Ebbets Field Flannels' New Pioneer Square Store
Ebbets Field Flannels, which recently moved around the corner to more spacious digs in Pioneer Square (119 S Jackson St.; ebbets.com), has always seemed misnamed for a Seattle-based company. But the 26-year-old retailer honoring the ballpark where the old Brooklyn Dodgers used to play makes up for it with plenty of Seattle-centric options. Consider the faithful replica jacket of the 1941 Seattle Rainiers, who won the Pacific Coast League baseball championship that season for the third year in a row.
