Also, sometimes it's desirable to use Dickies work pants as part of the umpire uniform. They are durable, relatively inexpensive, and easy to care for. Please seek out gray (charcoal gray preferred over light gray). These are available at Dickies outlets in San Diego County, as well as online, including the Dickies website:
