Myeongdong New Era | Reviews
We arrived at the New Era store. The New Era Myeongdong branch is the flagship store of Korea and has limited edition products that can only be bought in Korea and the MADE IN KOREA line as well as many other items.
This is the cube sign and structure in Korean that is iconic to the Myeongdong New Era branch. You can only see this at the Myeongdong Flagship Store.
You can see various items with major league logos ranging from hats all the way to clothes and shoes.
First up is the official major league players hat. The most popular brands start from the left to right : New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox.
New York Yankees is the most popular MLB team and is the most familiar logo to the people that don't know baseball.
THhis is why there are a lot of products at the New Era Myeongdong Store with the New York Yankees logo.
Out of the many items at New Era, I found the MLB mini logo hats to be the best looking.
The logo is placed in a cute style making it popular among females!
Besides MLB products, the New Era Myeongdong Store also has hats that have been created with collaborations with Pokemon and hats that can only be bought in Korea.
This is a hat that has Dongdaemun as its logo.
This is a hat that has New Era written in Korean. These are all offical New Era hats that can only be bought in Korea and would be great as a souvenir when visiting Korea.
New Era Myeongdong Branches other biggest pro is that they have a patch service where they put a patch and letter of your choice on the hat for you.
You can put a flag or Korean city patch. Personally, it is a perfect service to remember which countries you have travelled to and things you want to remember from Korea.
If patches are too much for you, you can also enjoy the embroidery service where you put letters that you want. There are 6 types of fonts and colors each and 2 letter shapes to help you create your style. Initials of yourself, friends, and loved ones are good as well as the date you visited Korea! Make one as a souvenir!
If you buy a hat and tell the New Era employee the service you want they do it immediately for you on the spot.
Shall we take a look at the clothes on the first floor?
This is the MADE IN KOREA product line that can only be bought at the Myeongdong Flagship Store.
There is a lot of t-shirts which can be worn on a daily basis. They are products that are produced in Korea making it to be clothing of great quality.
This is the most popular New Era long sleeve. It has a really simple design where anyone can enjoy wearing. The price of New Era may be slightly expensive but it is worth it as it is a famous brand with good quality.
This is the next best product which is the New Era Hoodie. It has the New York Yankees logo in the middle making it simple and clean. It also is of very good quality making it very enjoyable to wear.
There are trainers that you can wear while exercising besides the basic items of long sleeves and hoodies (2019 F/W New Item!)
The Trainer I liked the most was the Velour Training Set. It is made from luxury materials with a retro design from the 1970s.
It is a luxury color available in gold/blue. It was the best looking trainer out of the trainers I looked at here.
The next product I will introduce is the leather jacket that was created in collaboration with worldwide jewelry brand Swarovski that can only be found at the Myeongdong Flagship Store.
High quality natural leather and Swarovski crystal cubics are placed on the jacket. The price is 1,000,000KRW.
The next product I will introduce is New Era's padded jackets. They used nature friendly materials instead of animal fur. It has a comfortable fit as well as good insulation.
It is available in 5 colors of Orange, Woodland Camo, Dessert Camo, Black, and Zebra.
Out of the many colors, the zebra has the most unique and luxury feeling to it. It is a very cost-efficient padded jacket you can wear in the spring as it gets colder.
The next product line I will introduce is from a collaboration with worldwide skating brand Santa Cruz.
From hats to clothing, if you are a person that like Santa Cruz you will love these products. New Era does a range of collaborations with a variety of brands. They always make you wonder 'What brand will they do a collaboration with?'
Shall we go up to the 2nd floor now?
The 2nd floor is composed of mostly products for kids. The best products on the first floor can also be found on the 2nd floor in sizes for kids.
You can find the Velour Trainers that I introduced available at a kids size here.
Besides adult products, there are a lot of products created just for kids. It will be good to understand the store layout as 1st floor Adults / 2nd floor Kids. It is a convenient layout to come check out the products at the store.
There are also a variety of bags on the 2nd floor.
This is the New Era Black Waist Bag that is the best selling product at the New Era Myeongdong Branch. It doesn't cover a lot of space making it perfect to put on in the streets making it very efficient and popular to people!
The next product is the New Era carrier bag. It is a large bag that can fit up to 41L making it perfect for Creatrip Members that need a strong bag to use during their trip.
*It is a really popular product that the two types of this bag may not be available during your visit.
There is a TAX REFUND machine on the 2nd floor which you can use right after you make your purchase. You can receive a tax refund right after you finish shopping making it very convenient.
New Era Myeongdong Flagship Store! If you haven't been, make sure you do. You will be able to feel the charm of New Era Brand's premium feeling. All Creatrip members can receive a 10% discount no matter how much they buy.
