Re: Are Patches On Sweaters Coming back?

I hope so! I love this look! Very British, very equestrienne....goes perfectly with my Dooney & Burke satchels, with the buckles and great hardware!

I think its a classic and very classy look!

I love Louis Dell'Olio's look....lets see if he does a sweater with patches!

No they are NOT fashionable at all

Mine looked like this - not this color though. The patches are the same knit fabric in a contrast color.

I had seen these at JCP and thought they were very cute! Had I not already blown the budget for my days shopping, I would have loved to have added some to my closet!{#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}

I love the look too. I don't care if it's considered fashionable or not.

Cuddlesmama - I purchased two pullover crew neck sweaters from JCP this past fall that had patches on the elbows.

They still have them online. Very cute. it doesn't say what company made them for Penney. St. Johns bay? etc

Not good for shorter people.......the patches are down by your wrists

A Talbot's sweater I bought this winter had elbow patches. They are the same color as the sweater and not noticeable. I just liked everything else about the sweater!

The problem with contrasting patches is that, if they don't hit just in the right place, they look odd.

I don't like elbow patches on sweaters or on blazers.

I bought three cardigan sweaters at Target with patches on the elbows.
