Short Sleeve Jackets

Anyone know where you can buy the Short sleeve or convertable sleeve jackets the Majors had last year??

Those aren't jackets, they're smocks. They looked ridiculous.

Look, it's either cold, or it's not. Wear a long sleeved jersey if you can't decide.

Only MLB umpire groupies will be sporting these this year.

Don't be that guy.

It would be an honour to be that guy, I thought they looked Awesome, and in Canada, we have lots of days where a windbreaker that isn't long sleeved would be great. Sorry you don't like them.

yeah, i would use a long sleeved shirt with under armour instead of a short sleeved jacket. i've never seen those, but i dont think that would be my cup of tea.

So about an extra foot of sleeve length makes that much of a difference between a regular pullover and those "smocks?"

Sorry, Im in the "those jackets are hideous" group.

Its just a matter of time before Honig's starts selling them, though.

Ward and Patch has a windbreaker that can be converted to short sleeves if need be. It comes in Navy or Black.

Funny, I did a search on the Majestic number given above and it brought up another thread where you mocked someone looking for this jacket last year. What's the point?

Also note that this fashion advice is being given by someone who has posted that he wears black ball bags with a navy shirt.

Maybe he's shooting for the bruise look.

1. I know of some associations that require black hat, belt and ball bags with all shirt colors.

2. I think black pretty much goes with most colors.

True it goes with most colours, Navy blue just ain't one of them. LOL

Except navy blue.

And the darker gray pants don't go with navy, either.

Are you saying the darker gray pants don't go with navy shirts or navy ball bags?
