EBBETS FIELD FLANNELS
Ebbets Field Flannels continues to be run by its original founders, and remains committed to bringing the quality, beauty and craftsmanship of mid-Century American athletic garments to a 21st Century public.
100% HAND CRAFTED
Co-founder Jerry Cohen grew up in Brooklyn, not far from where the fabled stadium once stood in Flatbush. Jerry listened to his father tell stories of the colorful players of another era. He was proud of the fiercely independent neighborhood. And the Brooklyn Dodgers' heritage as the first major league team to integrate professional baseball in 1947, with the addition of Hall-of-Famer Jackie Robinson.
FUELED BY A LIFE-LONG PASSION
Jerry was fascinated with sports emblems and uniforms. As a youngster, he would purchase baseball cards to see the uniform changes and colors rather than for the players. Fast-forward to 1987, when he was trying to find a vintage flannel baseball jersey to wear onstage with his rock & roll band. Which led to...
MOVING INTO THE BIG LEAGUES
Not satisfied with the "polyester era" look and designs, Jerry became a bit obsessed, and eventually tracked down some old wool baseball flannel and had a few shirts made for himself. When people literally wanted to buy the shirt off his back, Ebbets Field Flannels was born. Focusing on non-major league history such as the Negro leagues and the pre-1958 Pacific Coast League gave the Company a unique twist, and brought relatively unknown baseball history to the public at large.
A GENUINE TEAM EFFORT
By 1990, Lisa Cooper had joined Jerry to keep things organized and running. That's when Sports Illustrated magazine ran a full page article about Ebbets Field. Celebrities like Spike Lee and David Letterman were soon among the growing customer base. Over 25 years and thousands of flannels later, EFF is still making vintage jerseys, jackets and caps in America the old fashioned way, using original materials and manufacturing techniques.

You can see and feel the Pendleton passion for quality. See it in the intricate patterns of blankets inspired by Native American designs and legends. Feel it in the softness of the lightweight, luxurious 100% pure virgin wool clothing we produce. We've been a family-owned business for 150 years, and for 104 of those years we've been weaving world class woolens in our Northwest Mills.
Our expertise and technology have grown over the years, and we have translated that experience into a host of other luxury fabrics. But our legacy of quality will never change.
You can rely on a Pendleton for a lifetime of comfort and beauty.
WE ARE MAINE SHOEMAKERS
We work at wooden benches with leather, needle, thread, and a few basic tools. We stitch, coax, and charm these humble materials into beautiful footwear.
Our methods go back centuries, back to the native Passamaquoddy. Made to cradle your foot in comfort. Meant to last a lifetime because they can be renewed by the same hands that created them.
Here, these skills have been passed down through generations. Here, we stubbornly resist trading human touch for industrial efficiency. Here, output is measured in dozens, not thousands.
CUSTOM MADE & WORN AROUND THE WORLD
We create thoughtful products that are worth holding onto.
The products we use on a daily basis say something about the people we are. We believe many things in life get better with time; it is that spirit we try to infuse in everything we create. In a world where we are overwhelmed by products made to break down, wear out or go out style, we aim to go against that grain.
We focus on value, durability and a timeless aesthetic.
Our goods are based in value-driven design and quality manufacturing. All of us make a statement every time we buy something. We vote with our wallets. It’s our belief that value is more than just saving a few bucks - true value lies at the intersection of something made well for a fair price, created in way that supports those who made it.
The objects in our lives are part of who we are.
No two people are the same, just like no two wallets or bags look the same over time. Each carries a unique story that is a reflection of our individual lifestyle. When a product improves and patinas with use, it carries the history of it’s user, of places traveled and memories made.
Process is paramount, but execution is everything.
Good design lives in the details. From obsessing over everything from custom made clay for Mazama Wares, to making all our metal rivets in house for Tanner Goods, we are always searching for the finishing touches that make our goods the best they can be.
We Are All Products Of Our Environment. Let’s Cultivate The Best One We Can.
Our company, in many ways, is defined the community we belong to. We are Oregonians through and through. We believe in equality for all. We believe in putting others first. We are a progressive company that echos the values and ideals of our own community in Portland and the greater Northwest.
