Gerry Davis poly spandex pants in Umpire Equipment Posted yesterday at 04:26 PM · Report reply 36 minutes ago, kylejt said: The "wider" part has me confused, too. The Smitty plate pants, IMO, are far too wide, as are the base pants. I can live with the plates, but the base pants do tend to flap in the breeze. I'm not a fan of the expander waist bands, as I don't care for any extra bulk around my beltline, if you know what I mean. These golf pants have enough give in them as it is. Oh, and yet another shade of charcoal? Fantastic. p.s. why do we need 3 belt loops in the back like that? Or, is that in place of a logo? That is their "signature" look.
