Style Guide: First Pitch

May 18, 2017

Category: Style

Whether you’re the kind of fan who can recite every player’s stats from memory, or you just think a beer tastes best when it’s enjoyed on the bleachers with a few friends, this is the best time of year. At no other point in time will the balmy weather of spring contrast so sharply with cold and rainy winter, and, to top it off, your home team has yet to completely disappoint you.

Those bums will let you down. If not this season, then almost certainly next. They always do. But you can at least enjoy your time out watching the games this time of year while looking sharp and staying cool. To celebrate the new season and the upcoming roller coaster of emotions all of our home teams will take us through, we’ve put together a list of what to wear to a baseball game ranging from raglan tees to a pair of classic canvas sneakers. Play ball!

1989 Unopened Topps Baseball Cards

First thing’s first. There are only a few things more American than a pack of baseball cards, and any kid who grew up collecting can vividly remember the excitement of opening up a new pack and the hours spent pouring over the stats of each player. Now, you can relive that fun by picking up these old school unopened baseball cards.

Purchase: $3.50

Maxx & Unicorn Money Clip

You need to pay for all of those overpriced craft beers at the ballpark somehow. This money clip from Brooklyn-based Maxx and Unicorn is built to easily keep your cash and cards organized and at the ready. Ideal for a more minimalist carry.

Purchase: $38

Timex Archive Camper Resin Watch

Not every timepiece you strap on your wrist has to break your budget. This simple watch – based on an old military design from the 1980s – features a date window, easy to read Arabic numerals, and the classic INDIGLO backlight for when the game goes into extra innings.

Purchase: $55

Ebbets Field Flannels Twill Baseball Cap

Named after the bygone Brooklyn ballpark, Ebbets Field Flannels specialize in making quality classic athletic gear. This cotton twill hat with adjustable leather strap is a sharp and simple way to stay in the shade on or off the diamond.

Purchase: $55

Todd Snyder + Champion Slub Cotton Jersey

Not only are slub cotton raglan tees incredibly comfortable, they are just about the most classic piece of athletic gear out there. This one from Todd Snyder and Champion is built to keep you cool both up to and past the 7th inning stretch.

Purchase: $65

P.F. Flyers All American Hi

The old school All American Hi from P.F. Flyers with added Fresh Foam technology from New Balance. Classic looks, contemporary fit.

Pillbox General Bot

Modeled after the Civil War insignia that baseball’s inventor, Abner Doubleday, wore on his uniform, this solid handmade ash bat serves as a nod to the origins of the sport. A great piece to put in the office or hang in the house.
