TSPTR x EBBETS FIELD FLANNELS CHARLIE CAP

As a constant reader of LIFE TIME GEAR blog you must know that I am a great fan of EBBETS FIELD FLANNELS caps. I own a lot of because I love this heritage, classic and authentic look. Beside, the fit is perfect. When I order a 7 1/4 it is a 7 1/4 – every cap has the same fit and believe me this isn’t the norm i f you compare to other labels. Some days ago I discovered the woolen CHARLIE BROWN baseball cap which is the result of a collaboration between 60s counterculture-inspired brand TSPTR – which stand for Truth, Symmetry, Pleasure, Taste, Recognition – and EBBETS FIELD FLANNELS. Certainly made in the USA of a grey melange wool with an adjustable leather tab and calf leather trim. “CHARLIE BROWN” is constructed with the same soft wool which is used for EBBETS’ vintage baseball uniforms – great, isn’t it? This is my first EBBETS which is not made to size and the fit is perfect too. I know it from the moment on I took it out of the parcel which came from CALIROOTS: this is a new Life Time Gear piece. pics | LTG

LTG CAP & HAT COLLECTION | 06 | THE MARK McNARY HARRIS TWEED BASEBALL CAP

saw this cap and i knew i must have it, because i like HARRIS TWEED stuff so much. this began with my first NIGEL CABOURN TENZING JACKET in 2008. i like the grip and the function of this great fabric from scotland. damn, this cap was online @ CALIROOTS on monday. on tuesday all items were sold. no wonder … the cap is MADE IN USA, has an absolute classic look, you can wear it with a rounded visor (as i do) or contemporary flat, inside there is a leather stripe, so the fit is perfect even if you sweat. the color is a dark woolen blue – perfect. and the best, no McNARY logo outside – just the nice usual HARRIS TWEED label in fornt of the cap. one of my absolute favorites and sorry, couldn’t find it anymore, anywhere in the www. pics | LTG
