Patched-Out Denim Vest

Levi's Denim Trucker Vest, $78
Rockabilia patches, Price varies

We've seen some awesome patched denim vests in our time, but like any good DIY effort, it has to be done by hand. We can't see the back of this one that Joe Strummer's wearing, but we hope it looks like the one on the right. There's plenty of great vintage finds to be had, and each one is really unique — but if you want to earn that street cred, you need to start from scratch.
