Smitty Long Sleeve Vertical Stripe Umpire Shirt
Added the long sleeve umpire shirt to my options for the cooler, early spring games that don't require the full jacket.
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.
