you see ur readers arent given freebies and being paid to promote the unwarranted ump attire..how u came to the conclusion last year ump attire ultimate shirts were the best is beyond my imagination...ur readers dont think much of thos overpriced and overrated shirts...smittys are the best and honigs are second best..just like the readers have spoken...be more partial and stop plugging ump attire all the time...many other better retailers and wtih much better pricing

I JUST GOT MY TWO UMP-ATTIRE ULTIMATE SHIRTS THE OTHER DAY. I WAS SO DISSAPOINTED. FORGET THE COST 75 DOLLARS FOR THESE SO OVERATED SHIRTS. MY SMITTY SHIRTS FIT BETTER AND ARE MORE COMFORTABLE 50% CHEAPER. I WILL NEVER MAKE THIS MISTAKE AGAIN AND ORDER THE ULTIMATE SHIRT AGAIN. HELL MY HONIGS SHIRTS FROM LAST YEAR MADE IN PAKISTAN ARE BETTER

Was a little surprised by your results and your "anonymous" comments given the positive feedback we receive on a regular basis and the substantial increase in sales so far this year for these Made in the USA shirts.

If anonymous 2 is unhappy with the shirts, you certainly need to return them for a refund. You are welcome to ask for me, and I'd be happy to handle the details.
