ABOUT #BBTB

"Bring Back The Brown" is a campaign designed to persuade the San Diego Padres organization to reintroduce brown as an official team color; not only because it's unique but because it makes sense. BBTB was created with the grand objective of fostering a stronger loyalty to San Diego and its sports culture.

We are not adovcates for the return of any particular retro uniform, or retro uniforms at all. We're advocates for the return of brown to be incorporated into a modern, but classic San Diego Padres identity.

The campaign was founded by San Diego based brand / creative consultancy, Product Etcetera™ in 2010.

Sign the petition above and leave a comment on what brown means to you. Take pride & ownership in our city, our history, our identity, & our San Diego Padres.

Follow us @backthebrownSD. We don't disappoint.
