trendspotting: elbow patches

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

To me, there is something very grandfatherly and charming about elbow patches. I don't know if it's the unexpected break up of the pattern that gets me (plaid or stripes both look divine) or the transformation into a young, nerdy librarian from 1960's France I believe happens when you slip on an elbow-patched garment. Even though the colder weather is slowly disintegrating in New York, I'm delighted that similar pieces to the ones above keep showing up on store racks (there's something very autumnal about them that transports me to a perfect crisp day where brown suede boots and color changing leaves are a must)!

What do you think about elbow patches? On the way out or forever in?
