History: In 2020 the NFL will be celebrating it’s 100th Anniversary. As part of that celebration, Ebbets Field Flannels is releasing a special Historic Collection of jerseys, jackets, and sweatshirts from the 1920-1960 era. The first release is a collection of authentic cotton practice (or “utility”) jerseys from many NFL and AFL teams. These great shirts were made of ribbed cotton fabric with doubled elbows and shoulder yokes. Often the decoration was quite plain – just the team name stenciled on the jersey. In other cases slightly more elaborate graphics were used. We reproduce them here exactly as they were where the research shows the original, and we use other historic graphic elements for teams where an original design couldn’t be located (some teams just wore a generic practice jersey with no lettering). The garment is the same professional vintage utility jersey we have been making for years, with all the quality and authenticity you have come to expect from EFF. Keep in mind this is only the first release, and is a limited production run, so get yours now. More teams to come!

FOOTBALL UTILITY SHIRT

I can’t be sure about this but when I wear this shirt, it makes me feel like I’m a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers from the 1930s. The look of it is exactly what I picture when I think about a football player pre WWII. It’s the perfect blend of being snug but not too tight and it’s extra warm. I love the doubled elbows and the yoke on the shoulders. The shipping was quick and came sooner than estimated. I cannot recommend this product enough, I bought two more before they were sold out.
Great item, looks great, nice quality, take note when they say size DOWN they do come up large.
I love the cut and retro style of this shirt! I wear it as casual wear and a substitute for your basic crew neck sweatshirt, even to work with chinos and an oxford shirt. I'm 6'0 and 180 lbs and like my clothes fitted and I got the small size, yet it loosens as I wear it. I can afford to put it in the dryer. I love the cut, the shape around the shoulders, and the elbow pads. My only problem, as a Canadian resident, is paying shipping, duties, and handling the US conversion. I wish I could afford the retro flannel football jerseys.
