About Us

Since acquiring the "Original Smitty Lanyard Company" in 2004, Smitty Official's Apparel based in Canton, OH has grown from a company with two products (Smitty and Noose Lanyards) to a nationwide manufacturing leader of sports officials' apparel with over (10,000) products in various styles and sizes.

Our goal is to provide quality products and services at an affordable price for dealers and ultimately sports officials.

With input from our dealers and sports officials, we have aggressively developed products to stay current with the trends and requests of officials.  The implementation of "Body Flex" shirts and "4-Way Stretch" pants is just one example how Smitty continues to expand the product options for sports officials.

In 2013 the addition of a complete line of Dye Sublimated Shirts with over (1000) current styles manufactured in the USA for various sports associations confirms our commitment to meeting the needs of sports officials.

The newly designed Smitty Official's Apparel website provides you with detailed information about our current product line.  This website is for information only and we encourage you to contact your nearest Smitty dealer to place your order today.

Thank you for your interest and commitment to Smitty products.
