Another masterpiece from EFF!
Like all EFF flannels, you can't help but be overwhelmed by the high quality of the piece once you open the box (love the stylized tissue paper wrapping the jersey). The 1937 Homestead Grays Road jersey is yet another home run for EFF. I bought an XL and it fits just right for what I like to wear - at 5'7" and 195 lbs, I have plenty of room with just enough length to give me the feel of an actual jersey that could have been worn by Josh Gibson. I can't say enough about how great this looks - the navy felt lettering and numbers contrasted against the gray flannel; the two color piping down the center and at the end of the sleeves. Yeah, I will wear it, but this is also a fine example of the kind of baseball treasure to be admired that EFF is producing. I am extremely pleased to have received it, and if you are fortunate enough to purchase for yourself you will be equally happy. Thank you EFF for your continued excellence.
