These were my favorite single item on the floor at the StyleForum 10 vendor showcase. If they’d been fitted rather than adjustable (albeit with a nice leather strap), I’d have bought one on the spot.
Apparently the Miami Marlins are now a rec-league softball team sponsored by a Caribbean-themed chain restaurant.
On the plus side, they’re celebrating Mojito Tuesdaze with 2-for-1 drink specials all month long!
I think the only way to perfectly describe the way Pete Rose’s outfit above combines the spirit of the late 1980s with creepiness, loudness and general unsavoryness would be to call it “Pete Rose-y.”
Say hey! Willie Mays and Al Dark at Spring training, 1961, via SI.
The only MLB team to still wear a chain stitched jersey.
Easily my favorite MLB logo. I have a 40s-style Cards hat with the birds and the bat from the late, lamented Cooperstown Ballcap Co. and it’s one of my favorite garments. The chain stitching here is absolutely lovely.
Here’s a classic baseball cap I’d like to wear. Fidel Castro pitches an exhibition game for “Los Barbudos,” in 1959, shortly after he came to power. The team was named after the nickname of his Cuban revolutionary group, meaning “the bearded ones.” Fidel was never much of a ballplayer, but he’s always been a lover of baseball.
