Questions & Answers
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What type of expander is it? Is it like tuxedo pants?
The expander is a stretch type expander, giving about 1.5" on each side. Tuxedo pants are "adjustable waist." So they have a slid and clasp. The Smitty pants are expander.
I wear a size 38 waist. Should I order a 36 in this style pants?
No. You can order your normal waist size.
I have a hard time finding pants in general that fit the size of my rear and thighs, are these made to fit like a relaxed jean? I already have a pair of champro umpire pants that I bought a waist size too big and they were still way too tight to use.
Yes, I think you will find these to be a fuller cut than the Champro.
Are they available in Heather Gray or only charcoal
The expander version are only available in charcoal.
Good morning Fred, If I order 1 Plate pants and 1 Combo, please advise what Combo means? Thanks! Cari Gonzalez
The combo pants can be used for the base or plate.
Are these base pants, late pants, or combo pants?
You can choose either of those 3.
The main product description says "With Expander Waistband", but the product details say "Standard Non-Expander Wasitband"? does it have an expander waistband or not? Also are these base pants, or combo pants?
Good catch... Yes, these pants have the expander waistband. We just forgot to change that line in the description. It has been updated.

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.

- 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).
