Why are baseball pants so long?

This led to a second revolution in baseball hose in about 1910. Instead of a high, colored sock, players began wearing long, colored stirrups over plain white socks, which were called “sanis” because they provided a sanitary layer between the skin and the potentially lethal dye-colored stirrup.

Do socks go over baseball pants?

Regular Pants
Get those socks on first, high and tight. Put your regular-length baseball pants on and slide each ankle-end up to just below the knee, bunching up some of the pants in the process. The pants should now be folded over neatly just below the knee, exposing your high socks.

Are baseball pants supposed to be tight?

You want to fold it enough so that it's snug, but not too tight. This technique is called “rolling.” If you really like this look, you may want to look for knicker-style baseball pants, which only come down past the knees. Most baseball belts are either elastic or leather.

Can a tailor make pant legs wider?

Your pants can only be altered to be bigger if the seam is a regular 5/8 " wide that can only give you 1/2 total on each leg. That is the max you can get to make the leg bigger. Otherwise you would be better to buy another pair of pants that are larger. It's much easier to alter clothes that are bigger than smaller.

Can you make pants bigger?

Letting out the waist on pants or skirts is usually possible by a size - especially suiting. Also on the inseam of pants, one of the seam allowances is usually more generous, and this allows the leg and crotch depth of the pant to increase in size.

Can a tailor make pants waist smaller?

Ready-to-wear, casual pants won't have extra seam allowances to let out the waist, but you can easily make them a couple of inches smaller. You'll also need a good seam ripper, some tailor's chalk, and a good pair of sewing scissors.

Why do baseball teams wear gray on the road?

The road team wore gray because there was a time when it was not as easy to launder the uniforms on the road and gray was a good color to hide some of that. Then, like everything else in baseball until Bud Selig came along, they just kept doing it because they always had.
