Great Vintage Ballcap
This has become my default hat! The wool fabric is soft and comfortable, and I love the clean style of the dark blue fabric with the bright US logo. This was my first purchase from Ebbetts Field, and I couldn't be more impressed.
Remarkable Quality, Comfort, and Authenticity
The materials, construction, and historical accuracy of Ebbets Field Flannel caps are unparalleled in the sportswear industry. The second you remove the cap from the shipping box, you realize how superior it is to its mass-market counterparts. The authentic broadcloth wool feels far softer than the low quality (often viscose) wool and polyester (plastic) used by other companies. The satin underbrim and taping give the cap a classy, finished look. As far as comfort goes, no detail has been overlooked. Using a cotton sweatband eliminates the itchiness and irritation that is often caused by wearing a cap with the standard polyester sweatband for prolonged periods of time. The cap's crown is backed with haircloth, which gives it a natural look and fit straight out of the box. Mass-market cap crowns always strike me as far too stiff. All of this aside, the authenticity alone is reason enough to purchase from Ebbets Field Flannels. This cap, and all of the others that they sell, are a testament to the magnificent quality of American manufacturing and design.
Wanted this hat for a while and it’s exactly as I hoped! The workmanship and detail in it is second to none! Absolutely in love with it.
Wonderful hat and history preservation
Fit: I wear size 7 and hat was true to size. Quality: fantastic construction, wool is very comfortable right out the box. Slight blemish on satin underbill, everything else was impeccable. Design and Stitching: Again, fantastic. Straight lines and very clean embroidery. Top notch. I really love this hat. First, it’s got a great history behind it and I love getting to talk about when people ask. Because players like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig wore the hat, people seem fascinated by the hat. The hat fit was great - true to size and incredibly comfortable out of the box. The feel and quality of the wool is fantastic. I had a slight blemish on my underbill satin - it looks like something sharp may have scratched it. Over all, very pleased and can’t wait to build up my collection of EFFs
