This is the first post of a new series that I’ll do, Fly Fitted. This will focus on sports fashion including jerseys, but mainly focusuing on hats. If you don’t know, I’m a huge hat person. I don’t really buy a ton of clothes, or get new shoes a lot. However, I’m always looking for new hats. So, I figured I might as well share some of my favorite finds on my blog.
The first entry is for the Las Vegas 51s, the AAA affiliate of the New York Mets. The 51s are doing a promotion focusing on their Spanish heritage. For those games, they have changed the team name and logo to the Reyes de Plata, or Silver Kings. It focuses on the silving mining history of Nevada.
I found this hat while messing around on Twitter. The second I saw it, I went to buy it. However, they were releasing it at the stadium first and then selling the rest at 3am eastern online. By the time I got online in the morning, they were out. They are currently doing a pre-sale for hats to be released in October, so I’ve got to wait a bit to get mine in the mail.
