Ten Minutes: Patches

Patches were designed to repair clothes but now they’re used to define kooks. The combination of a 101st Airborne emblem and “Keep on Truckin’” iron-on is eccentric and ambiguous. Vintage beer brands? Fun! Kind of. It’s part fun and part bumper sticker. It used to be a huge punk thing, but it must have been hard to act tough while admitting you could sew in the ‘70s. Half assing the job is highly recommended. It’s the perfect middle ground.
