Classic ski patches

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

whatever happened to sticking these patches on our ski gear?  lets bring it back! or maybe i don't really want to put holes in my gore-tex:D-  picked up these blasts from the past on a recent visit to mom and dad.

 

let's see them!

You said it yourself. Back in the 70's, ski gear wasn't actually waterproof, so it didn't matter if you punched little holes in it to sew on a patch. Now, I'm not about to put any more holes in my jacket's membrane than I have to. As an instructor, I have to ski with a jacket that's embroidered on the back and on the chest. Let me tell you that when it rains, you can see exactly where the embroidery is when I take off my uniform jacket. 

 

Although putting them on a midlayer like a fleece or something... I'd be down for that.
