I used to have an Students for a Democratic Society pin when I was in UG. I think it's probably somewhere in my room back at home. I should find it and wear it or get a backpack to put it on or something.

I feel like I should take my Comune jacket I don't wear anymore, find those patches and get a bunch of metal patches and just make a battlejacket.

Spoiler:
"Even though neuroscience has yet to prove the effectiveness of so called subliminal advertising techniques, backward persuasive messages, and self-help subliminal tapes, these and other popular phenomena have played a significant role in the common beliefs regarding subliminal perception since the mid 1950s. [1]
Despite the much publicized court cases for suicides allegedly linked to satanic messages in rock songs, or the relatively high sales of healing tapes with sub audible content, those prominent examples of subliminal suggestion are in fact little less than hoaxes and commercial gimmicks. [2]"

pretty please add the retailers when you have charming patches/pins because I feel like they all have weakass brand identities that I can never remember.

I believe @maj had a hookup on an embroidererer.

Though frankly I'd prefer a pin because I don't know what I can attach patches to given my ancient age. I guess my tennis/gym gear.

Can someone who understands the physical world explain how to sew these on. What manner of needle do I need? The big one? The small one?

Schia and I are both into this embroidered pin company called Macon & Lesquoy. They are sometimes a little twee, but their work is very charming and colorful.

Also this is my favorite patch:

And here's my first embroidery project, a patch modeled after Supreme's rugs and pins from a few years back. Not sure where to sew it onto though.

@deadkitty I've had this thrifted jacket for years. I've slowly made little modifications. The first was to steal some of my dad's soviet pins and add 'them to the front.

Image

Later on I added "kakistocracy" to the back.

Image

I think the patch would go nicely on the back left near the bottom.

Eh? Eh?

For something a little different, some quotes from the Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice where pins worn on clothing have social meanings:

“I’m told,” I said, meaning to sound idly curious, and playing up my Gerentate accent just the smallest bit, “that the jewelry you Radchaai wear has some sort of significance.”

Seivarden cast me a puzzled look.

The adjunct only smiled. “Some of it.” Her Orsian accent, now I had identified it, was clear, obvious. “This one for instance.” She slid one gloved finger under a gold-colored dangle pinned near her left shoulder. “It’s a memorial.”


Near the memorial, on her collar, sat a small flower pin, each petal enameled with the symbol of an Emanation. A date engraved in the flower’s center.


“They make them for funerals,” the adjunct was saying, still talking about memorial pins. “Family and close friends wear them.” And you could tell by the style and expense of the piece just where in Radchaai society the dead person stood, and by implication where the wearer stood. But the adjunct—her name, I knew, was Daos Ceit—didn’t mention that.


I wondered then what Seivarden would make—had made—of changes in fashion since Garsedd, the way such signals had changed—or not. People still wore inherited tokens and memorials, testimony to the social connections and values of their ancestors generations back. And mostly that was the same, except “generations back” was Garsedd. Some tokens that had been insignificant then were prized now, and some that had been priceless were now meaningless. And the color and gemstone significances in vogue for the last hundred or so years wouldn’t read at all, for Seivarden.

Inspector Adjunct Ceit had three close friends, all three of whom had incomes and positions similar to hers, to judge from the gifts they’d exchanged with her. Two lovers intimate enough to exchange tokens with but not sufficiently so to be considered very serious. No strands of jewels, no bracelets—though of course if she did any work actually inspecting cargo or ship systems such things might have been in her way—and no rings over her gloves.

@UnwashedMolasses extensive amounts of time spent talking to people about pins and patches, scouring the instagrams of various Cool Kids to find brands, trawling Etsy, obsessive fashion-blog and fashion-forum reading, scrolling through Pinterest for years
