  1. Behind his right shoulder in the left hand side. SD looks like they changed the style.
  3. Brown uniforms coming in fall Padres’ return to brown will be unveiled after World Series By KEVIN ACEE MAY 30, 2019 2:53 PM The moment for which so many Padres fans have been waiting could come as soon as a few days after the conclusion of this year’s World Series. Sure, a parade could be held downtown. But far more certain is that the world this fall will see the uniforms the Padres plan to be wearing when they win their first championship. The team’s chief marketing officer said Thursday the Padres will unveil their new brown and gold ensemble as early as November. The “rich brown and vibrant gold” color scheme and the font for the numbers and letters have been finalized. The specifics were submitted to Major League Baseball and Nike earlier this month. That essentially brings to the finish line a process that began more than two years ago. The decision to return to the color combination the Padres wore from their inception in 1969 through 1984 came after two rounds of surveys and two rounds of dial research groups indicated it was the preference of the largest segment of Padres fans. “I think it’s going to be a look and feel that San Diego can be proud of,” Wayne Partello said. “It’s an answer to what we heard.” The Padres want to guard as many details as they can until the unveiling. But they did allow the Union-Tribune to witness some of their research groups. At that time, fans involved seemed to favor a white home jersey that included pinstripes. Partello said Thursday that the word mark for the “San Diego” on the team’s road jersey will be different than the current version. Those away uniforms are sand, not baseball’s traditional gray. However, the sand is based in a brown palette, which will make it unique from the sand color the Padres wore on the road from 04-10. The Padres are doing “some fine tuning, some detail work,” such as determining design of outerwear and a subtle change to the “SD” logo. Padres Executive Chairman Ron Fowler has vowed this will be the last uniform tweak for many years for a team that has had at least 10 significant jersey iterations (with several more tweaks) in its half-century of existence. “The only consistency in our uniforms has been their inconsistency,” Partello said. “This moving forward is about consistency. This is about locking in on a look and feel that is consistent with what the fans and community wanted and moving forward with a look that is only us. The thing we heard is that the desire is for unique. This will be different.” MLB does not allow for an announcement of this kind before the end of the World Series. The exact date of the reveal will depend on the schedule of some Padres players the team would like to participate in the event. The new version will be for sale at the time of the announcement.
  4. The pants for the fleet really bug me, They should have yellow or gold chevrons at least, Think yellow pants or a darker grey would look so much better.
  5. They will put the CHARGE back in san diego football, And make us forget about our ex evil owner and team.
  6. Pads in there new camos in action
  7. According to dennis lin of the Union Tribune, brown has been getting very high praise by the fans and ownership plans on going fulltime with brown next season.
  8. I don't mind the monochrome look like a lot on here do, I always wondered what the chargers would look like with there current blue uni set, can somebody do a mock up of it please, i remember when they wore there old blue on blue for the first time ever in the 2003 game with the dolphins.
  9. There is only one brown and gold the pads should use, It is there best in my opinion and would still work today, I am surprised nobody has even mentioned it.
  10. In his second official day as the Padres President and CEO, Mike Dee said all the things the fans expected him to say, topped by the obligatory “winning is the No. 1 priority.” Dee said he is “well aware” that many Padres fans have no connection to the current uniforms and many see them as ties to the failed Jeff Moorad-Garfinkel leadership. “We’re going to listen,” said Dee, who overhauled the look of the Miami Dolphins in his last job as President and CEO of the NFL team. Dee then asked about the Padres traditional brown-and-gold colors, an redo of the red-white-and-blue uniforms of the Pacific Coast League Padres and the orange-trimmed uniforms the 1998 National League champions wore. “A lot of things are possible,” said Dee. “It is for us to make it happen. And to make it happen with a smile on everyone’s face. As a baseball organization, I don’t think there’s anything we can’t accomplish.”
  11. I'm surprised no one has really mentioned how nice the bolts looked in there road white throwbacks against the chefs today, These are beautiful and it just shows how nice white on white can sometimes work if done right.
  12. They were saying on sports radio here that what the pads wore vrs the reds last sunday was a new upgraded camo jersey, not sure if there coolbase or not but they did look alot more lighter and shinier, plus the camouflage looked a little different then what they had a few weeks ago, They looked sweet to me.
  13. Im sure somebody with there vast knowledge can explain to me why this is a rule in the nfl.
  14. I take south park, Cartman as my linebacker would kick ass, And kenny as much as he would get hit and killed as my qb would comeback more then vinny testaverde.
  15. To bad they are only going to wear them two times this year, I would not mind seeing these a few more times during the season.
  16. Yeah that and reverse the bolt on the sleeve then they would be perfect imo.
  17. Im surprised this hasnt really been discussed yet. But the bolts busted out there new powder blues against the raiders. And i must say that those are some sweet looking unis, They will never be as great as the original powder blues, but i did like these more then i thought i would.
