PANTS & SHORTS
Your waist size = your pant size. Unless otherwise noted, all pants are sized by actual waist size. We recommend that if you wear a 36 inch waist in jeans dress slacks, you'll wear a 36" in any pants available.
MEASURING YOUR WAIST SIZE
Our best recommendation is to pick a pair of pants that fits you well and use that size when ordering.
As a general rule, we recommend you go up 1 size on all pants where you are in between or unsure of sizing.
SPORTS OFFICIALS PANTS FIT LOOSELY
As a sports official, you are expected to look professional but also to be athletic at the same time. With a varying amount of running, turning, bending and kneeling by sport, your umpire and referee pants are made to fit looser in the thighs than non-officiating pants. Umpire pants especially have a longer rise (under the zipper) to allow for repetitive bending.
Pants are purchased unhemmed so you can hem them to your exact specification. Tailored hemming is especially needed for umpire pants given that their pants have a longer rise, by design, than jeans or dress pants.
When you visit a tailor or seamstress, make sure to have him or her measure you while you are in the pair of shoes you are planning to wear with your pants. For umpire plate pants, we advise you to also bring in your shin guards to wear. Shin guards are going to cause the fabric to extend outward, reducing your pants length (resulting in high waters). Generally, this will add 1" to 1 1/2" to your normal (e.g. base pants) hem length.
