Trending – Patched and Embroidered for Men

Right now the gods of the fashion industry are hanging out in Europe together, deciding your fate. Or at least, the fate of your closet.

Will they sanction plaid or houndstooth as the bold pattern of choice this fall? Should your pants be baggy and cropped or slim and flared? And what colors are you supposed to buy your sweaters in? Those answers are being worked out as we speak.

One thing we know for sure has made the cut: Patches and embroidery. They were all over suits, coats, and pants on the runway, but the most real-life place we spotted them was on denim jackets.

From metalheads to John Lennon, cool guys have been rocking patched-up denim jackets for years, which means you can find them in vintage stores or buy the patches online pretty easily. You can also wait until these exact jackets from Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and DSquared2 (respectively) hit the shelves. But that will take a few months and at least a thousand dollars. We’ll leave it up to you.

Just know that we think your next denim purchase—especially if you’re planning to see Guns N’ Roses on tour this summer—would look pretty bitchin’ with a rose or a tiger head patch on it.

Stay tuned, Denimology is always posting about the newest and hottest denim trends form all over the world!
