Roofing Patch - Part 1

Its that time again, for another long overdue update, but not quite as I intended...

You may remember in a post from last year about my attempts to produce a replica of the Ace Roofing Co. Lee patch that adorns the right hand side of the jacket. Well my favourite embroidery company in the Ukraine got back to me today after having the graphic I produced for a week and made this beauty:

Splendid! With no access to an original (I hope that changes one day) to decipher general shape (you wouldn't believe how difficult that is, even with the warmcanofcoke reproductions to work from) or size, I think this is rather spiffy.

I am currently waiting for this to arrive. For the cosplay readers of this blog who do intend to make the Ace jacket, I have asked the embroider if they are happy to produce more and if so, I could purchase a bunch to send to those interested.

In the meantime however I did produce a felt version that would have been a placeholder for an event we were due to attend, unfortunately complications arose so we couldn't in the end, but at least that gives us more time to get this sexy thing on the jacket before the next one.

More details about the poor reproduction in the next post...


  1. Hello, I realize this post is not recent, but I am in the process of making an Ace jacket right now. Do you happen to have any of these patches for sale? I would be very very happy to purchase one! Cheers!

    1. Hello! Unfortunately I never did get this patch from this ebay seller, they went very quiet on me. Sigh. Maybe if I can get a few of these, I'll post again.

      Thanks for your comment!

  2. I felt very happy while reading this site. This was really very informative site for me. I really liked it. This was really a cordial post. Thanks a lot!.
