I really like what you've done for the Padres! The use of Khaki instead of Yellow is really unique.

 

Keep up the good work!

I love that new Swinging Friar! It's a perfect update. It's clean, elegant, and modern but still in keeping with the classic logo. 

 

Sorry but I don't like the khaki. It's just a little too similar to the brown and its too intense for the road uniform. Maybe use grey, like a battleship? Orange or yellow like the classic padres?

Thank you everyone! I, as always, appreciate the comments!

 

I must admit that I am a little hesitant at the idea of something other than khaki paired with brown, just because there are so many brown/gold and brown/orange concepts out there already. Not that I'm completely against it at all, just that I'm a little hesitant. If a change needed to be made, would lightening the khaki a shade or two work? Or what are everyone else's thoughts on colors?

It's tough. I would say dial down the intensity. Not really lightening but more like softening or diluting. On the other hand, go too far in that direction and its value as an accent color goes down for the home and alternate. It seems that this would broadly end up looking like some of the Padres camo uniforms over the years.

If you want to make the brown pop more against the khaki, how about adding yellow outlines to the wordmarks and logos?

Maybe something like this? In terms of the khaki, just swap out the yellow and orange for white

Another idea could be switching the road numbers/script from brown with a white outline to white with a brown outline.
