Why don't you seek revenge by wearing the badges yourself and parading outside his hovel like a dashing young blade in the latest threads adorned with vintage pin badge glory?

I just left a horse's head on Wake's bed. As a warning, like. Not to annoy you any more. I don't think you'll be having any more trouble from that man.

A closer look at the Buzzcocks badges on ebay shows they're new. They look old. Or "tatty and cheap" I suppose. I don't know about the JD ones but they're probably new, too.

I saw his range and it looked pretty impresseive. But I just don't wear badges these days. I suppose once they would signify who I was and what I liked (and, by association, what I didn't like), but I don't need that referencing now. Plus, the jackets I wear now I tend not to want to ruin with pin-badge holes.

they're not for wearing.
you can't...touch... them.
and you look with your eyes not your fingers!

Whatever happened to badges?

I had a Heaven 17 'Penthouse and Pavement' badge that I wore religiously for about two years on my school blazer.
