Fucking hilarious that person below bitching about the placement of patches and saying that those people who suck at placing the patches are fashion punks. Er, excuse me, how does that make sense? And what determines a good placement of a patch as opposed to a bad one?
Yup. I do love when that stuff happens, though. I mean, it’s AWESOME how little sense that does make. They’re the one policing patches placement, yet the others are the ones who are fashion punks. It’s SUPERB. Haha. Cheers.
Yo. Everytime I sew my backpatch onto my jacket the string breaks after a few days. What the fuck am I supposed to do I don't understand anything
Use a sturdier line. Maybe even dental floss. You may also be sewing too tight or to loose. I hope I get to make a video tutorial about that soon enough. In the mean time, try to use a better line and be careful not to sew too tight. Cheers -JesseJane.
Hi so I'm gna make a punk vest & shorts & I got a lot of ideas from your blog but I'm no expert so I was wondering if you knew where I could get cool pins and studs on put on them. Both pieces are going to be dragon inspired. (If that makes sense.) Thank you so much in advance!
Well, this is the only online place that comes to mind: http://www.studsandspikes.com
It's sad how bad people's jackets suck. PBR, Misfits, Anarchy, Rancid, Addicts. Cool. And so shitty placed it makes me angry. Am I the only one who gets so angry about fashion punks that don't listen to anything but the "punk" on tony hawk or the radio or guitar hero? Boils my blood
Thank you, kind sir. You made me laugh so hard it hurts.
I mean, the guy thinks the motifs of the patches are cool, of nice bands. BUT HE HATES THEM ‘CAUSE OF THEIR PLACEMENTS.
Therefore, the OTHERS are fashion punks and so you go and all of it is just fucking brilliant. Unless it’s actually serious, in which case I’m totally puzzled and confused and don’t even know where to start.
Maybe make a Q&A link and tag your asks so people can look up the question on the page. when they ask something you've already answered just redirect them there, or possibly write something on your main page to tell them to go there before asking you something.
That`s actually a fantastic idea. I`ll see if I manage to actually make it happen. Thank you ;3
Ive got a Straight To Hell Defector jacket that ive studded up and done some work on that im trying to sell cause it doesent fit me anymore, if i sent some pictures do you think you could post it up with my contact info? im just trying to sell it for money to buy a new jacket, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
What's the best paint to use for a leather jacket? I just inherited a friend's jacket (he's still with us, the jacket just hasn't fit him in years), and an ex of his had once painted the back in artist's oils, but it's almost all flaked away, now. What's the best stuff to use?
Look, I don’t wanna be rude, but I’m getting tired of answering the same questions over and over again. If some - anyone - has any idea of how to make a tips page or something, please let me know, ´cause it would be better for everyone i guess.
Then, again, there’s leather paint, which is, basically, an acrylic paint. But any acrylic paint will do. Lots of really thin coats are way better than one thick coat. It will eventually start to flake anyway, though it may last much longer. Not sure how much longer. I heard keeping the leather moisturized (is that the right term?) also helps prevent the flaking.
This is about the ask on how to properly make stencils for patches. Just buy em and support the fuckin band, how else are they gonna make money?
… ‘cause every band has patches and there aren’t any patches made by third parties that don’t pay the rights for using the band’s logo/image/whatevs. Also, you could buy their music, go to their concerts, buy t-shirts, etcetera.
But point taken anyways. If possible, always support the bands you like, guys.
I think it's super cool that you acknowledge that the jacket in the 2NE1 clip is awesome instead of being like "wow ew no posers stop" or something like that. On an unrelated matter, do you know a good place, preferably online, to get activism-related patches??
Thank you, it’s great to know other people share the feeling ;] About the patches, I’m afraid I can’t help. I only bought a few patches in a local store a long time ago and started making my own since then.
at the anon who wanted help with stencils: most stencils are made with acetate, which is plastic instead of paper, i think. the thicker the acetate, the sturdier your stencil will be, but it can get harder to paint. oh, and paint by dabbing the brush on your fabric, or the paint can get under your stencil!
This is a work in progress, nothing is sewn on yet I’m just planning stuff out. I still have a few more patches and badges to buy. Also waiting on a bunch of studs to come in the mail and I need to order some spikes for the shoulders and collar.
I’m going for more of a modern-day pop/punk punk/rock style with a feminine touch. I know it’s not much like the rest of the vests on this blog but I often drop by here for inspiration.
