Treating yourself and donating money to charity may initially sound like polar opposites. But what if we told you that there is a way to splash out for summer whilst also helping teenage cancer sufferers?
Seattle-based Ebbets Field Flannels, renowned for their authentic baseball jerseys and caps, have united with contemporary style brand Whistles to create a range of stylish, limited edition caps. To top it off, 100% of all profits being donated to Trekstock, a charity dedicated to post cancer support for young adults.
Every year, 11,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. Amongst many things, these teens are burdened with concerns and uncertainty regarding their futures. Trekstock works to support these young people, giving them an authentic voice.
The distinct caps are a product of two very different approaches to clothing. The unique collaboration combines the craftsmanship of Ebbets Field Flannels, hailed by many as the American athletic garment specialists, with the contemporary British design of Whistles.
Hand crafted in the USA, using authentic manufacturing techniques, the collection comprises of two limited edition bespoke flannel caps. Both caps come with a pewter metal finish buckle, 100% leather tan adjustable backstrap and satin peak taping.
The first cap in the range harks back to the designs worn by old-school baseball players in the 1960s. Available in classic navy, the reverse of the hat features the embroidered letters ‘WXTS’, to mark the Whistles x Trekstock partnership.
The second cap uses a classic six panel style to continue the vintage theme. Contrasting colours owe to a bold and vibrant cap that combines classic tones with a modern design. Finally, the Whistles brand logo stands out as a mark of style and quality.
The limited edition caps, priced at a reasonable £55, are available online at www.whistles.com and in selected Whistles Stores. Get your hands on one to add that sporty edge to your summer wardrobe, whilst also doing your bit for those in need.
