A look at the updated uniforms and logos:

Starting this upcoming season, the team will wear updated home whites and road grays featuring classic block lettering and piping, along with a new blue alternate uniform that will show the Padres' "SD" on the chest.

The team unveiled three new logos on Wednesday. The "SD" logo has been updated to a circular mark featuring the text "San Diego Padres Baseball Club." That will be used as the team's primary mark.

The team's new secondary logo features the Padres script under skyline imagery of PETCO Park. The mark also includes the classic "SD" along with "Est. 1969" and will be featured in a patch on the sleeve of the club's blue and gray jerseys.

The team has also modified the Swinging Friar logo by using the original classic Swinging Friar from the early days of Padres history, with updated colors to match the blue and white worn by the club. That logo will be featured in a patch on the sleeve of the Padres' white jerseys.

In addition, the Padres' military jerseys will still feature the digital camouflage pattern that debuted in 2011, one that was modeled after the U.S. Marines, but will have updated numbers and lettering on the back to remain consistent with the Padres' other uniforms.

Mostly small changes but good ones, I particularly like the alternate blue uni's.

Those blue unis are smooth.

Meh. Call me when they come up with something as classy as The Marlins' new unis.

Was wishing they'd get back to their classic uni, the only thing in the world that could make Dave Winfield look nonthreatening.

The 80's Astros disagree with you.

No doubt. I don't usually care that much about uniforms, but the Astros 80's unis were awful. The White Sox beer league softball uni's complete with shorts rank right up there with the worst also.

They do, but that was only a one game thing. The Astros wore those hideous things for years!

These are boring, IMO. It's like they took the current unis and looked for a way to make them uninteresting.

I loved those Astros uniforms. They were appropriate for the time. :cool:

White Sox uni's in late 70's were all time worse. Especially when shorts were added to the mix.

You are right about that. They were the worst followed by those Atros uni's of the 70's. Another bad one was those red uniforms the Indians had. Boog Powell played for them then and he looked like a red hot sausage in that uni. I sorta liked those Padre uniforms from the 70's. I guess I just like the mustard look. :)

I've really liked the Padres' uniforms the last few years. Have they had a beige one recently or was that a few years back? I thought that was sharp -- sad not to see it in this group.

Does anyone have a picture of this new/classic sleeve friar they reference?

Here you go. Harkens to the past but doesn't look quite right when it's not done in brown.

Oh I remember that friar! Ok. I like him. The encircling logo is a little busy though. I think he should be a stand-alone sleeve patch like Mr. Redlegs.
