Some of you on here have seen this but for those that haven't here's how 5950's are born.

I would like to see the corresponding breakdown for the Chinese factories....

I bet the Chinese factory has more chlorine gas, sweat, tears, and 4 year old laborers.

Interesting article, I find it funny when they say improving each year. More like outsourcing.

Improving by having more misfits, more crooked logos, less US jobs than ever before!!!!

I will give NE credit they always did find ways to improve on USA made 5950's. I can remember how much the crowns evolved from the 'three peaks' of the 80's up to 2006 and even the polys from 2007 to now have continually improved. Some of the 2012 polys I have picked up this year are the best fitting hats I own and I own a lot of these hats. (a disturbing amount)

This is part of my frustration with the Chinese hats, they still suck and I have yet to see even nominal improvements with them. At best I have found some that are less ass than the general lot of them and that's not saying much.

Not to forget the boss, who always puts pressure on the workers, because they woudn't be working without the boss yelling at them.

I really wish New Era would make the NFL caps here in the U.S.... I have noticed more and more differences between the two. The MLB hats are just a lot more comfortable, and the crown is perfect.
