I’ve called New Era up at their US office in and in their Canadian office. I’ve been trying to get my hands on a Montreal Canadiens 59Fifty fitted hat. The picture is below. I have also asked shops who stock New Era branded hats if they can order it for me. It ha a listed price of $35 on the website but I would easily pay $50 for it.
The best line from the rep in Canada was “Actually we don’t sell that hat to Canada because there isn’t a market for it” to which I replied, “What? There isn’t a market for the Montreal Canadiens hat IN CANADA?!” Obviously someone was smokin’ crack that day.
If anyone knows where I can get my grubby mitts on this hat I would be stoked. More Montreal Canadiens must haves are the Canadiens Legends: Montreal’s Hockey Heroes and The Montreal Canadiens Hockey Team.
