2011-2012 school year: protective gear

I honestly have no idea why some jackets have elbow patches. I guess functionally, the elbow takes a lot of wear and tear, but is there another reason? Enlighten me, folks. I’m clueless.

  1. Yeah, I’m pretty sure it’s solely because of the wear and tear on elbows. Not only do they get rested on desks a lot, but anywhere where there’s lots of bending fatigues the fabric, especially a thick stiff fabric like a suit jacket.

    Also, it makes you look more professorial, although the effect is lesser for anyone under 55 who doesn’t smoke a pipe. XD

  2. […] patterned after the way I draw myself, but with the student’s own personal touches. Notice the elbow pads! Like this:LikeBe the first to like this […]
