Elbow Patches

Autumn 11

A prolific design detail, elbow patches were not restricted to jackets, featuring on fine-gauge knits and cardigans. A unisex trend, elbow patches are designed to give knitwear a sartorial twist, as the idea of dressing better seeps into the mainstream. It also allows brands to push up the price of what are normally considered basic garments. The proof of the quality is in the stitching, so beware of puckering seams on appliqué stitching.
