San Diego Padres 2020 Rebrand Discussion

Recommended Posts

Hopefully the Padres keep this look for more than like 3 years. It seems they change their uniforms every offseason.

 

The Padres actually have some decent players now. They need a recognizable brand for this portion of their history, especially if they start playing well. That's not even mentioning how bland the blue-and-white was.

I’m at the event. Bought the two hats. The home hat, which we all saw, and either a road or military Sunday hat ( conflicting reports from the retail folks) that’s brown with a sand color sand outline, similar to the SD design of the olive colored caps. That cap is a slightly less red color of brown so I’m guessing military cap.  We’ll find out in les than 30 minutes.

Lots of scripted excitement and discussion with the new manager Tingler. Nothing revealed yet other than some "SD" and Friar merch

Man, that Nike logo really sucks.

 

Not sure about the road pinstripes on sand. Sand is already a unique enough away look that pinstripes are a bit overkill. Don’t like how there’s a white outline on the brown jersey, yellow on brown is perfectly legible as demonstrated on the hat, what do you need white for?

Suddenly the Padres are one of the best looking teams in baseball. All three uniforms are near perfection. Classic. Simple. Unique.

According to the team Twitter account, brown over sand is the road uniform, with the sand pinstripes being designated the alternate:

I wasn’t crazy about the pinstripes but having them for both the home and road sets is a move I actually REALLY like. These are terrific. The Padres absolutely nailed it. 

 

 

I give this organization basically endless :censored: for their continued ineptitude. But in this case, I have to give credit where credit is due. They’re one of the best looking teams in baseball now.
