Classic Rock and Heavy Metal Patch Vest

Feb 2017 Update: https://tshirtslayer.com/battle-jacket/classic-rock-and-heavy-metal-patc...

My patch vest with bands that I enjoy listening to. Most members of this site won't consider most of the bands very heavy, but it is what I enjoy listening to and don't judge others on their metal tastes.
Currently a work in progress that I started about 8 months ago. All patches are hand sewn including the cross back patch modeled after the fret inlays on Tony Iommi's guitar. I left the cross blank so that I can collect signatures if I am to be so fortunate.
The vest currently has patches from 75 different bands with only two duplicates. Plans are to keep adding until full, then tear everything off and set it up in a much more dense arrangement. Some patches are vintage, some official, some bootleg, and some custom.
Please let me know what you think of my work, but I don't need a reminder that Steve Miller Band isn't metal enough for you. Thank you for your time.

June 1, 2016 Update: I have posted one more image to show my current progress with the vest. Ripped everything off over Christmas and have been slowly sewing everything back on in a tighter layout without overlapping logos. I have acquired a few patches since my last post so I hope to have all the patches I currently have sewn on in the next month or two, and then I will post a proper update. Doubt I will have it filled for at least a year or two.
