I'm really liking the Brooklyn Bushwicks hat. I've always meant to get one. Since I live right by the old Dexter Stadium. Classic look too.

Very cool. The old Royals style with the huge M was weird.

What size is that Mets one? Feel like letting it go to a Mets fan? Smile


The Mets cap is a 7 1/2.

It is weird that the early EFF Montreal Royals caps had the larger M. I think it looks better, but from the photos I have seen it is not historical accurate. EFF has changed some of their styles over the years, in what I assume is an attempt to become more accurate over time. There are two versions of the New Orleans Pelicans hat. One version has the soutache striping coming under the logo through the front panels of the hat.

Anyone have any experience with the pillbox style? I'm looking to get the Brewers one they have but I don't have any EFF hats. In NE I'm usually between 7 1/8 and 1/4.

Go for the larger size. Their pillboxes tend to fit a bit more snug.

OK cool, thanks. One more question though, do they shrink easily when you wear/sweat in them since they have a cotton sweatband?

Not really, I haven't noticed a difference. Might want a second opinion though.

How long does EFF shipping usually take for one or two hats?

If they are in stock then only a few days. If not, you might have to wait a few weeks for production.

I guess I'll e-mail them and see if they have what I'm looking for in stock. I just may have to take them up on their 3 for $96 deal to jump start my EFF collection.

I know that a bunch of back-ordered hats just arrived, so most should be in stock. They are having a 20% off sale right now if you enter the code "Small13" when you check out. It's good through Monday.

OK great. Thanks for all the help Insomniac. Now I just have to decide whether I want the Los Barbudos or Atlanta Crackers hat.

Bummer. The good news is that the wait usually isn't as long as they say (if they gave you an estimate of when they would be in stock). I recently ordered a shirt that they said would take 3-4 weeks for production but it shipped after a week and a half.

I actually just got my Brooklyn Bushwicks hat yesterday after ordering it in late September.
