MLB TEAMS CELEBRATE JULY 4 IN STYLE
In celebration of July 4th, Major League Baseball released a new crop of themed threads. For this year’s style set, Majestic, New Era and the league worked together to develop the Independence Day designs, again incorporating a stars and stripes motif.
Uniforms aside, there were several sartorial nods to the holiday, in the form of footwear, catcher’s gear and off-field suiting styles. Below is a recap of the July 4th MLB fashion statements:
