Simply stated, a lapel pin is a pin which is intended to be worn on the lapel of a jacket or coat. As with most simple terms, many variables and differing details were distilled down to make a single line definition. Lapel pins are generally small, under an inch or so, and are usually made to be a clearly identifiable motif. They are worn by men and women alike, and are usually worn one at a time. One reason lapel pins are such a popular item is that they can be easily customized.
Of course, lapel pins need not be worn only on the lapel. Many collectors may prefer to wear them on a lanyard or as a hat pin on a cap. They can also be worn as tie tacks if the post is long enough, or even pinned onto a favorite tote bag. Custom made lapel pins can be an ideal object for networking, breaking the conversational ice for many a convention-goers, traveler, transit lapel pin or seminar attendee. NASCAR fans nationwide immediately have something in common when they notice a crossed checkered flag or Daytona Speedway tack pin on a cap or jacket.
