Padres Uniforms: #3 Alternate Tan Pinstripes

Pinstripes till I die. As a lifelong Cubs fan, I can’t help it.

San Diego’s alternate tan uniforms with pinstripes and ‘San Diego’ emblazoned across the chest are a whole mood. Like I said, yes, I’m ranking these, but there are only winners on this list.

It’s nice to have a different option for home games besides your home whites. These feel drastically different than the bright whites the Friars rock most of the time at Petco and the piping is a subtle, but absolutely on-the-money move in a nod to the past.

Pulling off a full suite of uniforms in brown and gold is no easy feat. But the Padres have done it perfectly, and their tan alternate uniforms are no exception. They take colors from a bygone era and somehow make them feel modern and swaggy. The type face for the ‘San Diego’ is edgy and clean and the pinstriped pants are what dreams are made of.

I don’t have anything bad to say about this look. Maybe there’s just a little too much tan when you’re going head-to-toe in one look – but that comes down to personal preference in the end.
