By New York Times Store
For more than 165 years, The Times has been reporting the truth from all five boroughs, bringing readers the stories that have shaped and defined the city. The Times Store is celebrating our renowned journalism as well as the city itself with the Local Edition, a collection of products made in collaboration with New York suppliers who strive for excellence and focus on details, just as we do. The collection includes our 100% cotton baseball caps, handmade and stitched in Ridgewood, Queens.
Local journalism is growing increasingly rare, but The Times remains committed to providing fact-based city reporting, which it has done since September 1851 — nearly 10 years before the Civil War.
High quality and exacting detail, hallmarks of our journalism, also went into our Local Edition hats. Each was produced by Winner Caps, a family owned manufacturer specializing in American-made headwear for 20 years. Located in an old factory building in Ridgewood, Queens, Winner Caps prides itself in using the finest materials to produce hats by hand in New York.
Each black cap is sanded and brushed after the dyeing process to give it an authentic worn look. Embroidered with white lettering, it has a medium profile, curved visor and threaded eyelets. The headband contains a solid brass clasp for adjusting. Each hat pays tribute to a borough and displays a small “T” logo on the back, showing it’s from The Times.
