  1. When I am working the plate (chest protector on), all of my umpire shirts become untucked during the game. Especially in front. I am tall and I wear 3XL. I tried a 4XL but it was way too baggy. I have tried Smitty, Honig's, and Champro and they are all about the same. Are there any other manufacturers that make longer shirts or even tall sizes (3XLT)? Thanks very much for your advice.
  2. In going through my umpire wardrobe, I have discovered a treasure trove of items that no longer fit. I have three XL Cliff Keen shirts that are now too big - Cream, powder, and navy (yeah I know!) The navy had an NJSIAA patch on the left sleeve and all three have American flags on the back near the collar. All are in very good condition and I would wear each on the field if they still fit. $15 plus shipping each. $35 plus shipping for the lot. Friends and family PP only. More to come.
  3. So I'm cleaning out my closet of excess equipment. On the list is various shirts. All are 2XL. All are in excellent condition, hardly worn. Price for each shirt is $25/shipping included. If you purchase additional shirts, each additional shirt is $15 (i.e. 2 shirts-$40/shipping included, and so on). Pro-Blue Navy Blue Powder Blue Black
  4. So we've got a new group of guys taking over our little league board and trying to make an effort. On of the goals is to get more coaches/dads working the field. So to help with that, we are looking to get a couple sets of gear that isn't 20 years old. One of our masks weighs in at around 4 pounds. I've been watching craigslist, but I figured I'd ask as well. Our shin guards will work, but mostly it's shirts and masks. I'll be honest, we aren't the poorest league around, but we are saving up for a place to hit and throw here in the PacificNW during the fall and winter months. As well as improving our stadium. (I'm lobbying for an umpires' lounge, but it's an uphill battle. ) So any help would be greatly appreciated. I already started by donating a Honig's mask, a large blue navy shirt and a Honig's intermediate CP. Things I picked up while gathering my own gear. If somebody is interested in a trade, I do have a set of Honig's shin guards, K20-19. I'd be willing to trade those for some stuff as well. They aren't new, but they are in good shape and include the thigh pad. Thanks.
  5. In the time since the Elbeco, there have been several varieties of umpire shirts making their ways into The Show, and then trickling down to the other junior leagues. Until 2010, shirts all featured a twin stripe of trim – colors coordinating with the main base color – on the sleeve cuff and the collar. This has been referred to as "Traditional" or "Classic": I have been unable to determine if Majestic took over and became the official supplier of MLB beginning with 2010, or they trotted out the new style, but it was indeed 2010 that the new "Vertical Stripe" debuted: This has been known as the MLB Black / MLB Sky (or MLB Powder or MLB Blue), or Modern Black, or Vertical Stripe... I think this should be thus be named "The '10 Black" (the Ten) and "The '10 Sky". In 2015, Majestic developed a new technical fabric, a smooth lightweight textile that was a departure from the jersey-esque pebble knit. Unable to wait, or let another company beat them to the punch, Majestic rolled it out as a "technical exercise" in an all-black, unadorned shirt for the Major Leagues and they (unfortunately) revisited the Classic navy (thus, setting back the progressive, modern umpire's campaign to end navy by several years). It looks like this: This should be designated "The '15 Black" (the Fifteen). Only a few crews ever used this shirt, and it was not introduced in a Sky blue version. One can only deduce that Majestic rolled out this shirt in Classic Navy so as to appeal and capture sales to some state high school associations which would otherwise be using the same ol' Dalco, Cliff Keen, Smitty or Bumblebrand (made up name) of arcane material shirts. With a full year of the new fabric with which to plan a new style, Majestic's designers debuted a comprehensive attire system, with a new ThermaBase jacket, a new CoolBase jacket, and 2 new shirts, complete with a contrasting panel on the flank and at the collar. It was issued in Black (and charcoal) and Sky Blue (and black). I have dubbed this, appropriately, "The '16 Black" (the Sixteen... of course, there is the Sixteen Sky). Thus far, only Smitty has produced a rendition of the '16, but I am hopeful that other manufacturers will soon (TheOfficialsChoice). Now, with UnderArmour soon to take over the Official Supplier mantel, we may see a continuance of this style, or something decidedly different. The simple fact of the matter is, the Major Leagues and modern umpiring is leaving the "Classic" styles in the dust.
  6. OK ....   I'm getting rid of a couple shirts that just don't make the rotation anymore.   All are XL, with dimensions below (measurements taken across the front just under the armpit).   1) Older, Honigs, Pakistan White, w/ red and navy trim.  It has the older (not so good) quality fabric and collar, see the pics.  The fabric doesn't stretch very good with this vintage Honig's shirt.   Measures 24.5" across the front.  Worn once.  Collar was like this out of the bag.   $10 + shipping   2) Gray with black collar Officials Choice shirt.  This is the classic OC jersey with the 'UmpDry' material.  This was worn maybe 3 times.  It measures 25" across the front.   $10 + shipping   SOLD!   3) Army Green w/ black trim MLB knock-off Officials Choice shirt.  Worn once.  Personally, this is much nicer than the gray shirt (fabric, quality, etc...their MLBs are actually nice).  Again, just didn't make it into the rotation.  This measures 26" across the front.     *** I also have a matching Medium Army Green OC shirt as well.  Measures 22" across the front.   $15 each, + shipping.   SOLD!   PM if interested   Paypal to a friend only.  I'll probably do a USPS priority padded envelope for shipping.
  7. Amongst umpire crews trialling the (purported) new 2015 shirts, Dale Scott's crew has gone Classic. He's doing Classic black w/ twin white pencil lines on the collar... Long-sleeve. His crew is employing the full black jacket w/ Sky and white shoulder stripes. Good look. Must be chilly on the Bay tonight.

  10. Can someone tell me if the colors match between the Honigs Polo Blue and the UA Ultimate Polo Blue?
  11. Can someone tell me of a retail store in Canada (Ontario preferably) that has a retail store to buy umpire jackets/shirts, other than Home Run Sports? If not in Canada, maybe in Buffalo, Niagara, or Pennsylvania?
  12. Like most others, I have the Powder Blue (also called Columbia Blue) shirt w/ white and navy stripe. I'd like to get another, and then was puzzled to find a new shade of blue... Slightly darker Carolina Blue w/ black trim. Right next to it, the Columbia Blue w/ black trim. There's also the Powder (Columbia) Blue w/ white and red trim, but I've been told that's a softball color, and a faux pas to wear (as in, don't). Lastly, there's the new MLB pattern, of all Powder blue (with vertical black piping). Which should I be buying? Would a difference between Carolina and Columbia -blue be that noticeable on-field in youth baseball? Is it totally faux pas to wear the MLB pattern if your partner(s) isn't (aren't)? Is it faux pas to wear MLB pattern if you're not an MLB umpire umpiring less-than-MLB games? The fishbowl for this would be someplace like CDP, where I realize someone always has an opinion on something, but I just want to reduce the (possibility of) snide remarks.
  13. I've got a couple of the red Dalco shirts, i no longer wear red nor do i ever intend to wear it again in the future. Both are in great shape with no fading, rips tears etc. One is size L the other is size XL, Dalco shirts run a little large so keep this in mind. The XL has never been worn! It was given to me by another umpire a year or two ago because it didn't fit him. Send me a PM if you're interested, i'm just looking to give these shirts away to someone just getting started for the cost of shipping.
  14. I have four shirts that I am looking to get rid of. All are either Smitty or Ump Attire shirts and colors are navy blue, powder blue (baseball alternate), cream and black. If you are interested, I am willing to send pictures.
  15. My 14 yr old wants to start umping with me. We need to find him some inexpensive charcoal pants, and powder blue and cream shirts. His pant size would be 34 or 33 waist x 30 or 31 length. His shirt size is Med or Lg. Thanks for any info/leads.
  16. First let me start by saying this thread is being started based on post #29 on this thread here (post #29 by sdix00) http://umpire-empire.com/index.php/topic/12205-favorite-brand-of-shirts/ Secondly, ...based on what I learned from sdix's post, and looking at Terry's ebay auctions, I ordered a couple of these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-Baseball-Softball-Umpire-Shirt-MLB-Black-AWESOME-Free-Shipping-/270977216585?pt=US_Men_s_Athletic_Apparel&var=&hash=item3f17803049 I'm going to start with the negative: First, the picture Terry has on this auction is actually the Smitty MLB replica, not the one he's selling. But, no big deal really. Second, the white stripe on Terry's shirt is almost 2x as wide as the Smitty and/or Majestic MLB shirt. Is this bad? Only if other umpires are watching and would notice. And if you and your partner have the same shirt, it goes virtually un-noticed. Still, it's not accurate. Third, the buttons are a pearlescent white, not black. Ok, now the good stuff: 1) The fabric is light, soft, and stretchy! 2) They launder and come out of the dryer (gentle cycle) very nicely! 3) The difference in cut as described by sdix00 in his post is true. The sleeve opening is a little larger, and the sleeve is a touch longer. 4) The tails, both front and back are long! This makes for a simple tuck that stays there, period! I'm a belt/pant fidget-meister, and last night I barely (if any) bothered with it! It was nice! 5) The buttons, although a pearly white actually provide a decent contrast to an all-black shirt. I thought they'd look bad, but they don't. 6) The stripe doesn't look bad as discussed. Unless you KNOW, or can compare w/ another MLB replica like Smitty, or the Majestic original, you probaby wouldn't know. AND, if you're both wearing one, it disappears.. We wore this shirt last Sunday in 75 degrees and about 25mph winds. VERY COMFY. I also wore it last night in about 72 degrees (both plates) ..again ...light, soft , comfy...nice! I've reported back to Terry with my concerns as noted in this post. I suggested that in order for the shirts to be real replicas, the stripe and buttons should be changed. However, ... for $22 shipped, ...this is a no brainer guys! This is a great value! Terry is very interested in making a great product and openly listened to my suggestions via email and phone. This is a nice piece guys! Pics to follow :D
  17. I received the 2 shirts from SLO8140 and I really like the material. I got 2 shirts. Black, and powder blue with RWB trim. The Powder Shirt the collar is a different darker blue than the rest of the shirt. I don't like that at all!!! Looks kinda weird. The Black looks fine. I like the lengths of the shirts! Big Plus! I will post a better review on here when I get to try them on the field.
  18. Ran into Marshall's the other day just to check and see what they had (you need to check these places for good deals now and again). Success! I found Nike DryFit undershirts, mismarked (no Swoosh) for 10.99! Just wanted to let you guys know if you're looking for good undershirts, ...check Marshall's The hunt is half the fun :D
