No I would buy 1 USA uniform just so that I had one.

I will wear my current set of 5 ASA shirts and 4 hats until they are worn out. 2 Shirts and all hats are brand new.

Okay. Read it as you would be one uniform IF you had a national before 2020.

Being the pessimist that I am, what I envision is umpires showing up in 2017/2018 with nothing but ASA logo and others with only an USA logo. Or a UIC who prescribes one specific uniform and an umpire knows what s/he wears locally must be the official uniform and shows up without that which is needed. You would think that there wouldn't be issues like this at nationals, but it happens. For a group that that has a job which includes providing rules and directions, some umpires are not very good at following direction themselves.
