I'd clarify they usually wore the REGULAR navy alts on Sundays. There have been several weekend home series this season where the fauxbacks were worn all weekend. However, the navy BiG set / hat was worn pretty sparingly this season...not sure why.  They wore the heck out of that set last year.

 

Must not be selling well. 

 

Good.  I want a return to the original, not some terrible half-way compromise.   Not to mention that they insisted on using the incorrect BiG logo everywhere on that uniform.

Disgraceful.  Plus it irritates the hell out of me that they removed the pants stripes just so they wouldn't clash with this Frankensteinian monstrosity.

I can see the Marlins doing what the Brewers are: sticking with the current set while milking a throwback look for all it’s worth.

This uniform is just fine. Way better than B R E W E R S

Well, after a season of the Tigers going with the big "D" on the caps, I am hoping for a return to the smaller "D" or at least down size this one a bit.  The fan's reaction in Motown to the larger letter on the cap was not well-received at all.

What about matching the D on the jersey?I feel like this and the cap should’ve been good for the Tigers but it doesn’t look good at all.

The solution for the Tigers was always simple - make the old jersey “D” the unified one between the cap and jersey and call it a day. They instead chose the wrong “D” and took it too far by enlarging it on the cap in addition. They went from having my favorite look in the league to a rather awkward one.

And yet this is somehow still their best road look.  Hopefully it's what they wear tonight since it's the closest thing to an actual counterpart to the throwbacks.

Just putting it out there that these are my favorite Brewers scripts of all time and I think they outclass the 1982 scripts in every imaginable way (the home more-so than the road, which is basically this minus the tail).  I hope they're considered as part of a long overdue rebrand.

MKE has really become the preferred abbreviation that the city uses to refer to itself. 


I'm very aware of this, I just don't care for the inconsistency of MIL vs MKE (Granted, what else is new with the Brewers? :p).

That, and when you're the BREWers, you almost have to go with BREW City, right?

I would have liked Brew City.  

 

Just can’t argue with using the name Milwaukeeans use themselves.

Similar to how Portland teams still tend use POR where all other cultural references seem to be PDX.

Eh, if we're allowed to get really picky (and let's face it, if not here then where can we?), I've never liked the tails on those scripts. The road script in particular - it's really awkward coming off that final "e".

 

What's wrong with just putting this across the front of the roads?

As for the homes, the script isn't much better.  Don't like how the vertical line of the "B" just hangs there.   They would do better adopting the 1948 Brewers script (in royal and gold, natch):

Much better balanced, so much more pleasing to my eye.  The "B" is more natural, and the swoop from "s" to tail is actually justified.

The logo and colors just doesn't fit with that fancy script and font. They threw it all in together, and it just looks like a tacky version of what they wear now.

The throwback letters are perfect for royal blue and yellow. Simple, clean, and looks like no other team:

The stars of the show here are the bright colors, pinstripes, and logo. The letters are sharp, and complements the look. Cursive script here just isn't necessary, imo. Now if they went with navy and yellow, I would say you could go with the cursive script to liven up the look.

Only because HPSTR  is too long.

I’ve gotten to see 2 teams today (the Rockies & Brewers) that I rarely watch.

 

I like Colorado’s away uniforms but I’m not a fan of the solid black socks.  They need a touch of purple to perfect the color distribution.  It’s so nice to see a baseball uniform that isn’t blue or red.  I can even live with the CR cap logo.

 

I also have an issue with the socks that Mikwaukee wore today.  The “gold” in the socks looked considerably darker than the gold elsewhere in the uniform.  The Brewers uniform isn’t lacking for dark coloring, so the gold really needs to stand out.

I would argue that MKE has taken on a... hipstery... connotation, and is used mostly by transplants from the WOW Counties.

 

Even as a child, I was perplexed when I found out the airport code wasn't MIL. Why MKE? Who the hell is Mike? ?

As for the 90s scripts, I stand by my preference. But even if they brought back the 1982 scripts wholesale, you won't hear any complaints out of me. 

 

Besides, if they end up winning the World Series or even the NLCS in the retros, you'd kind of have to make them the full time home unis.
