No not the rubber type, the sew on jobbies.
At Ride To The Wall majority of the guys there were from the Hardly brigade and the waistcoat covered in patches seemed to be obligatory.

At overlander meets it seems stickers on the bike and panniers are more the norm.



I’ve got patches from Nordkapp, Isle of Mann MadSunday and a few country flags and no idea where to sew them, I don’t want them on my jacket and I aint wearing a Hardly Vest so out of curiosity who wears a patch, what is it and where do you have it sewn on.

Buy yourself some cheap white T shirts and sew one on each T shirt, Just an idea :thumbup:

When I was in the scouts I used to have a blanket covered in patches. Mind you, my mum used to sew them on the knees of my jeans too.

BT has patches sewn on his summer bike gear (it's not waterproof anyway so the sewing does not harm. I have high viz strips sewn all over mine.

Sew them together and make a flag out of them.

Nice solid cotton quality paddock shirt. You can keep adding to it as you go. Wear it underneath so it's not in your face. Start with the badge for sowing and add from there.

I've suggested the same for the nationals/TLD. Just add a badge.
