San Diego Padres 2020 Rebrand Discussion

Yeah the brown top didn’t need white, but if that’s where we’re picking at then that’s not bad. I’m also not a fan of mixing trim with pinstripes, but while it’s not what I would have done, it really doesn’t look bad here.  
 

the road pinstripes are a perfect example of “what works works, and what doesn’t doesn’t”, as I’m a firm anti-road pinstriper, but this works.

1. The outline on the wordmark matches "the system", as the other jerseys have outlines on the wordmarks.

But the cap doesn’t with the yellow on brown. Either outline the SD on the cap or leave the outline off the brown jersey.

The Pirates’ non-outlined cap is superior to the outlined cap in all instances though, even if the outlined cap matches the alternate.

 

The Mets, White Sox, Indians, and Royals have single color hat logos but outlines on the alternate jersey. The Mets don’t need the outline on the hat to match, either.

Boston Bruins should also go back to brown and yellow. It’s a great color scheme.

 

But the Bruins have a strong, defined identity that's not brown, and besides they can just keep making new brown merch every 3 years when they're inevitably in a Winter Classic. The Padres make this work because they cycled through tons of inferior looks over the last several decades.

I would submit that this is a "sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't" thing. It works for the Padres, I think because the cap monogram looks quite different than the wordmark, so you don't get a sense of failed matchiness.

They won’t, but it’d be nice if they could. Hopefully the brown is actually brown and doesn’t look black next time.

Right, it's something messed up a lot. Consistency would for all, would help all. The SOX is especially egregious since it's the exact same logo just treated differently. Horrible.

Probably the idea. That was a big knock against the ‘85 at the time. They literally stole the Giants style from the same firm from the preceding year, added poop brown and pinstripes and called it a uniform. 
 

Thankfully the Padres and Giants both went in different directions within a few years into much better looks.

 

Also has anyone seen anything more on the Sunday Cap being official?

Just saw on MLB shop’s site that the alternate cap is now available there.

Wasn’t in any stores when I was in SD this past weekend unfortunately. When it DOES arrive, this Dodgers fan is purchasing one.

The alternate hat is nice, but then I realized the colors are essentially baseball's version of this

See those side by side really confirms for me that the yellow is vital. While not horrible, the tan/brown is just blah, drab, not San Diego at all.

The only places that have them are the Padres Store at Petco Park or online at MLB.com.  There’s some kind of exclusive thing going on.
