This uniform is simply a classic. Like garlic fries at AT&T Park, or Madison Bumgarner hitting a home run; Giants fans have come to expect these uniforms every time they take in some baseball by the bay.

The uniform is revered by fans as a tradition, often thought of as the iconic Giants look. What makes this all the more impressive is that it has only been around as long as AT&T Park, 15 years. What makes it a timeless look is the retro color. Rather than use the default white color for their home uniforms like just about every other MLB team, the Giants went with an off-white, often called cream.

  • This color whisks away fans to baseball past, where Christy Mathewson ruled and the team wore thick wool jerseys. It all ties in nicely with the vintage design of the stadium, which is meant to look like a ball park from the 50’s and 60’s, with brick walls and dark green metal pieces.

    It’s got just enough color to not be boring, utilizing the team’s official colors of black and orange on both the front wordmark and sleeve bottoms. The decision to go nameless on the back is another tribute to the past, where teams didn’t put the last name of the players on the backs of jerseys, just simply their numbers. Going away from the crowd and choosing a unique, vintage look was a bold decision that worked well for the city by the bay.
