Questions & Answers


Ask a Question
  • Do you make a pant that isn’t so baggy in the leg? I just purchased a new pair of Tapered fit basketball referee pants, when I had them hemmed I asked if they could take in the legs and they couldn’t. I will not be wearing my new pants. What style is the least baggy?

    The Smitty 4-way stretch tapered fit will have a shorter rise, and a more tapered leg. Below is the direct link:

  • I'm 6'9, I have an inseam size is a 39. Will these pants fit my need?

    Typically, these have an unfinished length of 36-37.

  • What are the lengths of the pants?

    All pants come unhemmed at the bottom.  You can add hemming, or get them altered yourself to be the length you need.

  • You should carry pants that have the extendable waist.

    For the referee pants, because a belt is not worn with the uniform, the expandable waist was not a viable option.  This is why we offer the sizing selection in odd and even sizes.  If you find that you are still having difficulty finding the right fit, the Flex belt is a great option for you.

  • do these pants have a flexible waist band?

    These pants are a very fitted waste. They have some flex to them, but they do not stretch or expand at all.

  • Do these pants have belt loops ?

    Those don’t have beltloops, but here is the link to our beltloop pant.

  • what is the rise on the pants?

    What waist size pants are you looking at.  The rise can vary by size.  It is normally about a 17" rise.

  • Do these pants have any sort of stretch to the waist?

    All of the pants that we carry for basketball referees are a fitted waist. Since the pants don't come with belt loops they need to be fitted so they stay up. These pants can be taken in or let out in the waist by a seamstress by two inches to get the best fit possible.

  • Do you have the athletic cut?

    All of our basketball pants are made with an athletic cut. The legs have more room and so does the seat of the pants. If you purchase the pants, and they don't fit to your liking we do offer free returns. Just make sure the pants are not altered before returning them.

Info on Hemming

Important Info on Hemming

Before ordering your pants hemmed to length please read the notes below.

  • Make sure you know your inseam for the Smitty Referee/Umpire pants you are buying. The inseam on your jeans or different brands of officiating pants will be very different from Smitty pants because the rise is different.
  • We use a straight stitch 1" hem with a 1/2" tolerance (32" inseam may actually measure up to 32.5").
  • Hemmed pants CAN NOT be returned for any reason (manufacturer's defect is the only exception).
  • Standard transit time pants will ship in 5-7 business days, and express inseam pants will ship in 2-3 business days (weekends and holidays are not business days).
