World-famous Italian fashion house Gucci has joined forces with American sports’ winningest franchise, the New York Yankees.
The high-end retailer is selling items with the famous interlocking ‘NY’ logo as part of its line of baseball apparel.
Shoppers in the market for a houndstooth coat can buy one with the Yankee logo on the left breast, though it will set them back $5,500.
A wool jacket with the old-school Yankee trademarked logo is selling for $3,700.
For those a bit more thrifty, a blue Yankees long sleeve acetate bomber jacket would run you $2,450.
A pair of Gucci jeans with the interlocking NY placed on the left thigh costs $1,150.
Anyone who wants to walk around their house in style can purchase a pair of leather slippers with the Yankee logo.
The retail price for the slippers is $980.
Then there’s the Gucci designed baseball cap.
On the front of the cap above the bill is the Yankee logo. This hat, however, is customized.
Instead of the traditional navy blue, these hats are royal blue. They also sport an embroidered butterfly on the side with the word GUCCI sewn above it.
The Yankees aren’t the only baseball team whose logo is emblazoned on Gucci wear.
Two of baseball’s other historic franchises – the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants – have also collaborated with Gucci.
The Giants’ familiar interlocking ‘SF’ can be found on Gucci apparel, like a red cotton sweatshirt that costs $1,380.
But the Yankees are still the pre-eminent baseball brand name.
Last month, Ralph Lauren announced a special ‘Ralph Lauren x Yankees’ collection.

The fashion line’s founder, Lauren, is a lifelong fan of the Bronx Bombers.
As part of the company’s 50 anniversary celebration, it unveiled an exclusive app-only, limited edition line that includes a specially embroidered satin baseball jacket, a New Era ‘RL50’ baseball cap, a Wilson leather baseball glove emblazoned with a ‘Ralph 50th’ logo, and a Rawlings commemorative baseball.
Lauren was honored before a Yankees-Red Sox game at Yankee Stadium last month.

Since the team’s founding in 1903, the Yankees have won a total of 27 World Series championships.
That is the most championships won by any professional team in the four major North American sports leagues – Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Hockey League, and the National Basketball Association.
