Batter up. Big time ballers Ebbets recently produced this rather excellent Stadium Cap for British label Ardour Brand. Ebbets Field Flannels is the top dog in this market and their custom makes-ups have been on the rise over the last couple of years, Ardour's choice of colour and letter placement is as good as it gets. The cap itself uses the traditional a 6-panel design, is made from 100% wool, fitted with a adjustable leather strap and comes in Ardour's teams colours of aztec brown and cream. Sna*back fans need not apply.
My fascination with American sportwear started at an early age when my Grandad's sister, the wonderfully name Betty Lemon, would send us over Philadelphi Flyers hockey jerseys and all sorts of cool baseball caps every year. I must have had 10 different teams hanging on my bedroom wall but there wasn't any favouritism, I really just liked the designs. Over the past couple of years I've been getting into hats again (maybe it's down to loosing my hair but it has its advantages) and I've started a collection of repro designs. Along with caps I'm forever searching ebay for jerseys, jackets and other bits of memorabilia. Another advantage of the Ardour x Ebbets Stadium cap you don't have to profess be a play-by-play expert on the history of your team.
