Jackets and Patches

If you're in a club, you've got to have some type of club clothing to show off your club pride. Luckily, the BBCC has got some great patches - large and small - based on the club logo you see here. (That Brit flag is neatly nestled into the shape of Kern County, roughly cut on its left side by SLO County.)

I've seen the patches on Brit racing green polos, denim button ups and jackets of club members. I'm picking up one or two for a club jacket I'm creating.

I'm partial to the mechanic's style jacket and actually used to have one before it got lost somewhere on the pig trail of the Arkansas Ozarks. So I picked up a new slash pocket online at Automotive Worker. To be honest, I'm shamelessly stealing the idea from club member Jon Paschke, whose charcoal gray jacket's got a name patch, British car marque and club logos and flags stitched all over it.

The jacket is made of some secret blend of poly-cotton that will apparently withstand a nuclear explosion or good soaking in battery acid. So it'll have style and longevity. Should last me for a long time - that is unless I leave it in some old diner somewhere.

If you're interested in picking up a patch or two, contact the club treasurer Lou Zaninovich.

Very nice story Gary, I got the idea from another couple in car club we visited in Cal City.
One time I was mistaken for a real mechanic. LOL
