories and non-US factories.Almost all of New Era’s hats are made in China. The only American Made hats left are the Authentic Collection, which are the ones that seem to be the more inconsastant of the bunch, but theyve both got some serous issues. 10,716 0 0 Yes, it is.I think it’s also a silly way to look at it, but it’s certainly unique.One might make the same argument for the Pinto. “Sure, it might explode in a 5mph collision, but what other car can say as much?”yeah but its not even closely comparable though. its a 25 to 35 dollar hat and couple thousand dollar car(at the time).if you have a problem with their product, either A. dont buy it or B. complain to their customer service and see if you can get something free out of it. 0 Members Link to post It does look pretty funky. 2,209 Prev Next Yep. I was gonna post pics of this the other day. It is a raised logo. I got the Cards and Tigers WS hats the other day and both the Cards and the Tigers home hats are in the fashion style with the raised logo. Im thinking these may just be a first run of the hats they sell. In any case I hope so because they both look really :censored:ty and cheap. Odd enough though, the Cardinals road cap is like the normal style. Ill take pictures once I have all four hats in hand. Im really afraid this is the look of whats new next year for the 59Fiftys.

The hat has some new features from the old 5950. My assumption is that this is the new style of hats that New Era will be selling next year. The underbill is black instead of the old gray. The sweatband is also black instead of the old white. The hat is also made of polyester instead of wool, this might change some of the shaping/sizing issues that occur after hats are worn awhile. The mlb logo on the back is also much more raised than the older 5950. no97 Posted October 25, 2006 0 Share on other sites Cyclopsis Joe Location:Charleston, SC Share on other sites Members 27 posts 0 Share this post FiddySicks Location:Calgary Alberta Canada The artist formally known as Bucfan56 Location:Downingtown, PA Members Posted October 24, 2006 Members 5 Sign in to follow this   Share on other sites 528 posts 0 umbudds Share this post I’m back!
