Everyone's knocking the Officials Choice Shirts? I'll admit they're not the best but I believe that they are a good buy for a beginner umpire. I have several myself and on HOT days I love these shirts, very breathable, but they do look like a mesh basketball jersey. I started with Smitty shirts, they do "pill" on the collar and the sleeve, don't know why, and I have a Dalco shirt Pro Blue that I really like, I think they look sharp and breathe nicely. If you don't have the money to be spending on Majestic and Smitty stuff, the Officials Choice is a great option for starting out. You can get 4 or 5 shirts, a nice little selection for the same cost as 2 or 3 of the really great shirts. Because face it, it sucks when you're partners doing the plate, you give him the option of what he wants to wear and you don't have it.

Now it has been a while since I bought an officials choice so maybe they've improved their quality.
In initial quality the Officials choice is okay...

They are very breathable...


But as stated they pill, the buttons turn purple/pink -- I have personal experience with this. I have also heard that the seams come unraveled.

YMMV.

I don't care for the new MLB designed Majestics, so I've got none of them.

Navy: +POS NOS (new old stock)

Black: Majestic, no pocket for bases. Official's Choice MVP for cool plates, and OC regular for warmer evenings.

Black long sleeved: OC. Plus, the OC is making a lined one that's really nice, It might be out later in the year.

Polo: Majestic on the bases, and Honig's behind the plate.

Red: Dalco

Pink: Dalco

Silver: +POS NOS

Maroon: OC (it looks really snappy with the charcoal slacks)

White: +POS NOS

The confusion about TheOfficialsChoice shirts may stem from the fact that they have sold at least 3 different fabrics in the last 24 months.

I have one of the shirts that everyone seems to like. It is very light and stretchy and it is sized up for the plate. (no true to size). I agree with those folks who say this shirt is great. It hangs well and is extremely comfortable.

The second type of shirt was heavier, not stretchy at all and NOT sized up. Impossible to wear over a CP without ordering a larger size than the rest of my shirts.

The third type is the new "UmpDry" style. Not bad. Not great. Stupid wide stripes on the black shirt which are the same width as the Powder/navy and Navy/red. The width on my "UmpDry" shirt does not match the width on any of the other black shirts I own.

I would prefer the older, lighter, super stretchy material, but I wouldn't know how to order it from their website, if they even sell it anymore.

I use Majestic and Ultimate Umpire shirts for working the plate.. and honigs on the bases. I prefer the cotton collars of the majestic and the stretchy material of the Ultimate Umpire shirt (I only have the Ultimate shirt in Navy, the other colors are Majestic). As for the bases I like honigs because I'm a small guy and their medium shirts fit me perfectly.

For summer, Official's Choice.


Have you bought from them recently and if so any issues? I have some and need some more but I heard there were some problems so wanted to check it out before I buy


The best thing about them is after a few washings, you have a shirt with breast cancer awareness buttons.

I have ordered shirts from 5-6 smaller mfrs just to try them out, and they have all been terrible. . . until now.

I found this guy on ebay and ordered one of his prototype shirts he produced this year.

Long story short - it is a fantastic shirt @ $20 shipped. VERY comparable to Smitty in fit and stretchyness, yet still edges Smitty on Price and Material. He intends to produce more of the mainstream colors and styles next year. Sounds like he can produce a custom shirt as well for an association.

You may want to spend $20 (no tax, free shipping) and pick up one of his Navy shirts just to try it out, especially if you think you might be buying new shirts next year. If you do, be sure to send him feedback. Sounds like he is looking to make the next great value in umpire shirts.


Here is my email trail with him. Shirt pictures follow the email trail below.



Dear t-ringer,

What brand is this shirt? For $20 + free shipping I might be willing to try one.
Typically, unknown brands are a waste of money because they don't fit as expected.

Thanks for any info you can send.

Hello!

This shirt is manufactured for us to our specs by a factory we have used for other items for our business. Since we are a huge Smitty dealer, we had the shirts cut to similar specs but because of what I hear from the umpire community, we made the following changes:

1) lighter weight for summer wear (our shirt = 5 oz moisture wicking; Smitty = 5.5 oz)
2) we added 1/2" to the sleeve length and 1" to sleeve opening (better when wearing chest protectors)
3) additional length to body for additional tuck in length

I agree about the unknown brands being a waste of money. I have seen them also. Due to the time frame of production and the season approaching, we bought about 1000 of these unseen (again, we have used this manufacturer for other items, and their quality is very good). When they hit the door, we could not believe how good they are. So much, that for 2013 we are adding at least 3 colors (black, powder blue & carolina blue/black). Because of the current demand of the MLB black shirts, I ordered a few hundred of them as well for immediate delivery (due in here anytime now, you will also see those on ebay when I receive them).

Because of production time, I cancelled the label placement due to delaying the shipment by another week, & I needed them here more than I needed the label on them. We will worry about our label later. As you can see from our feedback, it is very good. I have had leagues buying 30-50 of these at a time for their umpires after somebody bought 1, like you are thinking, and I get the same great feedback/response.

I encourage you to buy 1 (or a hundred!) and give us your feedback/thoughts. It is the only way we can learn and make any necessary adjustments. But again, we really like them.

thanks for asking,

Terry

Hi Terry -
I am VERY IMPRESSED with this shirt!

Let me just tell you that the longer length is a HUGE improvement and probably the #1 feature of this shirt (along with the price). I can not wait until you get more colors.


You probably already know this, but in 2012, Smitty changed the sizing on their shirts. They now "size up" for the plate like many other mfrs (except ump-attire ultimate and a few smaller brands). I would suggest doing the same with your shirt next year and make it clear to the buyer.

Please keep me in the loop on any other equipment you have.

Cheers

Hey!

Glad you love the shirt as much as we do. I think we still need to add a little more length to them, as well as some minor tweaking. I agree about the plate shirt and the bigger size. Before we order for next year, I will take some new measurements and we will adjust the sizing. Your (and many others) feedback is critical as we continue to grow this portion of our business.

BTW - the new black MLB replica shirts are in - FANTASTIC!!! They cost me $2 more due to a lower qty and the body piping, so they are $22 (ebay auction number: 270977216585). I did a special make up of the same shirt for a group in Chicago. It was vegas gold body with black trim. Lots of positive feedback.

Don't hesitate to call me anytime at the store.

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

Terry


_________________________________________________________________




The t-ringer shirt is well-constructed. This shirt is noticeably lighter,thinner and softer than my 2011 powder blue smitty. However, when I compare this same shirt to my 2012 Navy Smitty, the material seems to be a similar weight and thickness, but the material is still softer. I wonder if Smitty has gone with a lighter material in 2012? Or is it just a Navy thing? Not sure. . .
Posted Image



The t-ringer shirt is sized in the chest exactly like a 2011 smitty.
The t-ringer shirt is one inch longer in length, but Terry says he wants to make this a little longer next year which is a good thing, I think. I know a few tall umpires who have issues staying tucked with a CP.
Posted Image



The t-ringer shirt is at least another 1/2" longer in the sleeve and has a wider opening.

The color is identical to the Navy Smitty. It is a dark, rich, consistent Navy which is darker than my Navy Dalcos (which are way too light). Also, the navy collar matches the navy shirt. I have had Navy shirts where the collar and shirt do not match (darker collar).

i agree with you.,the officials call in west virginia.. i bought 7 of those shirts off of terry in navy.. i got them for 15.99 ./..they are made in egypt and i was very impressed . the material was light and it stretches and the sizing is very good .. very roomy.. i also bought smitty plate pants from terry at officials call and loved them..i bought 5 hats and a few accessories..he threw in a couple of line up cards gave me a good discount and free shipping. this was last month and i just ordered another pair of base pants and leg guards from him.. he is very nice . wants ur business and my order was delievered in three days. all my fellow umpires should give this guy a try..im a honigs guy but officials call in west virginia is very very good..and those egyptian shirts i rate them right up there with my smitty and new honigs shirt at a better price

I talked to Terry about shirts when I ordered my Champro shins from him. I have used him for several orders over the last couple years. I didn't order any shirts since I wear them about 4 times a year.

I talked to Terry about shirts when I ordered my Champro shins from him. I have used him for several orders over the last couple years. I didn't order any shirts since I wear them about 4 times a year.


Navy that is...

About the only time we wear Navy anymore is when we are mandated by the state to do so. For me that was Saturday working the stick for the 4A State Finals.

For my money, Cliff Keen is by far the best. Nice material, well made, and they last forever.

That is my experience also. I really like this shirt.

I use Cliff Keen. They are super thin and breathable material. I love them.


My favorite Plate shirt is a Cliff Keen, it just seems to wear well over my equipment. On the bases I use Smitty, They seem to be cut a little tighter for a smaller build like myself.
