Placing the Right Motorcycle Leather Vest Patches on the Motorcycles & Jacketsby Ricardo Rios Motorcycle Apparel Albuquerque
Motorcycle riders enjoy a lot while gathering at any special events near the famous places of the city or the state or even on the extended road trip. Most of these events range from social gatherings to huge fundraisers. These Motorcycle Leather Vest Patches are purchased as keepsakes to commemorate these riding events.
These leather vest patches stick to their favorite apparel as a keepsake to display out where they have been or about the event's sponsor. The attachment of these patches to the apparel needs special attention.
Ways of attaching the patches on these leather jackets
Super glues can also be used to attach these patches to motorcycle jackets. Attachment of these patches with the superglues is done with utmost care as it requires positioning these patches in a key position. This line of glue is placed along the backside edges of the patch and holds it in place.
After that, the patching is checked by trying to peel it off. If there is any type of loose packaging, then it is further re-glued. If it is necessary for a further touch-up, then it’s being done. This patching on the leather jackets lasts only for a couple of weeks.
The other method is sewing the patches on the backside of the jackets or the leather biker vest. The best way of having the Sewing Leather Jacket is to take the leather jacket to the shoe repair shops or to the seamstress who works on the regular basics with the leather and have them do it for you. If you wish, you can also have your sewing leather jacket with a few certain efforts.
Few tips which you might consider in having the sewing leather jacket-
- If that patch values you a lot, you need to sew it in the perfect visible place. When you sew it on your own, you need to put tiny permanent holes in the leather biker vest or jacket.
- Secondly, choose the position where you want to place the patch. You need to follow this suggestion. Lay the garment/jacket as much as possible and attach the patches on the jackets using the adhesive spray. For that, you need to put the garment on you and ask someone to click a picture.
After thorough looking at these pictures, you make a decision where you want to place those patches on the jacket. At a later time, you want to remove and replace the patches; you can use the Goo Gone to remove all the glue marks.
- Then lay the jackets as flat as possible, considering there are no creases under the patches. Make sure that the adhesive sprays should keep the patch in the place where you have already sewed.
- Use 100% polyester or 100% nylon thread for sewing the patches on the jackets. The benefit of this type of thread is they will not react with the tanned leather, and the cotton thread tends to rot. It’s better to call upon the local fabric store for the same kind of needle that suits this project.
