The Correct Call!
A Sharp Dressed Man! - The New White Uniform
FEBRUARY 5, 2018 - "Cuz every girl's crazy for a sharp dressed man!"
So what do you think of the new white uniform shirt for USA Softball? I ordered one just because it was a new item in our www.OfficialGear.com catalog. It was such a new idea that Duffy Latham gave me a call and asked, "Hey Michael, what is this product number?" He then followed with, "Really? I never heard about a white shirt option." And with my order placed, I quickly learned that the shirt was back-ordered, but that it would arrive shortly.
I our first Utah USA Softball tournament of the year in St. George, Duffy shower up with the new shirts. Paul Sudweeks and I were slated for the first game and we broke the plastic package seals and hit the field.
KNEE JERK REACTION - I though the shirt was way too pretty and white to be of any long term use, especially with the red dirt of St. George flying through the air. I am happy to report that after using it for two games with Paul over the weekend, it washed up clean and pretty this morning.
PUBLIC RESPONSE - Players, coaches, and fans immediately took notice of the new apparel. The common response was... "Wow!"
FEATURES - The shirts feature a navy insert down the sides and navy blue lettering over the left chest. If I had an immediate design change, then it would be to go with a solid navy collar to make it much more easily cleanable.
SIZING - As with all of the new logo shirts, I have found that going with a larger size is better due to the slightly shorter sleeve lengths. My chest protector has bicept extension protectors and normal sizing does not cover them adequately.
Make it a great day! Michael Leavitt - Orem, Utah
