Smitty Long Sleeve Vertical Stripe Umpire Shirt
Like all the Smitty shirts this one is also a good quality shirt. My problem with this shirt and the reason I have given it a 2-1/2 rating is the sleeves. The sleeves hang very loose and since they have no stretchy cuff the sleeve length is too long for my 33/34 shirt sleeve length arms. I am planning to take it to a tailor and have either a stretchy cuff added or have the lower sleeve altered to make the fit a bit tighter and better at the wrists. But my question is why do I have to spend that extra money?? Smitty should take care of this issue as I know this has been a complaint about the shirt for a couple of years - just put the ribbed cuff back on the shirt. Oh well - I still like the long sleeve shirt for those cooler days that you don't need a jacket so I put up with these things.

I have both Honig's black long sleeve and Cliff Keen navy long sleeve. Honig's buttons small and cheap, length not as long. Cliff Keen material extremely stretchy light. I really like Smitty collar is bigger than Honig's and material length, buttons far superior. Of course I use with long sleeve undershirt in cooler weather.
A nice umpire shirt for the cooler games. This shirt is very comfortable compared to the older style long sleeve shirts that I had. I go back and forth on whether or not I like the open ended sleeves...sometimes it's nice to have the freedom there but the cuffs do look a little more professional I think.
