Leather patches are usually seen on the back of designer jeans, sewn on with thick thread for a polished, high-end look. They’re usually rectangular and placed up near the waistband, often hidden by an overlaid shirt or jacket.
When we think of custom patches, we definitely don’t think leather; but leather patches are a stylish way to enjoy traditional woven or embroidered patches.
Here are few ways to style these unique custom patches for almost every occasion, or on any type of clothing or accessory.
1.Leather on Leather
We love the look of a custom leather patch over a leather bag, leather jacket, or other leather accessories. Custom leather patches can be made in vivid colors, or in traditional tones, with as much detail as material patches.
Leather on leather is edgy, and an unexpected departure from traditional woven or embroidered patches on all your favorite leather clothing and accessories.
2.Leather on Denim
This combination is a tried and true classic. However, we recommend sporting custom leather patches in unexpected places on your denim, to give your patch a standout moment, instead of hiding it up near the waistline.
Trying sewing leather patches near or on pockets. Leather patches on the arm of a denim jacket also look great. Don’t hide your leather patches; let them stand out on your denim clothing.
3.Leather Patch Upgrades
Leather patches are often used to brand high-end clothing and accessories. With a custom leather patch, you can take generic, inexpensive clothing and turn it into one-of-a-kind pieces with a quick stitch.
Sew leather patches onto hats, jackets, handbags, jeans, and more. The statement you can make with the addition of a leather patch to just about any item of clothing will transform basic garments into stylish pieces.
4.Leather Patches to the Rescue
Another great style tip for a leather patch is also a great way to save torn or damaged clothing and accessories. You know that favorite pair of jeans that recently ripped? Why not cover the hole with a custom leather patch? Or how about that torn tweed blazer—patch that up with a leather patch!
There’s no limit to what you can create with the help of a well-placed leather patch. They’re durable, fun, and 100 percent customizable for a look that’s 100 percent yours.
