Why the Twins feel the need to force gold into their identity I have no clue. Looking at fans responses on twitter it looks like I'm not alone in wanting to ditch the gold while bringing back the powder blue.

 

I think the worst part of this new jersey is that it is replacing the cream throwbacks which was by far the best jersey we had in the rotation IMO.

I like it. The gold is a nice way to separate them from all the other navy/red teams. I just wish they would using matching shades of gold on the embroidered parts and tackle twill.

Minnesota Twins Add New Navy Blue and Gold Uniform

January 23, 2019 - 19:16 PM

Today the Minnesota Twins unveiled one new uniform and eliminated another. Navy blue with red and “Kasota gold” trim, the new uniform, which is officially designated as a home alternate, incorporates the Twins retro jersey wordmark across the chest, piping […]

I'll miss the cream throwbacks, as they were some of the best uniforms in the game, but I'm also not going to lie and say that I hate these. That kind of spicy mustard gold looks quite good with those shades of red and blue I think.

So people ACTUALLY like that mustardy gold color? Are they trying not to be just another RWB team? It just darkens their look so much.

I'm not hyperbolizing when I say I think these are the worst uniforms the Twins have ever had. (Previous #1 is their current whites). Especially at the cost of probably their best uniform.

The TC appears to be metallic gold. Do they use metallic gold anywhere else?

Don't think so.  Even the outline on their cap logo is that mustard gold, when they could easily use metallic.

This feels like something you do after you win a championship or something, not for the sake of "lolwhynotsomegold"

They've really wandered off the path with this one.

It’s an exercise in how not to design a script.

 

I don’t get why it had to look like such disjointed garbage. The preceding Senators script was fine:

That “Minnesota” script offers the perfect letter set to update that garbage script.  Shameless self-plug:

It’s not to everybody’s taste, but it’s less of a painfully awkward mess than the “classic” version. 

 

Modernizing the 1960s uniforms should have been the Target Field look, not an indecisive mess stuck between the Metropolitan Stadium and Metrodome looks.

^ Much better, @SFGiants58.

 

I was just thinking about how, while I have some execution quips, I don't mind them using gold at all -- my biggest complaint with the Twins is the scripts. They have two "Twins" scripts and a "Minnesota" script and none of them fit together in the same design system, to my eye.
