Officials Uniform
 
Hello,

Ordered a new Smitty's V Neck XL shirt along with a new pair of Smitty's pleated beltless pants

I've searched but found nothing, I'm just curious if I need an undershirt due it looks like its see through?

If so color and prefered preference on undershirt?

Black undershirts are pretty standard around my area, but you'll want to verify with local officials in your area. It's not about seeing through it, it's just more comfortable. Personally, I prefer Under Armour, but I also have a lot of left over black undershirts from wearing BDU's. Now that we've gone to ABU's, I only have one use for the black shirts I have.

As of now, I'm still doing elementary and middle school. I just received my officials license from KHSAA and will hopefully start doing JV atleast next season.

Just trying to get into the rhythm of everything as to official dress.

While I know this isn't Under Armour, I'm not even sure where to get that product locally. Would this suffice?

Thanks

Personally I've never worn an undershirt while officiating, which is weird cause I always have one on everywhere else. I have the Smitty Micromesh. I don't see the point of having an undershirt with this if is supposed to help cool me down anyways.
I would just recommend to go with what is comfortable for you.

Yeah, may not even go with one tonight... We'll see.

I've got 2 5th grade and 2 4th grade games tonight. Pay for a decent dinner and my stuff I've bought so I'm happy.

I have always worn an undershirt. It protects your stripes from sweat stains and makes them last longer. IMO it also looks better.

Best place to get the best undershirt? I've got games tonight.

You don't need an 'Officials supply house" for a fricken undershirt. Go to your local megalo-mart or sporting goods store, or Kohls, or....

I have a couple, wore them, didn't like them, don't wear one.

Walmart, Target, Kohl's; any department store will carry black undershirts, if you want one. I don't wear them to cool me down, but because I don't like the feel of the polyester against my skin.

Why not an Under Armour Black shirt?

I just got a couple of black t-shirts and cut the sleeves off. Works for me.

Yes, and easily found at Wal-Mart.

I wear a sleeveless UA compression shirt. Cost $20 or so, but I like the shirt, so it was worth it to me (and I had a gift certificate, so it was free).

Can you believe I went to our walmart and they did not have any black V Neck Shirts. I was in shock!

I'll just find an old black shirt for tonight to use.

I don't wear a V-neck. Nobody notices that little bit of collar above the V-neck.
