Looking for a Jacket for Patches

Recommended Posts

Hello Troopers,

 

I was looking at a Jacket that I could put my 501st, Garrison, and FISD patches on. What do you guys use? I was thinking of getting the “Dickies Eisenhower”, but once I saw it in person, I was thinking I want to look around more. Feel free to share your thoughts, and maybe post a picture if you can.

I really like my Dickies Eisenhower jacket.  Quite popular around SoCal, since it doesn't get cold very much of the year.

I was thinking that one would be nice since it is a little lighter than a regular jacket. I live in Northern California so, like your region, it doesn’t get too cold (except last night LOL).

I did a hooded zip up sweatshirt. Just a basic brand with no labels. Sewed a large 501st patch on the back, my garrison on the left chest and my TK ID on the other. I’m a basic guy so I didn’t need much.

So, I use my Dickies short sleeve for my “uniform”:

For colder conditions, I have a fleece-lined hoodie with a giant cog in the center of the back, a 3.5” 501st patch on the left chest, and my garrison patch on my right shoulder:

A lot of guys here use a denim vest (no sleeves) but I prefer to use a bomber jacket, yes it does actually get cold down under ;)

For those cooler troops I let my FISD racing shirt do the talking

I’m extremely jealous of all those patches guys. Thanks for the pics.

I have several jackets, including a varsity jacket, hoodies, and track jackets, but the two I use the most are the Dickies and an old jean jacket. I also use a Dickies shirt for summer.

Q, where did you get the Anovos patch?

Direct from Anovos when I purchased my FOTK

Would you wear that to go grocery shopping? You better! I’m looking at my pics and then the posts after mine- sheesh I’m quite the minimalist, huh? Need some more patches on my shirt!

I ended up ordering an Unlined Eisenhower from Dickies. Thanks to all for the awesome pictures, and ideas for a jacket. Im looking forward to getting my first patch on it.

A friend of mine graciously sewed some patches on my jacket yesterday.
