WWE getting into the black metal patch game is not something I saw coming, but hey, he's already had a shirt that looked like a Darkthrone album cover. The crescent moon being a clear Leviathan patch reference is an interesting start.

As the resident Metal Guy on here (who has five patched vests and jackets FWIW) I have to say that is pretty cool. But would I wear it? ...

It will be cool to see examples with other patches on it though.

Are denim vests in style? I would love an excuse to wear one in public.

I don't think there's been a full-on hipster co-option yet but I think they're a little more accessible publicly than before. Of course they've always been in fashion to me. 

What was WALTER doing sitting there? Has WWE signed him?

He's in NXT UK. His first match streamed yesterday.

Ah. I forgot there even was an NXT UK -- then again I don't have the Network.

EDIT: Heh, poor Jack Starz. WALTER lit him up pretty good.

Now that I remember, I did see a teen in a Sunrise Publix yesterday wearing a denim jacket, with an AC/DC patch on it. I doubt that kid has ever heard a full AC/DC album in his life.

I don’t know if denim jackets are trendy, but I feel certain that denim jackets for a pro wrestler based on an extremely niche subculture referencing a somewhat infamous one-man DSBM act are not. But that’s what makes this kinda fun.

You know you've chopped someone hard, when a palm reader can tell your future by looking at the other guy's chest.

One of @Curt McGirt's vests:

Ordered this 2 weeks ago and I just got it in the mail:

Great stuff.

Now I'm just waiting for WWE to drop some European Union, 1-2 or WALTER merch.

As much as I appreciate that backpatch I've never been able to watch Larry's show -- the social anxiety button in my brain gets absolutely hammered over and over again by his behavior on it haha

(I do have a Bathory patch on my first ever vest though, and hand-painted the Mercyful Fate logo on my leather which knocks King off the list)

The Kramer painting would have been perfect as the centerpiece for that vest.

Dolph's not a hipster. He's Stuart from Beavis & Butt-Head fully grown.

Sami Callihan has some very metal shirts I'll probably end up buying.

I was quite literally looking that gif up before I saw someone posted it.

I've seen indy fans wearing them with patches from different companies. Surely, that's kind of a weird cross-section.

I've never had them.

I've put some patches on some things in yesteryear (a Cannibal Corpse patch on an Army surplus coat, which I asked my mom to sew on), but I've always been of the opinion denim should stop at below the waste.  Cliff Burton maybe was the only dude to make jean jackets look cool.

I do have an awesome Morgoth (Odium) patch that I've never put on anything.

I love PWG's "screaming gorilla" design but I'd draw the line at wearing it as a jacket patch.

I've got two denim trucker jackets, two corduroy trucker jackets, AND a black denim vest with patches and buttons. No rasslin' patches or pins on it, although I've seen others do it in SoCal.
