MANGCHI FAN JACKET: PATCHED PINK BOMBER

Hi!

I just spent a few days in San Francisco and Portland. It was a great time…I was able to have drinks and a delicious dinner with my bff Miki at Coqueta restaurant in SF (where she bartends and makes the best drinks!) and also catch two live shows of the insane punk/hiphop/balladic band, Mangchi.

My boyfriend Eddie is the DJ/producer of the band and I adore all the other members of Mangchi, so it was awesome spending time with them and seeing them live. And since I’m their #1 fan (well, maybe #2 after Arthur) I decided to transform my plain pink bomber jacket into a Mangchi fan jacket simply by applying some iron-on patches.

Eddie got me a bunch of these rad (and rare!) Mangchi patches. I believe they were all designed by David. The bunny looks the dopest on the pink jacket.

I spent a lot of time thinking about where I wanted to place each patch, and overall I’m very happy with the placement!

Elbow patch is key. And I love how my metallic Defuria bag pairs with the pink.

Iron-on patches are awesome, but I had a hard time getting the glue to adhere to the polyester. Probably would have been no problem on a cotton tee or hoodie, but the jacket just didn’t take it well. I was also afraid to hold the iron over the patch too long because I was afraid the material might burn.

I’m terrible at sewing, so I used safety pins to keep the loose patches in place. That’s how we did it in my punk rock teenage days anyway. Some things never change.

I layered a Forever 21 flannel over a super cute David Choe graphic tee.

I really like how you transformed your jacket! It looks so easy and simple! Using iron on patches can be annoying though because I always get worried that they won’t stick on for long. But I like your idea of using pins. That definitely adds a nice touch
