My love for my hometown Kansas City Royals was already in place long before my Baldwin KC hat arrived as a gift during last year's magical playoff run. Jason Sudeikis and a few other celebs sported these wool hats throughout the post season and now I'm happy to wear it down here in Texas.
But I'm picky about hats. They have to fit just right. And I much prefer a fitted cap and with this one, I was in luck: it's sized. Baldwin Denim and Collection prides itself in being a clothing and lifestyle brand, founded on modern design, quality textiles and American manufacturing. And the hat itself is even a bit of a throwback cut to the patterns of a traditional 1950s baseball bat. Constructed of 100% wool with chambray beneath the bill. The details seen in every stitch that adorns the "K" and the "C" on the front of the hat as well as the white stitched vents on the top of the ball cap show painstaking attention to detail. The store is modern, simple and very cool and the clothes for both men and women are a nice slim fit.
I headed home earlier this season to catch the Yankees-Royals series so I swung by the BALDWIN KC location on the Country Club Plaza. Had the not been a rush to get to "The K" a few hours could have easily been spent there.
