Carolina Mudcats commemorate old-school Brewers unis

Recommended Posts

Nice to see OT Sports get some business... that catfish just looks wrong in Brewers colors, though.

I know powder blue is a divisive issue, but I feel like the Brewers were one of the few teams who actuly pulled it off.

 

I'd put the Royals and Phillies in that category too.

Even the farm club a thousand miles away knows what the Brewers should be wearing.

They're not even the only Brewers farm club who gets it...

...hell, even teams outside of baseball get it...

I get that the 1982 fauxbacks and the BiG aren't everyone's cup of tea.  But it's a distinctive look that's instantly recognizable as "BREWERS," and it happened completely organically.  The organization stuck with the current look for almost 20 years now... not only did it lose, it seems to lose a little more each year.  Why are they still fighting it?

Their solution was to try to have it both ways...hence the navy/yellow BiG set.   I don't know why they are so stuck on their current look either.  It's not like there is any extra added value from winning a championship in the set.  The Brewers would be a prime candidate for a Houston / Toronto fauxback makeover.  Those teams did it right and the Brewers certainly have the pieces from past looks to do it as well.

Makes it even more notable that every time anybody wants a tribute to the Brewers, they do it in royal and gold.  Even the Brewers themselves.  So how come we’re stuck with the horrible bland uniforms?

Yeah, they bought the team during the off-season.

 

FWIW, I've no problem with the Brewers powder blues.  I've no problem with the old 80's uniforms, in fact I think they should go back to the pinstripe, either with "BREWERS" on the chest as before or the ball-in-glove on the chest, Yankees style.

Hell, they’re halfway there.  They already created a gorgeous fauxback home uniform, they just need to do the same with the late 80s roads and they’re done.

On royal blue pinstripes?  Waaaay too Cubs-like for my tastes.

The 1982 look has proven its timelessness over the past decade.  Much like the Jays and Astros, they really don't need to reinvent the wheel on this one. I would prefer button down versions of the powder blue roads, but I'd be happy with Gothamite's suggestion as well. 

EDIT: If they brought back the gold-paneled hat, I'd pair it with the homes rather than the roads.  Or limit it to batting practice or a blue alt.  Better color balance that way.

Just think about how great that's going to look with the UA logo over the L.  Can't wait!!!

They got the muddy colors down, but it's not really the old-school Brewers look without a generic script; the Mud Cats script is clearly too nice.

Not understanding what makes the Brewers script more generic than, say, the Dodgers, A's, or White Sox. All are universally regarded as some of the best uniforms in baseball.

I agree wholeheartedly. The current look is so bland and tired and was never anything special to begin with. In addition to that, there is no alternative reason to be attached to the brand since they've been largely mediocre or bad and haven't won anything of note while using it. Pretty much every look before 1994 has been better in the uniform and logo department so I'd be more than down with a fauxback.
