Love it, but…
Along with the other cap I purchased this time, my Grambling cap represents my 9th or 10th EFF cap, so I I'm well-versed in the quality and craftsmanship that goes into an Ebbets Field Flannels cap. My only issue with these two is that they fit tighter than any other EFF cap I've purchased. I wear a 7 1/4 and both of the caps in this purchase fit quite snug. While some wear and bill-bending have stretched out the other EFF cap I bought, my Grambling cap is still fitting snug. I'm not too worried, as it's been my experience that EFF caps look and fit better with wear. Overall, the Grambling cap is great looking, the black wool broadcloth is nice and thick, that gold felt G jumps right out at you, and I'm looking forward to cooler weather and more opportunities to wear it. I just wish it wasn't so tight out of the box…
