Ebbets Field Flannels custom models
Fortunately for those of us who like to wear ballcaps but don’t care for the synthetic fabrics and full crowns of the imported pro model caps, makers like Ebbets Field Flannels and Ideal Cap Co offer lots of well-built and handsome options. Assuming you missed out on the Put This On Cooperstown Ballcap (and even if you have one of those, who can’t use another cap?), Ebbets is a great option—whether you want a plain cap, a custom cap, or a choice from dozens of college, independent league, Negro League, or other organizational design. I’ve compiled a (not exhaustive) list of the custom Ebbets-made caps I’ve seen for sale this season.

The Put This On Ballcap: Buy Yours Now
I’ve always been jealous of Yankees fans. Not only do they seem to buy their way into the World Series every year, but their hat goes with almost anything. Us Giants fans get a raw deal - orange and black goes with almost nothing, unless you happen to be a witch. Quite the quandary.
I created the Put This On ballcap to solve that problem. A simple icon and a classic color scheme; easy to wear every weekend. And it’s a collaboration with Cooperstown Ballcap, who make the finest caps in the world. That means gorgeous wool flannel and a durable, fitted leather sweatband. No plastic snapbacks or nylon mesh in our caps. And they’re made right here in the USA.
Quantities are very limited on this one, so if you want it, order now. Mine’s already seen some slow-pitch action, as you can see above.

Regular Put This On readers know that I have a special place in my heart for the baseball cap. It’s rare that you’ll find me outdoors on weekends without one, and my favorite manufacturer, by far, is Cooperstown Ballcap Co.
Sadly, Cooperstown Ballcap lost its license to produce replica MLB caps, which was the core of their business. These days, they make 19th-century and international baseball hats, among other products, as Ideal Cap Co.
I’ve been corresponding with Cooperstown Ballcap’s owner, and we’re going to be making a very special product this spring: the PTO cap. My favorite ballclub is the San Francisco Giants, and their orange-and-black cap goes with almost nothing, so I’ve been looking for a high-quality, simple cap to wear for a decade or so. I finally decided to design one myself.
Our hats, which we’ll be offering in a very limited quantity this spring, feature a very simple design in a very wearable colorway. They have soft crowns, like the hats of the 1930s, 40s and 50s, and their made of premium wool flannel with a leather sweatband. No snapback here. They’re the absolute best ballcap you can buy.
Look for our collaboration with Cooperstown Ballcap early in the baseball season… then wear it all summer.
