Akomplice x Ebbets Field Flannels “Behind The Needle” Lookbook
Ebbets Field Flannels is a Seattle-based athletic apparel company that takes its name from the original ballpark that the Dodgers played in before moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles.
The brand came about when co-founder Jerry Cohen, a native of Brooklyn, discovered a factory containing old school baseball uniforms made of flannel, something that was customary in the early days of the sport. Being a fan of the quality of handcrafted uniforms from the early days of baseball, he started out by making himself a few custom pieces. Cohen soon found out that he wasn't the only one, with folks eventually wanting to buy the shirts off his back. Shortly after, the company now known as Ebbets Field Flannels was born.
Cohen wanted to bring back quality handmade goods because it was something he felt was missing in modern uniform production. For him, the design of modern-day uniforms was a bit on the tacky side.
In their new “Behind The Needle” lookbook, Akomplice takes you to the Ebbets Field Flannels facility, in Seattle, with photographer Jason Siegel.
The quality of the collection, which is 100% handcrafted, is unrivaled and gives life to Akomplice and its history.
The Akomplice x Ebbets Field Flannels collection consists of two jerseys, three hats, a jacket that are now available via the Akomplice web shop.
