The Los Angeles Dodgers have had a banner season this year. This season they destroyed the NL West Division, then moved on to the post season where they just eliminated the Atlanta Braves. Now, they wait to see if they play Pittsburgh or St. Louis in the next round, hopefully on their way to the World Series. If you’re a die hard Dodgers fan then no doubt you’re already fully stocked with jerseys, tees, and hats. But, if you’re like the thousands of ‘fans’ that just tuned in once they started winning, and became a sure thing for the post-season, then you want to show up to the big game dressed correctly without looking like every other bandwagon fan that drunkenly raided the gift shop before they took their seat. Fear not fair-weather fan, we’ve sourced some dope gear from around the internets to make sure you support the Dodgers looking like you’ve always supported the Dodgers.
Anyone can go out and get a standard issue Dodgers jersey or a t-shirt that looks like it came in a case of beer, but you want to look a cut above. The only solution of course, is with gear from Ebbets Field. These guys are making proper vintage sportswear with classic materials and the highest level of fit-and-finish. The streetwear industry has taken note and now everyone and their sister wants some Ebbets Field Flannel for their gear. Their classic LA Flannel looks incredibly dope, super clean, and it’ll last you forever. Plus it’s made from real flannel so it’ll give you a little extra warmth during those Fall post-season nights.
If you think a jersey is too beginner for you then maybe you need to upgrade your look with a satin windbreaker that’s sure to have the third base coach squinting up at you in the stands, wondering why his isn’t that nice. Again, Ebbets goes off the charts with their classic satin windbreaker in Dodger blue with legit sewn felt cresting.
Now, once you’ve got your main piece, you can focus on the accessories. Your hat choice says a lot about you here so proceed with care. Thankfully, the Dodgers logo and iconography is super classic and clean so anything will work. However, since your jersey is going to be timeless, why not go a little modern with your headwear. As we saw yesterday, New Era is doing things correctly, right here in the USA so support your local economy and get a joint from them. They just released a 2013 post-season collection so grab either of these classic pieces for your collection.
This “Diamond Era” Post-season fitted is pretty trick with it’s grey upper and contrasting logo patch. Grab it from New Era for $38.99
If you want something more traditional, grab the 2013 Post-season Dodger blue version from New Era for $38.99.
If you’re a streetwear junkie then you definitely make sure your kicks match your outfit, and that includes sportswear. You want some sneakers that set it all off without making it look like you just stepped off the field. Check out these three offerings to bring it all home.
Anyone who lives in California can tell you that Vans are the shit and should be your go-to for anything. Rather than opt for some basic classics, cop these Desert Suede SK8-HI CA reissues that are trick as fuck and yet still have that Vans vibe. Get ’em from Need Supply Co. for $75.
Want something bolder and brighter? Then fuck with these smooth New Balance Monochrome 501s in royal blue suede. You’ll definitely get noticed, but these are still clean enough to wear year-round. Pick up a pair from Karmaloop for $65.
Don’t want to wear ‘skate shoes’, and not bold enough to wear royal blue suede? Keep it super classic with these hi tops from PF Flyers. Sure, you could rock Chuck Taylors, but everyone rocks Chucks so rep your inner Sandlot Gang and grab a pair of these for $54.99.
Whatever you decide to wear, support the Dodgers this post-season!
