Just got some patches from Tipsy Gipsy for my leather. Does anyone know the exact regulations on how to affix patches to the brown leather flight jacket? Uniform Regs Ch. 6 says you can either use hook and loop (velcro) or have it sewn on, but should I just sort of eyeball where to place the patch on the left breast? And I've got an American flag patch for the shoulder as well. Apparently it's not officially allowed. Here's what regs say: (a) Brown Jacket Insignia/Patches. Insignia/patches shall be worn on brown leather flight jackets as follows: (1) Attachments. Logos may be affixed either hook and pile or directly to the jacket. Hook and pile fasteners will be black or brown and cut to the shape of the logo to be affixed. (2) Left Breast. Black or brown 2 inches by 4 inches leather name tag. Centered in the top field will be the aircrew designation insignia (i.e., pilot, NFO aircrew EAWS, etc.). The name in block letters will occupy the lower field and will include a minimum first name or initial and last name. Where appropriate, billet title (ie., CO, XO, CAG, etc.) is optional. (3) Optional Logos. One command patch may be worn over the right breast pocket. Maximum width may not exceed 4-1/2 inches. No other patches are authorized. And on a side note... what do you guys consider "brief stops" to and from work when wearing a flight suit? Obv a gas station, but what about the post office or something to that degree?
