Sons of Anarchy is probably the most relevant show on television for bikers today. Women and men can’t help but to fall in love with the town of Charming and all of its inhabitants, particularly the Teller family. Jax has won the hearts of many female bikers, and Gemma the hearts of many male bikers. Now, with some biker lifestyle patches, we can all be part of the Sons of Anarchy crowd.
Sons of Anarchy biker lifestyle patches can be purchased and easily added to your jacket. The Sons of Anarchy Wikia website describes each patch and what it means so that you can choose which ones would fit you best if you were really part of the show. Once you have your patches bought, you can work on applying them to your jacket or vest.
Attaching biker lifestyle patches can be done in two different ways, according to Brenda Priddy. The first method is by sewing. For this, you will need your patches, tailor’s chalk, a seam ripper, an upholstery needle, and your thread, which will probably be black. The first thing you will need to do is lay the patch on the spot that you want, and outline it with the tailor’s chalk. Then you will need to use the seam ripper to open the bottom edge of the lining in the vest or jacket. This ensures that the patch is not sewn right through the lining. Once you have knotted your thread through your needle, you can begin sewing the patch on. When you’re done, don’t forget to close up the hole in the lining that was made with the seam ripper.
The second method is the gluing method. This requires your patches, rubbing alcohol, a soft cloth, and leather glue. You need to first clean the area where you want to put the patch. Do this by using the rubbing alcohol and the soft cloth. Once the area is cleaned, apply the leather glue to the back of the patch and press it into the area on the jacket or vest that you want it at. You should press and hold down the patch for at least a minute to get it to stick properly. Once all of the patches you’ll be applying are on, the jacket should sit for about 24 hours to let the glue fully dry. This method is much easier than the sewing method is, but the patches may come off much more easily.
Now that you know how to apply your patches, you can work on making your vest or jacket much more stylish. People will admire the personalization and want to add biker lifestyle patches to their jackets as well.
