PostSubject: Metal vests   Thu Jun 28, 2012 6:51 pm

Anyone have one? I think I'm about ready to start my first and was wondering if anyone had any really cool ones to inspire me, or any tips on how to go about doing it. Links to sites that sell good patches are appreciated also (I'm thinking my first one is going to be sort of classic metal/death metal themed, if that helps).

I don't have a recent picture of my jacket and since I don't own a camera I can't take one. I do have a pic of my vest which is more on the Punk side than Metal but here you are:

I don't know if you are familiar with this site already, but Abyss Records has a wide variety of good patches. You can always look around Egay as well, there will be some guy who sells some quality patches at a decent price. I got most of my patches at random distro booths from various shows, so I'm fortunate on that end when some festival lurks around. Smile

I recently finished up most of my front side. Just need to put in like two more on the top part. I handsewn them all myself, which took an unbelievable amount of time for me to complete. So I end up doing two a night until I was done. The other two will have to be done by the professional sewing guy I went to a few weeks ago, because I had the hardest time completing that IMPIETY patch.




The AUTOPSY back patch was handsewn by my friend's ex (mind you, my friend gave me the vest) a few years ago. I knew there was no way I could try to do that myself, with that BATHORY goat back patch. So I went to the same sewing guy that I previously mentioned, and he decided to sew it for 6 dollars. Which was a good deal compared to some places that will charge you 10-15 dollars to do that alone. I haven't done the AMORPHIS & DECEASED patches yet.


I recommend trying to compare prices at sewing/tailor shops nearby, and explain your wants. Hopefully, they can be gracious to you and cut you a deal. Smile

I've got a vest but I need to pick up some stuff for it. I'm looking at getting a Candlemass Epicus Doomicus Metallicus back patch.
