Tartan pattern is better known in North America as plaid pattern, and its roots date back thousands of years. It has been synonymous with Scottish kilts, yet this pattern did not originate in Scotland. One key attribute of this pattern is the horizontal and vertical colors that interconnect. This pattern creates a highly distinct aesthetic that is easily recognizable. New Era took this traditional pattern and applied it to a range of New York Yankees caps. The result is a cap with a classic look and a modern flavor. These caps are a limited edition by New Era and can be purchased from ONSPOTZ online shop in Japan.
