I'm pretty excited for tomorrow and I'm not a Padres fan. This day is a long time coming for Padres fans and us lunatics on this forum and with the early leaks looking so good I think we're all quite optimistic that we won't be utterly disappointed tomorrow. 

 

Anyone know what time this is happening?

If this is true, it looks like Nike is wasting no time in helping ruin the league like they have ruined the NBA.


It’s not like this is an unusual trend for the Padres. Remember how they would almost never wear the full sand road uniforms?

 

Put it on the team, not Nike.

I’m not sure if this has been part of their social media design work prior to the redesign or not, but they’ve got chevrons everywhere in the background of the new brown stuff. Even those banners on the lampposts in the video have yellow chevrons on the bottom. Perhaps an indication of something further?

Correction, Orange and Brown looked like :censored:. In no small part due to the same design firm doing both Padres ‘85 unis and the contemporary Giants unis. It’s a large part of why they were so similar.

 

I never knew this, and damned if it doesn't explain just about everything!

Yep, it was a San Francisco firm Sidajakou, Berman and Gomez, who designed the ‘85 Padres uni and the Giants uni the year before. Hell the Pads apparently knew it was a blatant rip-off and wanted it to be so they’d sell more merch due to the easier tooling. Guess back then it was tough to get third parties to manufacture what amounted to one off merch due to the Padres eclectic brown/yellow/orange design.

The Padres website is brown and yellow as of now but even if they do the sand pants thing, I guess the shade would be the issue because I felt they got it right in 1969. I just liked the 2004 unis because it got rid of the boring navy based unis before that and thought the sand uniforms of 2004 weren't that bad. Again. I've always hoped this day would come going back to brown in some sort of way( Nike taking over not withstanding). Maybe they will get rid of the stupid tail but I'm sure they will screw it or other teams uniform up in some sort of way. As of now, I think just the Brewers and Diamondbacks(although yesterday's tweak is in the right direction) need fixing. No bad for a league of 30.

A few years ago I posted that the Padres sand road uniforms are the uniform set I never expected to miss, but really do. These were actually great, in many respects.

Just tone down the sand color a little bit so it’s more subtle rather than making them look like baseball playing Steve Irwins, and that’s an awesome uniform. 

 

That particular color scheme is where I think the Padres just missed making blue their primary color scheme for good. The addition of sand and powder blue was fantastic, but they got nervous and botched the execution. The sand was just a bit too overblown, and they never actually used the powder blue to any real extent on the uniforms (baffling to me considering Chargers fans already loved that color). Even with that being said, that original PetCo Park set was still IMO the best they’ve ever looked. Had they been more bold and tied in that light blue a bit better I think that set would’ve aged a lot better. But instead they were a snore fest on the field in that era, panicked a bit, and scaled back and looked about as boring as they played. 

 

Them going back back to brown is the right move, but they were really close to making blue work.

I liked the sand in concept, but it just didn't work for me in practice.  Maybe the navy/khaki combo was just boring.  If they did the exact same sand but with brown / white/ yellow trim, it might work a lot better this time around.

the sand will also be darker than before, if the info i've heard is correct.
