What goes around comes back around. That’s true with many things. It’s true with Karma, it always will come back around. It’s true with the earth, as it continues to rotate. Additionally, it’s true with fashion. Now, pins & patches are being launched back into pop culture.

Pins & patches became popular to put onto clothing back in the 1960s, after the Vietnam War. People would use them as a way to display their political or social affiliations. That fad stuck with the counterculture throughout the next couple of decades, and remained a fixture in rock and roll culture. Fans would wear patches and pins of their favorite bands to showcase their admiration for the music.

Today, it’s still common to see pins and patches used to show support of a band or specific show. It’s become a big thing in the festival world, as well. It’s not rare to see pins and patches on shirts, jean jackets, backpacks, or hats. There are now more options than ever for pins and patches. You still have them for bands, but there are also funny memes, sayings, and imagery that you can wear, as well.

Pins & Patches

Whether you’re a long-time collector, or someone looking to start a collection, finding the right patches or pins for you can prove to be a challenge. Patches and pins are like tattoos for many people. They’re deeply personal and reflect your unique personality. You can’t just slap any logo on your backpack without knowing what it is! You want it to be a loud statement of you! So, I’ve decided to make it easier for you by showing you some I’ve found that I love. Hopefully, you’ll like them, too. If not, maybe they’ll make you think of a pin or patch you’d like to find. Here’s a list I put together on Amazon. Check it out below!

  • Sriracha “Hot Stuff”

    This is the perfect pin to add to your collection, or an ideal one to start a new collection. Who doesn’t love Sriracha? Oh, wait. I get it. The Sriracha isn’t the only “hot stuff” in this equation, is it? They’re talking about you.

  • Duck On A Skateboard Patch

    I like this patch so much I might be a jean jacket so I can have something to sew it to. That’s one cool duck. I wish I could be that duck. I think every collection of patches and pins needs at least one funny patch. It can’t all be serious.

  • “Don’t Hate Me Because I’m A Little Cooler” Pin

    I have to be honest: this is adorable. There’s nothing I love more than some good word play. So, this is obviously right up my alley. A good selection for the Smart Aleck in all of us. If you’re looking for some humor to add to your collection, I’d highly recommend this one.

  • Peace & Love Patch

    A patch like this is necessary in every collection. It has basically every symbolism of peace there is. There’s the dove, the peace sign, the actual word peace, I think it’ll drive the point home effectively.

  • Ghost Pins

    It can be spooky szn year round with these cute little ghosts. Who says ghosts have to be strictly a Halloween thing? I don’t think it should work that way. I think these are fun, and I’d sport them any month of the year.

  • AC/DC Patch

    If you’re going to have a collection of patches and pins, you need to have a couple iconic bands in there. I think AC/DC is a great choice. Jean jackets and rebellious, and few bands embody that better than AC/DC.
