The Art of the Battle Jacket:
Part 3

A lot of our readers are creative people; we know this because some of our most popular posts feature DIY clothing like hand-patched, studded and painted battle jackets, vests and crust pants. This post is going to focus on leather, because I love leather, and painted leather specifically. Painting on a beautiful leather jacket or vest adds that extra dimension of love that I really appreciate. It’s amazing to see the effort that has gone into creating a truly unique piece, especially when it’s a detailed back patch in vibrant colors, or a band logo that has been lovingly painted in the perfect spot. It takes a while to achieve the perfect look with painted patches – the jacket I made for my husband took me three months to complete. And above all, each piece shows the individuality of the wearer, in the placement, colors and images chosen to adorn this priceless garment. After the jump, check out a selection of leather battle jackets found on Tshirtslayer
