Great hat

I ordered the same size as I do in New Era hats and it fit perfectly. It’s a good looking really comfortable hat.

Another great hat.

This is my fourth hat and as always they fit well, are made to last and look great. I especially like the soft visor. Makes for a perfect curve and great fit.

Beautiful hat, finely tailored

I was pleasantly surprised with how high-quality Ebbets products are. The hat is finely tailored and the cloth differentiates this product from the mass market hats.
