Richardson Fitted Base Umpire Cap
I wear 7 1/4 and this umpire cap fits me well. I ordered the six stitch and wear it for plate and bases. I am happy with this product. I will be buying a four stitch one size smaller as I need a tighter cap for the plate. The cap looks sharp and fits well.
The fitted umpire cap looks so classy, much better in my opinion than the adjustable one. The fit was true to size, maybe a tiny snug if anything. I actually meant to get the 8 stitch, this is the 6 stitch but it looks good either way.
The problem with Richardson umpire hats is the sizing. Others have said same thing. Purchased two hats at the same time and they don't fit the same. Only difference between hats was the rows of stitching. Six stitch is being returned due to size (too big) and keeping the 8 stitch. Frustrating, but this isn't the first time this has happened.
Love the Richardson hats. Big fan of the 6 stitch for when I'm on the bases as I have a full style mask so I don't need a hat on the plate. Overall great product and fits to my size, which is a 7 3/8. Will definitely stick to the Richardson 6 Stitch in the future.
Great hat, but watch out for the sizing. The sizes are unpredictable. I keep ordering 7 1/8 and some hats come too big, and others too small. I have ordered at least 12 hats, and am only able to wear 1 because that is the only one that fits.
