NCAA Officials wear what "brand" of Ref Shirt?

You see them.....but what "brands" are the preferred shirts worn by the country's best? How about those new lightweight "microsofter" or "hightech" shirts?

Any NCAA officials out there willing to share their secret?

I'm not an NCAA official, however, I wear what makes me most comfortable. I would guess that's probably going to be the most common answer you're going to get. For me I really like The Official's Choice Micro-Softer shirts. Second choice is Honig's Pro-Soft.

Purchase Officials offers Smitty's elite comfortech shirt.

Though, I personally have owned shirts from honigs, an officials choice, and now some Smitty's.

When the micromesh came out, they all seemed to be the same shirt. When the finer micromesh came out, all seemed to be the same material. Smitty's comfertech, the new pro-soft, etc. all seem to be the same material. Smitty's pre-game jacket and Honigs k-19 jacket, seem to be same material/construction.

The new smitty pants I just bought, have sansbelt belt on the inside.

What am I saying? I think they're all the same shirts, just different brand tags on them. Honigs pants though, seem to be nothing like sansbelt's pants, in either construction or materials.

They're not the same shirts. I have shirts from three different vendors and they are all different.

They are not the same shirt. I own a shirt from all 3 and they are not that close in feel or look when you get up close. One of the shirts seems to fade real easily. One shirt fits bigger than the others. Looks like a polyester shirt but feels like a micro-soft shirt. They are clearly not the exact same.

Peace
