Elbow Patches

· A professorial vibe ·

October 28, 2017 4 Comments

Elbow patches bring to mind professors and moors and corduroy. I think I like all of those things. (I’ve never been to a moor.)

Why don’t more items of clothing have elbow patches? I love how utilitarian they are. I’m the sort of person that tends to wear out elbows and knees, so elbow patches just make sense.

Shirt, LRFL Lauren Jeans Co (thrifted). Skirt, Forever 21 (consignment). Boots, Vince Camuto (consignment). Hat, Free Press. Belt, Hadley Pollet (consignment). Bag, thrifted.

    I too love elbow patches and yours look great! I have been patching up worn out elbows on my precious wool sweaters with felt patches bought on ebay. They are sold in squares which you can cut into an oval shape and sew them on. Or you can even buy adhesive-backed felt patches.

      You are crafty! I’ve done iron-on but never sewn them on.

    I just purchased my first plaid shirt with elbow patches and I’m like…why don’t I have more of these? So much nicer when you spend 8 hours of your day with your elbows propped on a computer desk and staring ominously at your work email.

      So utilitarian, right?
