Sometimes the best solution is one that satisfies two needs.
One need is for sports officials in the United States to sometimes be required to have a USA flag patch placed on their referee or umpire shirt where we do not have those customization features in-house. Typically you order, we ship. There is no customization to slow anything down. We have been searching for some ways to get around this lack of customization in our own way.
One way is related to USA flag patches on shirts. On a trial run, we are pre-sewing on Ump-Attire Ultimate V-neck Referee Shirts for basketball and keeping them as an in-stock item and not made-to-order. In that way, you order, we ship. There is no customization to slow your order down. Did I just say that already?
Anyway, if this goes well, we'll do this on some other items. So if you like this idea of pre-sewn patches on shirts, support it with your purchase.
The neat thing is that we are planning on doing this only on items that are "Made in the USA". Makes sense right. You are a patriotic individual and wear your USA flag with pride. You want the shirt to be made here although most manufacturers of referee apparel are moving to overseas sources. Go ahead, look in your closet. What does the tag say where your shirt or pants were made?
For us, we make a point of using US manufacturers where we can. Not only does it provide faster turnaround, which means we are most likely to have it in stock longer, it also provides us with a sense of pride in helping to employ people who need work, especially in a state, Kentucky, with one of the highest rates of unemployment in the country.
Anyway, if this goes well, we'll do this on some other items. So if you like this idea of having your USA flag patch on your "Made in the USA" shirt, support it with your purchase. There I go again being redundant. Perhaps, some things are best said more than once. In that spirit, please share this article with others who might be interested.
