Some unique embroidery patch

Some people say that the spectacle patchworn on the eyes of pirates is also a kind of PatchedUp culture, because these patches are easy to be recognized by people, and it is also a culture of publicity. For example, during World War II, some unique embroidery patch of the US Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard was the most popular. This tradition continues to this day. Collectors only, these things are too valuable. So many retro lovers chase after some military uniforms with special patch patterns.

The retro trend of hippie sports and punk spirit

It wasn't until the 1960s that the American hippie movement transformed PatchedUp from mainstream culture to subculture. Some smiley faces, rainbows, flowers, peace signs, and slogan quotes. From jackets, t-shirts, to ironic military uniforms, to the classic symbolic jeans of that era (mainly flared pants), patches are everywhere. All this lasted until the 1970s until the 1980s ushered in the PUNK punk style. If the hippie movement means peace and love, then the spirit of punk is destruction, destruction, and complete reconstruction. This also reflects this from their works. I'm talking about music band patches, mashups and skull patches, and even homemade ordinary cloth patches. All of these can be perfectly matched with rivets, safety pins, and leather jackets. In the 1990s, this culture was seen everywhere in professional sportswear and school clothing used to distinguish teams and hierarchical factions. Since embroidery pioneer Joshua Heilmann invented the first-hand embroidery machine in France, patches have become more popular. Let embroidery patch no longer rely only on slow hands, but a relatively not so slow machine. Later, with the emergence of programmable machines, embroidery machines were able to achieve greater automation and mass production. Therefore, embroidery patch can be seen in some ordinary work shirts, T-shirts, sweater coats, and jeans. Today, high-end fashion brands have begun to use patch patches and once again push PatchedUp to the forefront of mainstream fashion. Many luxury clothing jackets, jeans, bags are hung with vibrant patches. This is the second creation of some extremely talented designers through this culture. This is also an original design, right? However, if you spend expensive clothes on the road, you will still See other people wearing the same clothes, using the same patches.
