For me, it's not about the pant stripe: It's about the marketing department doing things just to do them, all the while washing their hands of issues that actually matter, like guest service. The stripe is just symbolic of a larger disconnect between Sox marketing and Sox fans.
Maybe they're easier to clean. I can't imagine keeping a stupid little white stripe clean for 81 games a year is all that easy to do.
But I'm sure it's just because the Sox are so inept at fan marketing.
Seriously. It's a freaking stripe.
