Very nice! I've had my eye on the Polars for awhile. Do they fit the same as New Era caps? For example, if I wear a 7 5/8 in New Era should I order 7 5/8 from EFF?

I'm a 7 3/8 in New Era but the 7 3/8 felt super tight and shallow so I sized up to 7 1/2 and they fit perfect

I second the size up. I wear 7 5/8 New Era and 7 3/4 ebbets.

Thanks for the input. I am actually between a 7 1/2 and 7 5/8 with New Era. I buy a 7 5/8 and then shrink it down a bit. So maybe an EFF 7 5/8 would be perfect.

Can Ebbets Field hats be shrunk?

I'm thinking about investing in my first Ebbet Field cap, the the one on the right is sick.

I'm having a tough time keeping my brim curved. Any suggestions out there?

They are wool, so most likely.

I just keep bending it as I wear it. Have you tried the old rubber band trick?

I did the rubber band around an aerosol can, same thing. I may try the coffee mug and heating it up with a hair dryer. Hopefully, when it cools, it will hold its shape.

Scott sold me one of his old EFF's and he curved the hell out of that brim. Hopefully he's still lurking and able to give you fellas some pointers.

Put the hat on my car dashboard for almost 2 hours, then put it in a coffee mug for a day and a half. This is the curve I got. Good enough I suppose....For now.


Apparently I can't figure out this photo uploading thing...
