FanPost Friday: Talkin’ bout aesthetics

The ship has sailed on a full re-brand for 2023 Seattle Mariners, but let’s speculate on what lies ahead for Mariners uniforms

Hello and welcome back to FanPost Friday! We are not talking about the offseason today. No way, no how. I know the discourse has gone feral, but let’s keep that on Twitter and in the Moose Tracks comments, agreed? Today we’re talkin’ UNIFORM AESTHETICS, something EVERYONE can agree on, right? (Editor’s note: eric what are you doing)

A post from the Mariners Team Store caught my eye the other day:

This confirmed what we already kinda knew, that there will be no full re-brand of the Mariners uniforms for 2023. If they’re already mass-producing the current slate of Mariners hats with the All-Star Game logo on them, then that ship has certainly sailed. Also, a re-brand announcement would have happened by now, far in advance of the holiday gift buying season just like the recent one by the Minnesota Twins. Big ol’ massive scare quotes on “re-brand” here, though.

Way to really go out on a creative limb there, twinkies.

But, alas, Mariners fans, we DO allegedly have something uniform related to look forward to in 2023, beyond the All-Star Game uniforms. By the end of the 2023 season, Nike is rumored to release the remaining City Connect uniforms for teams that haven’t gotten theirs yet, so that means we’ll see the Mariners version at some point next year. This could be a preview of a future full-on Nike rebrand of the regular set, so I am very excited to see what they come up with for the sure-to-be wacky City Connect set.

Will it be full-on color clash?

Or tastefully smooth? (trying not to vomit while praising the Angels right now, ugh)

What do you want to see from the Mariners City Connect uniforms?

Have a great weekend, folks!
