Fine Quality Colorful Cloth Patches

patches

I recently caught this old advert on the Old School Ads Twitter feed and it reminded me of the patch craze that I bore witness to in my youth. I personally was immune to this particular craze, though badges were a different story. Patches required too much effort to attach them to clothing and were simply too permanent for me.

Which of these would you have worn? A Road-Runner “Beep Beep”? The Flash Gordon, Popeye or Felix? For me, if I had to choose something, I’d have a $1 Chopper.
