I referee soccer games and receive 1099-Misc income. Deduct mileage and registration fees. Can I also deduct the cost of referee uniforms?

New uniforms came out in 2016 and had to purchase many of them - am hopeful I can use them as a deduction.

Yes - you can deduct as a business expense on your Schedule C, uniforms that are required for your work and not suitable for everyday use (not usable as street clothes).  Referee uniforms would qualify under these guidelines.
