We're all familiar with NASCAR drivers' outfits, which bear
the logos of the companies that sponsor their racing team.
How about jackets that, instead of product or corporate
logos, bear customized patches for the various be or
participates inliefs, interests, hobbies, or causes that person
An online interface would enable the customer to
pick the desired patches and determine their location (sleeve,
chest, back, etc.).
The beauty of this is, you could have all SORTS of logos. You
could have "GOD" logos and "ATHEISM" logos, "SEX" or
"CHASTITY," "ECOLOGY" or "DEVELOPMENT," "BASEBALL" or
"CURLING" or... whatever.
pretty much like the Girl Scouts

||Like students who cover their jackets and backpacks with
political pins as their sole form of activism.
||//bear customized patches
||Is this some kind of social project to give soon to be unemployed polar bears a new trade?
||This is advocacy of advocacy. Anyway, there are already
articles of clothing that serve this purpose. Just yesterday I
saw 'Faith', 'WWJD?', something related to a charity
associated with professional
wrestling, and 'Juicy'.
||[21Q] you seem to be assuming that this idea is
merely the lazy man's alternative to the tradition of
sewing patches onto one's clothes. In actual fact,
the idea is much more sophisticated than that, as
[smendler] will now explain:
||No, not curling! How can you justify supporting that???
||ummm, errrr, ahhhh.... 21Q's got a point, actually,
buuuut I'm also suggesting patches for abstract
||Perhaps just ribbons pinned to one's chest, or colourful rubber bracelets?
||Something novel should this way come. Like lenticular sponsor jacket logos. "Sponsors" camera angle at 18 degrees,"Just Causes" chimera angle at 0 degrees.
