Probably a good idea!

Expensive.  I live in a pretty warm area year round so no need, but they've always looked cool.

I understand your opinion on this, but $295 for a custom made “jacket” isn’t a bad deal.

I’m sure these don’t contain anywhere near the quality of fabrics or craftsmanship that a Brooks Brothers or other American manufacturer’s sportcoat has.  Those places also have a much larger economies of scale (ie volume).  This isn’t a bad deal as long as the quality is somewhat decent.

Im curious who is making these.

I live in San Diego, and have had three plate coats over the years. I just couldn't get the annual use out of them to justify the closet space. A game or two in March, and maybe on in November, and that was it. Anything above 60, and I was sweating too much to be cool.

Yeah, they're cool, no doubt. And there's no doubt in my mind that I'll end up with another down the road, gear junky that I am.

I’m in OC and I can break out mine a few times a year. Love it when I do

I got my plate coat from Out West today and am impressed. It is very nice and fits well outside of the lengthy sleeves. I’m 5’7 and the sleeves and body are long even on the “short.” I plan on taking it to my tailor on Monday and having the sleeves adjusted. Outside of that, I’m happy and excited to break this thing out. Coaches and fans get excited and know we mean business and actually care about our profession when we come out looking professional in our coats. If you desire to look as good as you umpire then I’d definitely recommend ordering one of these from Out West.

We have a guy here that got one. But I won't get to see it until at least the 17th because he is down in San Bernardino for Western Regional clinic.
