    Looks like 11 are in for a ball cap, and they're asking for 24 to get the group rate. Barring a sudden flood of support, I don't think it's gonna happen. :/

    Have you looked at Ideal Cap Co.? They took over cooperstown caps. They have a ton of blank flannels and repros but are about $50 each. I guess it's OK as a back up, though they might also offer group buys.

    you can search by fabric on the left

    Cool, never saw that website. Doesn't seem like they do an adjustable with a leather strap though?

    You're right. Inventory usually does a run of plain Ebbets field flannels for the winter, which have adjustable straps (seems they might only have twills now, though). I've seen other companies that run plain ebbets as well but can't remember off the top of my head.

    Fair ends has some flannel baseball and camp hats, which are adjustable (but not leather). I'd be wary of them though; I just received their waxed olive baseball hat and the strap became detached immediately. Waiting to hear back about a potential exchange, but wondering if this run could have been bad.

    I saw the Fair Ends hats, and I thought they looked ok except for the strap, which was nylon webbing. Kind of ruined it for me.

    Their twill caps are really mediocre.

    I'm happy to take the reins on this. Seems like we have 17-20 people who are interested, hopefully we can get a few more and make this happen. I will reach out to EFF to see about pricing and logistics.
