I BELIEVE that merchandise revenue is shared, unless it is sold in the "team store", in which case the team keeps it all.

 

That's certainly the NFL model.  But given that no MLB clubs operate their own online shops (unlike NFL teams), I'm not so sure.

Not to mention, some in-park team stores are run by other people.

 

Fanatics running the pirates store, for example.

The Hershey Bears are an example of brown being a potentially incredible design element if you do it right.

FC St. Pauli rocks it, also with a splash of red in there.

I don't want to hear this crap about brown being a lousy color.  Brown is beautiful.

 

It's probably my favorite dark color, personally. I would also love to get my hands on a Hershey Bears jersey.

Just go with the freaking brown already.

 

Plus it will give them a good opportunity for brand synergy with UPS in a few years when MLB starts putting ads on the uniforms.

Thanks. Just wonder since it seems to me, nationwide, the brown sells a lot better than the navy. Haven't seen numbers but in Seattle shops I've checked out, they have the brown but not the navy SD caps. Leads me to believe that those are the more popular ones, probably since they are unique. Still not sure why the team insists on having a generic navy blue that no one except for fans in San Diego buy.

Color Question. Has the Padres brown changed since the 70s? The current brown they use seems to lean green whereas growing up I remember it being more true chocolate brown. Anyone know?

Thanks. So it isn't just me. The old brown was, well, brown, and the new one not sure what you'd call it, sludge?

 

Colorwerx can do you one better, with official colors:

If anything, the brown is supposed to be darker/more robust than the older shade. That team color codes site is very untrustworthy.

either keep this blue and gold from a couple seasons ago or swap out that blue for brown and call it a day.

Agreed except I'd like to see the S and the D both yellow on the cap to be consistent with the single color treatment they use on the jersey. 

 

It's funny, I'm a BROWN guy and hate the current blue since it doesn't say "San Diego" to me. But, seeing the blue again with the yellow seems very "San Diego" due to the Chargers history there.

It's also, mostly, unique in baseball. Brewers don't count, because of an alt. Same with Mariners. 

 

I'm a blue and gold person for the Padres, but would also be happy with brown and gold. 

 

To me, the gold is the defining Padres color. Anything with gold is good.

You missed the shade of brown they used from '85-'89, which was darker than the previous shade.

The current brown does have a very drab hue to it, and I hope it's not used for the new uniforms.

One of Fowler's big things has been what he calls "baby poop brown," which he says Tony Gwynn called the old brown, and specified in his interview that the brown used in the focus groups is darker.

Brewers don't count? They may have diluted their brand by constanly mixing and matching shades, but they've been blue and gold since 1970.  

 

The absolute worst thing the Padres could do here is try to co-opt blue and gold, thereby forcing yet ANOTHER color scheme into their cache, instead of simply owning brown and building around that.

Not sure if this has been shared elsewhere, but I saw this on Twitter and thought it would be of interest here. A Padres concept that makes use of a warm color gradient to mimic the stunning sunsets San Diego is known for. Thoughts?

The Motre Bame set added green, which breaks things a bit.

It was still only a tertiary color.  They didn't even have a green alt.

Yeah I saw that and thought it was pretty cool. Idk if I would want it though. Maybe something like it as just an alt if they go back to that brown/yellow/orange scheme.
