Independence Day of the Philippines couldn't be more apt than ever. With the way things are going now, a sense of nationalism would be good to instill on any avenue. NEW ERA has been here for a few years now, and they have changed the fashion landscape for caps in the Philippines as they present high quality premium products right on their shelves.
To do the Philippines some good old history, they came out with this Pilipinas collection, signifying the Pilipinas insignia in 2 versions and one indicating the year of our independence with 1898.
They have this in snapback and plain sized versions. You simply have to drop by their stores and try it on so you could get your proper size. I don't usually wear caps unless I have to make a statement and this does even more than that. It instils pride I guess.
Then we have famous rapper GLOC 9 collaborating with NEW ERA Philippines to come out with 3 designs. One has a cartoon version of GLOC9, the other two has his songs titles on it. I personally like the one with the toon on it and the Simpleng Tao inscription, I dig it.
Daniel Broderick of NEW ERA says "Thanks for spending your holiday with us, spending 3 years with us and this collaboration with a local artist is just as timely. We did the warriors JayZ, J.Lo, and the reason we chose Gloc9 is because he's getting some play internationally, so please get one as I know they're going fast. Gloc9 will be our first, but we will have a lot more soon. Happy Independence day!"
GLOC 9 also performed in front of the stage and gave VIP shoppers a taste of freedom at Trinoma, admission was free and this guy didn't hold back. His mouth almost caught fire!
They have a lot of branches in major malls in the country, go grab them now before stocks run out! It's pretty good merch!
