Its like Pete & Re-Pete - Roy Hobbs, J.Crew & Ebbets Field Flannels






I've been thinking about The Natural a lot lately. With Redford, "wonderboy" and some epic one-liners, it may be the perfect baseball movie. My brother loved it so much that my mother actually hand-made him the Knights' jacket one Christmas.

When I saw this over at J.Crew I forwarded it to him immediately. I have to admit I was impressed. They've been doing a few decent collabs lately, but Hobbs' NY Knights? That is just too good. However, more research led to the fact that this isn't a collaboration at all. J. Crew is just buying hats from the Ebbets Field Flannels line and charging a premium for them. Buy it direct from EFF for $20 where the crew's one will run you $40. Heck, EFF can set you up with Roy's jersey and my brother's jacket too. I wonder what J. Crew's mark up would be for those...

Shame. Only just found this blog, and it's been gone over a year. Love The Natural too.
