Nearly 100 years after being founded in 1918 as an importer of sewing needles, American Needle has grown into a world leader in stylish snapback hats. When the company contacted the Chicago Cubs in 1946 with the proposal of selling fans baseball caps like the ones players wore, the ownership for the Cubs wondered who would buy them. When they sold out in one day, and faster the next, it was clear American Needle made quality caps. With such a storied history, it would be easy to lose touch with today's trends. Never losing a step, American Needle snapbacks bring the swagger to your favorite teams in today's looks.
The uniforms for teams like the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox may never change, but that doesn't mean you can't display your team pride differently. American Needle hit all the right bases by blending traditional team colors with vibrant prints like floral and tribal spices. Want to keep it classic? No problem! American Needle still uses the best embroidery, sublimation techniques, and authentic woven labels to make it official. When you snap in the adjustable back for that perfect fit, just know you're wearing a dynamic part of a strong American heritage.
