    Elbow Patches On Blazers - Yay or Nay?

    What do you guys think of elbow patches on blazers? Does it look good or does it look bad? Stylish or old-fashioned?

    Tell me what you think.

    They originated on sports coats along with the shoulder patch to prevent wear but due to the new heritage trends, they have been brought back in. I personally like them but don't don't have them on either of my tweed blazers due to them being so common now.

    Nay.

    I like them on heavier jackets. On knitwear or lighter blazers whose sleeves I'd push up (sacrilege, I know) in Spring/Summer they spoil it for me because they look crap rolled up.

    It's a big thumbs up from me.

    They look great, as Sam says, on heavier, more autumnal fabrics: tweeds, heavy wools, corduroy all work well. And with the heritage trend, big news this AW they are bang on the money right now.

    A definite yay from me too, I think they look great on tweed blazers and I also like them on knitwear too.
