Elbows patches go with blazers just like the smell of pipe smoke and chalk dust. Tweed jacket elbow patches give a coat that professorial air so essential to cultivating an aura of learned mysteriousness. A Harris tweed jacket is complete with that simple addition, as the patches serve both to instill a sort of shabby chic aesthetic and to interrupt the uniformity of the jacket's cut. It can also serve to cover up the wear and tear that occurs naturally over the years, helping a women's tweed jacket keep its form and integrity for longer than it otherwise would have. Patches are made in a number of different colors to complement the colors of the jacket, ranging from classic combinations such as brown and green to more unusual grey patches for black jackets. You can buy tweed jacket elbow patches from the vast inventory on eBay. These jackets are a professor's best friend, relaxed and yet distinguished, and it pays to take care of them and to refine their look.
