Undercover Fabric Covered Badges

One of the best buys from the recent Club 21 Mens Sales Preview:-) I was not exactly interested in these very normal looking badges until Madeline, the SA from Club 21 Mens pointed it out to me while I was doing my rounds of sales preview shopping last Sunday. These versatile Undercover Fabric covered Badges comes in a series of 6 in 2 sizes. All wrapped with fabrics used in the current Undercover menswear collection and in varying colours and texture. Checks, prints, velvet, black, beige...which you can mix and match as per your preference. There were 2 sets for sale then, one with a more flamboyant combination consisting of brighter colours and even a leopard print fabric. I decided this series was more understated and with a stronger flair for preppy style:-)

I did not regret my pick:-) I begin to discover how charming these badges can look on jackets or shirts. Costing only a mere SGD $129 at full price, the sale made it an even better bargain! It can transform a simple blazer, adding visual interest and contrast as demonstrated by my pinning of the badges on my blazer:-) Love it!

Thanks to Madeline who is an angel to point these out to me!

I am a fan of collecting pins and brooches, I am crazy about them:-P

Retail price: SGD $129. Where to buy: Club 21 Mens at Four Seasons Hotel

these are cute. i like pinning on badges on some clothes items too. i tend to go for kitschy ones to clash with my granny style. my problem is i keep misplacing them!

Hi Tom Tuttle and Justin,

glad you like the badges:-) It just adds more visual interest to a plain jacket:-) without being overpowering.

And Erica is the seller (HG bags) who sells balenciaga bags online. Great prices:-) and a lot of styles in stock.
