  1. Again, very sexy. Nice base shade too. Way better than early 2000s. Shame it is the road alt, although I suspect that may change over time. People here in SD love this one.
  2. Reliable sources indicate that there is in fact trimming on collar and sleeves. We shall see though.
  3. Agreed and I think its because the letters are less angular and fat/wide. They have made the letters both skinnier and rounder and it helps a huge amount. I think the stubbiness of the old logo is why the P and S had to be larger. It made the whole think out of balance and not look right on the jersey...particularly the brown one.
  4. New Padres Wordmark from their site:
  5. The differences are less striking when the wordmark is arched but it is still a big improvement. It's much clearer and less puffy/angular. Subtle change but a nice one.
  6. Comparison of a new version of Padres word mark that showed up on their charity site (albeit as "COMPADRES") with their old wordmark. To me, its a big improvement. P, A, D and R are more rounded and all of the letters have a skinnier & longer feel which is way better.
  7. Here is another look:
  8. As a Padres fan, I love it. IMO, the brown needs to be dark or else it looks too much like real poop. I never liked the brown they use on the Friday light and had a greenish tint. This looks darker and more red which I think will hold up over time better. Plus once on the field, it will clearly register as brown.
  10. Someone mentioned something earlier that I thought was a great point about the Padres. Last year when they announced the new Browns and the ASG home uniform, they did a big reveal at Petco with fans and announcers. It was all over the local news and newscasters were wearing the jerseys during the Sports segments, etc. This year, they did an extremely tepid reveal over social media. There has been virtually no press over this other than negative organic press on SM criticizing the uniforms. Most revealing, the team has not even commented on the new uniforms in the press, whether on or off the record. All of this is extremely curious. I believe this must be somehow related to the departure of Mike Dee (BTW, I am not saying this is why he was fired but I feel like there is some connection given how involved he was in all things marketing). These were submitted to MLB in May and then Dee was fired 5 months later probably as a result of the health records scandal. I'm purely speculating, but I feel like current ownership finds itself stuck with these as they were so connected to Mike Dee. Given the overwhelming negative response and the fact that Dee is gone, I can't help but feel that these are a placeholder until a new CEO comes in and hopefully designs a sophisticated cohesive branding scheme going forward. That is my hope at least.
