We’re delight to announce that we have teamed up with Birmingham based brand Provide to produce a new 3 piece headwear collaboration for this season’s T20 Blast campaign. Manufactured by New Era in very limited quantities, the fitted 59FIFTY cap, 5-panel camper and waffle knit beanie are now available on our online store and in the Edgbaston shop.
We are pleased to announce a new 3 piece headwear collaboration with our friends and neighbours, Birmingham Bears. Our relationship with the city’s T20 cricket team began this time last year, growing out of mutual appreciation for local brands that hold a strong sense of identity.
Provide are a Birmingham based brand that create and promote good design and independent culture. Provide often collaborate with Birmingham based brands and other artists to produce interesting products in small editions, as they believe in giving independent creativity space to experiment. Provide take pride in unearthing talent and sharing it with new audiences.
Matt Nation from Provide said; “The Bears are known as pioneers within the sport for being the first team in the league to create a new, designated T20 brand with a city name. For a sport with such deep historical roots, we loved this forward thinking decision and the consequent push the Bears have made to get stuck in with the community here in Birmingham. This shared love of the city led us to suggest working on some collaborative ideas, and inspired by the floodlit, night time atmosphere of many T20 matches, we decided to design a totally blacked out version of the Bears insignia on 3 classic hat styles. Each hat also features a subtle Provide logo embroidery on the side.”
