Vest Patches and placement 6 Years, 3 Months ago  
I am not an OCD perfectionist...well, ok, maybe a little, but I have a few patches I have picked up recently, and my PGR patch I got a year ago, a memorial patch I have had awhile and a USA and TX flag patch I wiant ot sew on.

My question is, being that I am a total newbie to the cruiser world, what are the right places for this stuff? I kinda feel it is my vest, put them where I damn well please, but as time goes on I am sure I will collect more, so mayber there are rules to follow??

Maybe yall have some suggestions or pics??

thanks!

If you have an American flag patch it goes on the upper left of the vest. No other patch or pin should be higher than the flag patch. Other than that put em where you want em.

And of course it's not wise to wear a 3 piece patch on the back.

Ok, now that can get a little sticky, there is the counsel of clubs (hells angles.. ect.) that watch over this kind of thing, Really.
Now if itís a touring and riding patch, put it where you want.
The Patriot Guard patch should be the only patch on the back of your vest, no other patch should go above it.
If you have a MC (motorcycle club) patch, that should go on the back alone also. You have to make sure itís a club sanctioned by the Counsel or you might be ask to remove it or have it removed. The first is always the best.
The Patriot Guard is not a Motorcycle club and the Hells Angles of Atlanta are actually a part of our group.
The front of the vest should have no patch higher than the American Flag.
The only really tricky thing is the back ďColorsĒ, itís always best to know the rules before you wind up at the side of the road surrounded by the Out Laws or Pagans, they are not going to care that you didnít know.
Remember thatÖ..

I had to go read up on the 1% thing...never knew anything about that. Geeezz..what a mess that can be.

So I should just get a larger PGR and take up the back, then everyone will be OK.

So this info said, where would internet forum patches go? lol

Jason, what Mark is referring to when he says three piece is a large central patch with the clubs "logo" with rockers on top and bottom, bottom usually referring to territory. If you want to put a bunch of smaller patches on the back of your vest you'll be fine. Just like in life, don't act like an idiot and you'll be fine.

For those curious and wishing to learn a little more, here's a great resource for info.
