The San Diego Padres announced last night via Twitter that they will wear their 1984 uniforms for an entire weekend series against the Chicago Cubs next season.
The Tweet indicated that the 4-game series at home vs. Chicago would be in June, the series is actually May 22-25th:
A little vague on the details but from that Tweet it seems the team will wear both their home whites and road brown jerseys during the series. The 1984 season is the only one in which the Padres wore this style of jersey as a button-up. They had worn it as a pullover from 1980-83.
San Diego wore this style of throwback just this past season for a game on May 17th against the Washington Nationals, odds are they’ll just wear these exact same jerseys and caps come next May:

This may, however, have just been in reference to the news the team announced today.
