Crew How-To: Pressing and Ironing Your Umpire & Referee Pants
Ty gives you detailed, step-by-step, instructions to keep your umpire or referee pants looking sharp and crisp.
The clips that hold the waistline tabs in are very cheaply installed and came out the 1st time I bent over luckily the button held so my pants were usable. Other than that the pants were fine.
Comfortable umpire pants. Ordered to my size with the extra stretch waistband a belt makes them perfect fit. Could get away with using as plate pants in a pinch enough leg room for me.
These umpire pants are as good as advertised! The material breathes very well to help keep cool on hot days. The expander waistband allows for a perfect fit.

|Q:||I wear a size 32. With the expander waistband, should I go with a size 30?|

It is recommended to order your regular pants size when ordering these umpire pants. The expander waistband offers 2 extra inches of comfort, if needed. If you are still unsure, we offer free returns to those in the contiguous United States so there is no risk of ordering multiple sizes to see which works best.– Brandon Lawson
