Classic Original Patch Designs Are Back Again
Who can forget the sights, sounds and even smells of their first hunting trip? The brightly colored fall leaves turning the hillsides golden and crimson and all shades in between. The crunch of autumn leaves or even new fallen snow underfoot as you walked the woods, the smell of woodsmoke mixed with the pungent scent of your breakfast bacon frying in the skillet; these are the beginning of a lifetime of hunting memories.
Nothing can recreate the thrill of nervous tension that grabbed hold as you saw your first buck and slowly raised up your gun to line up the shot and gently squeezed the trigger, just like your father taught you to do.
And like many young hunters of the last generations, you may have received a colorful embroidered v patch to commemorate bagging your first deer, or first buck or even a special 12-point trophy animal. These timeless classic embroidered designs, produced by the Chicago Embroidery Co., were once offered exclusively by The Sportsmen’s Guide to their customers. After the catalog discontinued offering these special hunting
embroidered patches, Chicago Embroidery Co., a business deeply rooted in the hunting culture with nearly 125 years of experience producing patches and emblems, decided the tradition should live on.
Through a special exclusive licensing agreement with SportingPatches.com, these designs are once again available — original high-quality embroidered patches — the same eight, ten and twelve-point buck emblems that you may have proudly worn on your hunting jacket years ago. These are the same classic design and product quality, not a cheap, imitation knockoff — the exact same patches that were sold for many years to previous generations of sportsmen. Acrylic thread prevents colors from fading and the vinyl-backed ducking helps maintain the shape of the die-cut embroidered patch.
“These embroidered patches are a treasured memory for many hunters, a link to their childhood when they first began hunting. Due to overwhelming demand, we at SportingPatches.com are pleased and excited to be able to bring back the original embroidered patch designs to a new generation or hunters or to who are young at heart,” said Rob Faurot, president of Chicago Embroidery Company. “What’s old is new again.”
