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

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
