The new uniforms won’t be revealed until 11/9, but the Padres are already teasing their new SD logo with the darker brown color. Top SD is the new one, lower one is the old current one. Very subtle change to the SD.

Too much of the spenises must have rubbed off on Fowler and co.

For every step forward, they seem to take three steps back.

Let's call the old one "chocolate," and the new one "96% cacao super dark chocolate" :)

lol......whatever the health benefits of that darker chocolate are apparently the padre brass missed out on. If it prevents dementia it didn't work in this case.

We have looked like the Pirates before. While I would prefer us having our own uniforms, it beats wearing Dodgers uniforms or the old pinstripe Giants uniforms. Eff the Giants and Dodgers with a Jack Clark baseball bat.

Well they let Tinglehoff wear the new hat but not the new jersey, the difference in hue is evident. Looks like the brown is very chocolate-like, similar to the 1985 color.

Ok, we know what the new hats look like:

Here’s the word mark that will allegedly be on their jersey:

Here’s an article about the uniforms big reveal:


There will be two road uniforms, it specifically calls out the brown tops with tan pants, so the assumption is there will be a tan road uniform. The article states there were many back-and-forth’s with the uniform suppliers so let’s hope they got the sand color right.

I managed to finagle a pass to the unveiling tonight. If I get a good enough vantage point I’ll post pix, but I’m sure it’ll be all over social media in HD.

Well here are some of the images. Overall, I like them. Just one cap (no Taco Bell cap unfortunately). Not too keen on the tan roads but I guess I need to see them in action. I like they put the swinging friar on each uniform

Whew, I actually dig them. The brown unis (left) are very similar to the current ones. The white home unis (center) is very clean. The Friar on the arm is a nice touch.

Military uniform will be unveiled tomorrow. That cap is on the right. The military cap is less red in hue than the primary cap.

The brown Uni is the primary road Uni BTW. The sand colored pinstripe Tatis is sporting is an alternate road uniform.

Yeah I wish that was the home uni but I guess white is traditionally the home colors?

Yeah it’s usually white at home. They have worn colored alt tops at home but I doubt they use the brown one since it says “SAN DIEGO”.

The PADRES wordmark on the front look freakishly huge, but it’s starting to grow on me. The socks Urias is wearing look like the military uniform set.

Good stuff here about the new unis from Paul Lukas, creator and chief writer for the column called “Uni Watch”, which I am an avid fan of.

Interesting. So initially the alternate road jersey (sand pinstripe) was supposed to be the primary road jersey (solid brown).

From what I gathered, it was in the final running to be the road jersey (they were not going to have alternates save for the camps) but they decided they liked the brown top better for the road uniform, and MLB forced them to provide a lighter road jersey in case the home team opted to go with a solid top (they don’t like having two teams play with solid tops - remember when the Padres and Mariners did that?), so they pulled this design out of their pocket.

The pinstriped road is looking to be their most popular set, that jersey is already sold out.

So according to that article, he was saying that he wished the brown jerseys would be the home jerseys. That would be following the usual pattern. I wish they were too but oh well. I like all of them.

Yeah, a lot of people are hoping they’ll wear the brown jersey at home but they don’t have a set of pants to wear with it and it does say “San Diego” and they’d obviously want “Padres” at home. Maybe next year. The owners specifically wanted to have a minimal amount of uniforms. (Although they released the camo jerseys today so that gives them five uniforms and two caps).
