I wish Honigs didn't decide to go with an out of country manufacturer for their polywool pants. The new pants look and feel horrible. But they decide to change the same price for a lesser product.

So now I have to turn to either Smitty (which I haven't been impressed with in the past) or the new Davis-Fechheimer pants (which I have yet to personally see).

I went with the Fetchheimer pant and I think it is the best out. Solid, well made, holds creases and looks professional. Buy without fear if you want to look good.

The main reason you see all the different shades, in my opinion, is the price of the original Honig's polywool. When you factor in tax, shipping and having a shop hem them, you were talking a C note for a pair of drawers. Most folks needed 4 to 6 pair, if they were working a lot, so that's a good chunk o' change.

Enter the competitors, and their solutions pictured above.

If we had black pants, we'd all be a little closer to being uniform, no matter what offshore factory made your pants.

Then we would have guys with, between black and grey. Much the same way we have charcoal to pink. Even with the same type of pants.

It has not been like that in football. Everyone looks the same.

Would the dust of some of the baseball fields we work on show up more on black pants?

This is an exhilarating yet terrifying proposition... Why? Because it would truly and utterly be the death-knell, the coup'de'grace, the end for the Navy shirt, and the Navy-trimmed shirts and accessories.

Whatever would the state of Ohio do?! Virginia would likely implode! Wisconsin's population would drop by around 300 guys who list "umpiring" as their last profession and are unable to purchase 2 pairs of black umpire pants, let alone a new umpire shirt and relinquish the lone Navy shirt they bought in 2002.

Associations would split and crumble.
