  • Ebbets Field Fashions

    Many of the old photographs depict most of the men and women attending Brooklyn games in suits, ties, and hats for the men, and the ladies in dresses (also with hats). As a young boy (ages 7 through 11) I wore dungarees and a t-shirt. My dad wore a suit, tie and hat (mom a dress). What do you remember wearing?

    Oh man your parents were liberal. Any time we left the block, the dungarees came off and we had to wear dress clothes. I had to wear a button collar shirt and nice pants and shoes when I went to the game with my father.

      I've read that in those days, there was a strong smell of cigar smoke at the old ballparks. I was commenting to someone the other day that you hardly ever see a pipe-smoker anymore.

      How prevalent was either variety at Ebbets?

        My dad and all his brothers smoked cigars. Cigars were ubiquitous it seems in those days.

          Rory: You can see many pipe smokers at Grateful Dead Memories' shows.

            The old ballparks always had a haze, especially during day games with the sunlight highlighting the smoke from all the cigars, cigarettes and pipes. I still have an extensive pipe collection, although I haven't smoked in many years.

                  That's just the way it was. There was no air conditioning, people were used to the heat. The players wore those heavy flannel uniforms. The kids wore dungarees and a white T-Shirt. Times were differnt then.

                    I used to write "Dodgers" with a blue crayon on the front of my t shirt. It looked pretty good too until mom washed it!

                        I wonder how practical it would be to try to resurrect that "dressing up to go to the game" state of mind. Start a grassroots campaign, as it were.

                        Hmm.

                            Yeah. Quite a few. How sad it is!

                            Oh well, every great movement has to start from somewhere.
