Ok, so got my vest. Gota few patches and pins.

Is there an etiquette/proper pin and patch placement to go on there, or is it just "free-for-all".

Thanks'

I actually don't wear a vest (or CUT as it is known in some circles). From what I have seen your name (if you have it) location and ride/ rallypatches would go higher on the front of the vest. Support patches (POW and such) go lower on the front.

The back is normally for club patches. Be carefull you don't put anything on the back that could be mistaken fora club you don't belong to.

Its your vest, put 'em where you want.

The only advice would be against back patches as the back patch clubs generally object, usually in a physical way.

Here's mine on a very cold Easter Saturday at the Menin Gate.

The only thing you really have to worry about in respect to back patches is multi-piece patches. Something with a center, upper rocker, and lower rocker, as well as a possible tab to the right side is considered a "club" patch, and even if you put the back of your vest together to "look" that way without any club affiliations whatsoever, 3-piece patch clubs tend to get a bit tense about it.

I'm not saying you can't do it, I'm simply advising that if you like your skin, I wouldn't recommend it.

Anything on the front is generally fair game.

So what you are saying is I should be careful in designing a patch for the back of my vest?

I hope to get one for me and the wife one day specific for Myakka City.

Right now our gang has two in it. Me and the,,,,,

I better stop right now before I get in trouble.
