Pins and patches might be Toronto's next style staple

Pins and patches are quickly becoming a style staple for folks in Toronto. Whether you're looking to give some old pieces new life or stitch something back together in a fashionable way, these bits and bobs are better than a simple bobby pin or sew job.

Here are a few Toronto brands to snag pins and patches from.

The Button Machine
As the brand's name suggests, The Button Machine specializes in buttons - but the shop makes more than just pins. You'll find stickers, patches, tees and more - most of which have a Toronto theme.

Really Man

REALLY, MAN?
Stacey McCool, the designer behind REALLY, MAN?, cooks up some of the witchiest and most stylish pins and patches in the city. You'll find tarot-inspired baubles and expletive riddled pieces dominating her collection.

Rosehound Apparel

Rosehound Apparel
Rosehound Apparel offers a ton of pins and patches ranging from celeb mugs to saucy statements. Favourites include the Leo DiCaprio pin and the "Sorry I'm Not Sorry" patch. Pieces can be found at several shops around the city including Likely General, Coal Miner's Daughter and 96 Tears Vintage.

No Fun Press

No Fun Press
The name No Fun Press pretty much says it all. The brand's collection is stacked with pins perfect for your inner Debbie Downer - sporting phrases like "Anti-You" and "Cancel Everything." Toronto stockists include Sonic Boom, Kid Icarus and Soop Soop.

Stuntin
