I guess humans are all about recycling. In a subconscious manner, we recycle and the society ends up loving it. Elbow patches are the subtle detailing, emerging from sport coats for men, for nothing but practical reasons. Today, they’re a fashion statement of sorts and I admit, they make me happy!
No harm that it also provide my sweater some added protection for the constant abrasion and prevents the unsightly furring of fabric from all that elbowing I’ll be doing at the year-end sales (:
If you’re feeling crafty: make your own, or buy some as gifts/ treats for yourself for being considerate. Teehee. (click on last 2 above to shop)
