Ebbets Field Flannel Hat Collection-latest addition-Northwestern University

Since this was probably my 30th EFF hat.....I guess you could say that I love them. I love the vintage sewn on felt letters and the fit is always great. But this hat is special as it was purchased to celebrate my Dad's ( Henry Clason) years at Northwestern from 1938-1942 where he captained the basketball team while playing with Otto Graham, and he also pitched for the 1940 Wildcat Big Ten champion baseball team. I purchased three of for my brother, one for my nephew, and one for me. It will go into the rotation.....but this one is my favorite l!!

A Vintage Perspective on Style

I am in love with vintage college ball caps and this was my first purchase from Ebbets Fields... These caps are marvelous, and they capture the perfect balance between the retro feel of the 1960's, and the comfort of modern day caps. The only con I have about the cap is that the underbill satin gets wrinkled extremely easy when you bend the brim. Not a huge deal at all though! I have bought several more caps after this one and they all have been worth my money

Love the hat. Looks great. Fits great. I play ball everyday, and I wear one of my Ebbets Field hats. I have purchased about 15 hats over the years, and I have always been extremely pleased with my purchases.
