The days are getting longer and this also means we are getting more sun exposure. I won’t tell you how you should be using your sunscreen daily, but this blogpost will be about best quality made caps. To get some sun protection and to look or at least feel cool.

Ebbets Fields Flannels
Quality vintage looking baseball cap made in USA. You can choose mostly between emblems and crests from non-major league history such as the Negro leagues and the pre-1958 Pacific Coast League. A nice opportunity to wear something different than the standard MLS team crests.

Ebbets Fields Flannels is American brand established in 1988. They are making vintage jerseys, jackets and caps in America the old fashioned way, using original materials and manufacturing techniques. They remain committed to bringing the quality, beauty and craftsmanship of mid-century American athletic garments to the 21st century public. 

If you are in EU, you can find them at your favourite retailers or if you are in the USA you ca buy them directly from their website.

The Ampal Creative
Another quality version of a baseball cap made in USA. They offer a variety of different graphics on their hats if you don’t want to wear a crest of a sports team.

The Ampal Creative is American brand established in 2007. Their products are known for quality and attention to detail – exclusively Made in USA. They search for local manufactures to find premium textiles and unique prints. Often, they find a single roll of deadstock material and make as many hats as they can from it. Being 100% hands on in all stages of development, for each hat, allows them to ensure the highest level of quality.

The Real McCoy’s
We are already familiar with this Japanese brand that is recreating military pieces. But I haven’t talked about their wide selection of headwear. From military style to biker/trucker and classic baseball caps all made in Japan with great attention to detail, as we expect from the brand.

Poten
Poten is a relatively new headwear brand from Japan. Each Baseball Cap is made in the same factory that produces for the Major League Japanese baseball teams in Japan. The caps have no logos or branding on them, keeping their design simple and pure. Because of the materials they’re made from, every cap will naturally age and develop a unique look, becoming distinctly yours. Like your favourite pair of jeans, they carry your experiences in each and every crease, bend and mark that develops.

How you wear a cap is a very personal choice. Some guys only wear it when in swim shorts and on the beach, other wear it with a suit. I think there is no wrong or right way here as long as it feels like a part of the outfit and not just a piece you threw on, because you didn’t have time to make your hair.
