I threw this up to show the difference between the pld pbj patch and the new one on my 007's. Its really beautiful, and the texture is awesome.

That one comes like that.

Mine started out white. =P


I'm gonna echo that sentiment. Headtowall has the grail of PBJ's as far as I'm concerned. Sorry that you think they're too tight :(

It definitely looks good, not to mention the rest of those jeans. Can't wait to see how the 007s break in.

Thanks Justin! The fit's not terrible, just a little more snug than would be ideal. Lesson learned: Don't get other jeans in the same size as your APCs.

Wow some of these patches are beautiful. I love the cowhide, snake skin and just of the imprinted leather.. I saw someones personally made jeans on here a little while ago.. Perhaps they might have been in a Momotaro thread and thye had pony hide patches. They were fantastic :D

also what does självtillfredställelse mean David...

I have seen this before...


thanks all for the wonderful tag share

^ to be honest I'm not sure if you should believe that.
I've never read or heard about it anywherer else then on there.
And also the placement of the leather patch really doesn't make much sense if that was it's function. Try reaching a knife back there to polish it, I always just use my right tigh, no need for leather.
