Levi’s 501s with patches

These were the jeans I'd always wear to gigs in Manchester in the mid/late 80s, and over time I added patches, bleach, safety pins, etc. Eventually, my mum complained about "the state of them!" and insisted I threw them out. I would go out wearing other jean,s with these jeans in a plastic bag, and would change into them on the train. There are four Black Sabbath patches, one Led Zeppelin, and one Kerrang. I added the beer towel to cover a massive hole I accidenally created with the over-enthusiastic use of bleach.


denim jacket with patches

This is the denim jacket I pretty much lived in between 1986 and 1989, when it got a bit too small. Most patches came from a stall at Basingstoke market.
