    If they were added to cover a hole no.

    More details on the jacket please. How old is it? Are you the original owner or does it have some other history? Pgotos would be nice.

    ... Probably. I'm sure you could cut off the lapels or the sleeves if you wanted to, as well.

    More seriously, why would you want to do that?

    I don't like patches and when I often find myself in shops not being able to find patchless jackets I like, but find jackets that would be perfect were it not for the patches, so I'm wondering about new jackets.
