Really BIG patches - Jacket size and larger

Recommended Posts

I have a few really big patches and when I say big I mean if these are meant for Jacket backs, the wearer would need to be lineman size...

I think the Topeka is a "standard size jacket patch at 9 and 3/4 inches

Thanks for starting this topic, it was on my to post list too. Those TOPEKA and Souda patches are outstanding.

Long before the Maersk Alabama seizure this Oliver Perry Class guided missile frigate was a cold warrior commissioned in 1984 as part of the "600 ship navy"

serving in the Atlantic, Med & all of the Gulf crises and wars. She was decommissioned just last month in September 2014.

But this one's my favorite for several reasons, not just the 10 1/2" size

 

U.S. NAVAL ELECTRICAL CLASS 17

 

Handmade irregular shape with 1940's or earlier materials. It's mostly felt on silk with the letters individually applied.

The '17' is a cut out inset to show the backing behind. This all gives it a 3D appearance
