That's a cool jacket - it's out of stock most places, but I found it on ebay for $50 here:

How did you attach the patches to the jacket?


Thanks, Dark. Iron Pony's still selling them @ 29.99 on ebay. I might pick up a blue denim jacket, just because. As for the patches, I had them sewn on after being artificially aged. Decided that I might want to transfer the patches in the eventuality that I got a different jacket.

Nice. I dig the old school flavor. Reminds me, though, I still need to get me a DCC patch.

I can only imagine how much that cost... I've got a Mobil Pegasus patch coming in the next day or so. Surely not vintage, so not as credible, but still... Nothing a 12-hour soak in Folgers instant coffee and some sandpaper won't fix!

Well Scotch, for those of us who don't wear leather jackets or might be pro-vegan, this thread can serve to cover jackets of the textile, imitation, waxed cotton, denim, etc.. style of riding jackets...  ;D

Here's my Joe Rocket Atomic 2.0 jacket. Wanted it since I was a teen. They changed designs but luckily I tracked one down on clearance locally a few years ago. Wife surprised me one day with it. She said "if you're gonna ride, you're gonna ride safe." And yes, hell yes I'm standing in my bathroom taking pictures.



I have a boatload of patches. I'll stick some on the Joe Rocket jacket and save some for another jacket I plan to buy later this year.



I am considering buying this Vanson Leathers waxed cotton jacket. I saw it on Lowbrow Customs website but you can buy it direct from Vanson for $70 cheaper.  :o



I've accumulated more patches and there are more on the way. Drew out some specs last night to figure which patches will go on which jackets. I think I'll make one sort of like a vintage racing jacket with sponsors, etc. The goal is to make them look too busy.

That's quite an impressive collection o' patchies, Blake! I like the Rolling Stones and various beverage-type images. I somehow talked myself out of emblazoning Van Halen, Def Leppard and Dr. Pepper on my jacket...

Busy is good.

You can't go wrong with McQueen, man. But I do like the "business" off the second jacket.
