    Anybody tried doing this? I have a really cool patch I was thinking of putting on mine when I get them (probably on the back or the front of the left leg), but am afraid that the shorts will rip more easily, esp because the material stretches. Just wondering if anyone had any experience doing this kind of stuff.

    Charles MacCarthy puts a SSF patch on his Tapout loose fit shorts. My fighter Lloyd Baldwin also has a patch on his Sprawl shorts and there doesn't seem to be any damage to the shorts. You will be fine adding patches to the shorts.

    I was thinking of doing that to- adds some "bling" to your shorts and make your shorts look different from everyone else.

    get them stitiched on real good though- or they could off

    I'm going to be slapping on a patch on my new fight shorts. My shorts are a homemade special so we'll see how they hold up.

    Yeah, it took me a while to find the right material in the right color/pattern. It's cotton, but it almost feels like canvas. I'm hoping to compete in a grappling event in December, so if they survive going through drills, they should be OK for comp. I saw some ripstop nylon at the fabric store so I might be making another one.

    I'll try and put a pic up soon, my digital camera just died so I need to pick up a new one. I'll be buying some real grappling shorts soon too though.

    wash the patch good before you sew it on. they shrink and if you dont wash em first ,they draw up and look crappy around the edge. Also, dont bother trying on elastic materials, its disaster.

    I was wondering if you could just super glue a patch on loose fit fight shorts since most are made from that vinal-type material.
