GROUNDS CREW JACKETS
If you're a baseball fan, do yourself a favor and get one of these jackets. Even if you don't love baseball, the quality of these jackets is par-none and they look cool as ****. I own two and wear them often. They're lightweight cotton, but really durable. I often wear one with a sweater/hoodie underneath. For context, I am 5'8 - 150 lbs and ordered a small.
Gave this as a gift for Christmas to my brother. In a world where everyone buys their gifts from the Big Box Club Stores, I enjoy putting a little thought and uniqueness into gifts. Ebbets never disappoints. The quality and care that goes into each piece is second to none!
The jacket is comfortable and it fits great. Definitely need a sweatshirt under it when it cools off, but it looks great.
Great to finally get my whales jacket. It’s been out of stock for some time. It’s definitely made with care and with the right materials. Feels like I’m wearing a piece of history.
You can wear this jacket all year, although I recommend layering an EFF hooded sweatshirt underneath in the winter. These jackets are roomy, comfortable, weatherproof (mostly), and extremely durable. I get great comments everywhere I go. It looks great, and there's a great story behind every team. Make sure you know that the Whales were not a previous name of the Cubs, but that Weeghman Park was the original name of Wrigley Field.
