Our friends at Black Sheep Warrior have some good looking new swag to check out.
From Black Sheep Warrior:
Black Sheep Warrior has just announced their brand new Vintage Style T-shirt and matching, limited edition patch. According to Black Sheep Warrior, the shirt is made from a super comfortable 60/40 cotton poly blend and was printed in the United States. The Patch matches the graphics on the T-shirt and are limited to the first 100 customers. The shirt and patch can be obtained at Black Sheep Warrior’s online store located at www.mtgtactical.com
The extent of the utility you’ll get out of most hook backed patches is the ability to make someone laugh or serve as a marker or identification. The Superesse Straps Note Patch Kit can do both of those things and then some!
Like Superesse Straps’ other “Patch Kits”, the Note Patch Kit has a hidden compartment behind the patch itself that is accessed via a slit in the hook material. This is good for storing things discreetly or just for the convenience of carrying something like a small dry erase marker or charcoal pencil… which you can use to actually write on the surface of the patch. The surface of the patch is white with glow-in-the-dark memo lines and can be written on.
The kit comes with a number of items including the patch, a charcoal pencil, kneaded eraser, and ranger bands (which can be used to erase), and a lead pencil. It is also available with an optional Parapen (ink pen wrapped with paracord) and note sheets.
Kitfox Design Group, line art extraordinaire and creator of the Firearm Coloring Book (along with a bunch of other cool stuff), has launched a new website. The new site is the place to check out the Firearm Coloring Book, limited edition patches, and more.
How about a steaming hot cup of COVFEFE! Forward Controls Design has a new patch that you can wear while you read the President’s 3AM tweets.
The story of Roy Larner’s bravery surfaced in the media earlier this week. According to reports, he took on three knife wielding terrorists with nothing but his fists all while shouting his allegiance to Millwall FC – a football club in the second tier of English football. That kind of bravery will earn a man a pint or two… and a morale patch in his honor.
Wilde Custom Gear created a laser cut, fist shaped patch that any football hooligan would be proud to wear. You can check it out on their website: WildeCustomGear.com
I’m done buying patches this year… FALSE!
Gear Whores Anonymous’ new FALSE Patch features the mug of everyone’s favorite beet farmer. The patches are available for pre-order now with a shipping date of sometime this month.
Today is Pi Day (3/14) and Maxpedition has a patch for that.
Battle Patches is offering two new patch designs, designed by Tacsoup, that poke a little fun at Hillary Clinton and her pesky email problems. What a minute. Who do they think they are kidding? This must be the work of the Russians too!
Mil-Spec Monkey recently uploaded the following image as their Facebook Cover Image.
The image started me thinking about how huge morale patches have become, how many patch-centered lifestyle brands have popped up in recent years, and how influential Mil-Spec Monkey really has been in making all that happen. They took the morale patch from a niche item known only to those in the know, to a lifestyle item that retailers stock by the thousands. The Monkey is probably the main reason so many gear items have loop material fields on them now. Who would have thought that you could build an entire brand/empire around patches?
Check out Mil-Spec Monkey and buy a patch or two to pay homage to the OG of the Modern Day Morale Movement.
