Shirts and pants

Ok, what’s the most comfortable shirts and pants people are wearing these days. I lost some weight this offseason and need to update the wardrobe.

Shirts preferably with the flags already on them.

Sansabelt pants (from officiallysports.com)

Smitty shirts (in the “elite” fabric if available, which I don’t think it is for state-specific shirts)

The same things I have been wearing for some time. Sansabelt pants (had the same ones for years) and the lightweight shirts with the wicker fabric. Been using both for years.

Peace

I lost a bunch of weight from last season as well - if you have an opportunity to try shirts on (we have vendors come to our first and second association meetings), definitely try some on. I was surprised that I went down 2 sizes when I was planning on just blindly buying one size lower than last year.

On a side note, our association likes to change shirts every couple of years, which is really annoying. We went from black and white to grey and now back to black and white, but not just regular black and white - it has to be the wide side panel black and white, so I had to buy all new shirts again. And they want us all wearing the same shirts - the dye sublimated kind that has the association patch and flag already dyed onto the shirt, which cost $40 each. Brilliant. I swear they get kickbacks from the shirt manufacturers.

I also had to buy new pants due to the weight loss and am trying the new Smitty 4-way stretch. Haven't worn them yet in a game but they feel a little weird just trying them on. Much lighter than the normal Smitty pants. Not sure I love the way the feel but I will be wearing full length compression pants underneath so I'm hoping it won't bug me.

Anybody have recommendations on shirts? I have a fairly muscular build and it seems that XL is sometimes too big and L looks like I am wearing my child's shirt.

Looking for an athletic cut shirt that isn't too bulky.

I hear Honigs are nice, but I've never tried one on. Always looking for other suggestions.

Nah. If they were getting kickbacks they'd do the soccer thing and expect you to have multiple shirt options.

(US soccer currently has 5 referee shirt colors and introduced a new style this year; serious officials are expected to have all five, preferably in both long and short sleeves. Yup, that's $500 bucks to have the full assortment from the official supplier. And they revise the styles every 5-6 years.)

Sounds like you need a good tailor to mod your shirts to fit properly.

Buy an XL and tailor. Smitty sublimated is good.

Exactly what I was going to say. Get an XL and have a tailor take it in. Did that with four shirts last year and they look great.
