If you follow us on Twitter, a couple days ago we retweeted photos posted by Padres All-Star closing pitcher, Heath Bell, showing off his pair of PRDTetc™ x Knockaround — Bring Back The Brown Fort Knocks. Next day, a photo surfaced on Sign On San Diego of Heath Bell and Grammy Award-winning San Diego rock band, Switchfoot — and he’s still proudly rocking his BBTB Fort Knocks. Heath, you the man!
This past weekend we released the Bring Back The Brown Fort Knocks at 5&A Dime with our friends over at Knockaround. Sun was out, music was bumpin’, and drinks were flowin’. Thank you to all the friends, fam, and fans that rolled through to show support; and thanks to 5D for letting us throw another event! We’ve almost blown through all 400 numbered editions this first week, if you’re still looking to cop a pair you can scoop them up … Read More
Today at 3pm PST we will be making the Bring Back The Brown Fort Knocks available for purchase in the PRDTetc™ online store. So far the response has been great! Thursday Knockaround released 250 of the 400 on their website, and sold out in a little under 2 days. Saturday we had a great release event at 5&A Dime (we will be posting photos from the event a little later). Thanks to all that came by! We can’t promise that … Read More
We’re stoked to finally reveal the collaborative set we’ll be releasing with our San Diego friends over at Knockaround.

All is packaged in a hand-screenprinted box, retailing for $35 per set. Don’t miss … Read More
Despite the tragic (“or just horseshit”) losing streak that took the Pads into the All-Star Break (together with any “very hopeful” hopes of post-season play), we’re still putting it down for the Bring Back The Brown campaign, along with our city, and we’re really excited about this one. Saturday, July 30th at 5&A Dime from 1:30pm-4:30pm. Music, drinks, and a Knockaround x PRDTetc™ product release. More details to follow…
Bring Back The Brown, SD!
This past Friday we more than doubled our group size for the 2nd Bring Back The Brown “Crowd in Brown.” We were over 110 brown lovers strong, and this time we sprinkled the Bring Back The Brown posters throughout the stands. Despite this, the Jumbo Tron crew still didn’t show us any love, but we figure they can only ignore our strong support for the team and city for so long. We won the game with a walk-off walk in … Read More
