I have this jacket for a couple years now and totally forgot the existence of this thread for some reason.

Image

Image

Yes, the Dismember and Pantera patches are shirt cutouts (been trying to get a nice patch for the upper back but i just cant find a good one at a reasonable price. if i dont find any nice patch in my next trip to Mexico City i'll just tell a friend to screen print me a Dawnbringer or Amorphis logo)

Still a work in progress and it’s my first jacket but so far I think it’s cool :evil:

The layout looks incredibly random to me, especially this Nocturnus patch. You need a big backpatch for the back.

Made a few changes since I last posted. The Demolition Hammer and Merciless patches on the front aren't sewn yet. Still trying to figure out where I want the Merciless one.
Image

And the biggest change will be happening on the back soon. Gonna change the backpatch when I find a more suitable one to my tastes. Still love Death and Spiritual Healing, just not as a backpatch anymore.

The front will look a bit less random once I add two patches under the Cryptic and Sodom ones. But I’m keeping the sideways Nocturnus, I want a back that looks random and explosive. Maybe with a medium sized patch on the top of it.

Still not sure which band I would choose for the backpatch. Maybe a classic black and white Voivod.

I'm really late to the party, but I recently decided to re-do my vest. It's a work in progress, I plan on doing more in the coming weeks.

Total noob here. What's the best way to go about getting the patches on? Ironing? Sewing? Using dental floss?

I sew mine on. Some are iron-able, but sewing guarantees they're long lasting. I use a machine though, so results may vary.

Great vest, Mammoth Rider! The front needs more patches though :)

I sewed all my patches by hand except the backpatch, it's fun to do.

Here's my third and through long-term crust jacket, about 6-7 or more years old and still good.

And an older jacket, still in good shape

The method I've used is:

1 Print the motive mirrored.
2 Use a pastel pencil (buy it in an artist store, they're cheap) to trace it on oven paper or whatever its called. You can use a soft regular pencil as well but since it's black it will make it hard to see on the jacket. Pastel pens are available in white, they are soft and they don't stick well, which is what you want.
3 Put the oven paper on the jacket with your tracing down and rub thoroughly over it (though make sure you keep it still!). Use something soft but firm; a rolled up bandshirt is the most metal choice. This will transfer your traced logo to the jacket.
4 Fill it in with leather paint (Also cheap from artists store. I got i tiny jar for about 8 dollars and it seems enough to cover almost the entire jacket with logos). Get a really tiny brush. To get an even white seems to take a least two layers with the paint i use.
5 Once it's dry you can wipe of the pastel with a wet paper towel or something. The paint is really tough so don't worry about that.

Total material cost for me was equivalent of about 10 dollars

Some additional tips:
Before you start drawing, make sure you will actually be able to get the pastel off by trying it on some part of the jacket were it won't show, and wipe it of. It will stick harder when you draw directly on the jacket than when you transfer it.

Tape the oven paper down over the print when you trace it, especially of its a detailed logo. It's slippery and annoying and always move without you noticing it, thus fucking up the logo. It's hard to tape because the purpose of it is that stuff should't stick to it.

If you want a symmetric and clean look, measure up and lightly draw (with pastel pen) some support lines where you want your logo. Then it's easier to get the logo straight and centered (Oven paper is slightly transparent)

Use something to rest your hand on while painting so you don't smudge the pastel. I use 3 small planks placed like an H, and move the middle one along as i paint.

I've been meaning to post this one on here for a while, but I just now put it on T-shirt slayer. It's my first leather jacket with patches:

Does anyone know how to properly turn a t-shirt into a back patch? Is it as simple as just cutting out the pattern and sewing it on, or is there a more involved way to do it?

That's basically what I did, I'd suppose the amount of involvement depends on how much you want to add on to it.

But yeah, if you want to just cut the portion of the shirt that you want to make into a back patch and then sew that on nice and tight, then you can go ahead and just do that.

I have read that you should fold over the ends and sew through both layers

I'm currently in the middle of sewing the patches onto my first jacket. I've got a big back-patch and two smaller ones aligned centrally on the back. I have four smaller patches leftover. Should I put them on the front of the jacket, or on the sides towards the back?

Metal Devastation is where I got a lot of mine. Also you can find quite a bit on ebay that are decent quality. Go for embroidered patches though, screen printed ones are shit.

Just got this giant Smiths patch in the mail the other day, not sure if I'll add anything else to this jacket.
