I’ve written several posts here at ESD about patches for jeans, but I’ve never had my own until now! I was so excited to partner with Wrangler on their new retro patches. Wrangler is a heritage brand that has a special place in my heart. I have fond memories or wearing Wranglers in grade school: specifically (and I also told this story over at my personal blog where you can see more photos if you’re so inclined) a day in first grade when my neighborhood friend Brent Walker paid me a visit wearing Wrangler jeans. I was wearing Wranglers that day, too! We played on my swing set—it had monkey bars. I recall little else of the encounter other than the excitement that we were both wearing Wranglers.
I think my favorites in this new collection are the cactus one above and the rose one that I attached to the lapel of this Wrangler jean jacket. I placed one patch on the outside of the lapel and one on the inside as well, so a patch would be visible whether the collar was popped or down.
I also love the lips patch, which you can see below. Stay tuned for more patches and more photos, as well as some new pins that the brand has coming up soon!
