J.Crew has just launched their Personalize-it Patch Kit which includes all of the essentials for true clothing customization. Well-equipped with a colorful selection of patches, ribbons and embroidery thread, the kit also offers up five easy-to-follow design ideas as well as tips for achieving the denim look du jour.
