Umpire uniforms and equipment for the 2012 season were unveiled earlier today.  Umpire jackets (used during special games like opening day, the All-Star Series, and the Nippon Series) have also made a return, a first since 2004.

Beginning this year, both leagues will rely on SSK for uniforms and Mizuno and Amer Sports (Wilson) for equipment.

UPDATE 1/20 @ 3:20pm - The umpire jackets apparently costs 69,000 yen a piece.
