Navy blue plate coat

Some magnets are strong enough to go through the fabric. You can also get a pocket clip (kind of like a pocket protector that hangs out) and put your patch on that.

The clip idea might actually work better.

So do you glue the magnet to the inside of the coat?

I got these for my patches: https://www.amazon.com/totalElement-Magnetic-Fastener-Adhesive-10-Pack/dp/B00EHK287M/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1510952855&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=name+tag+magnets&psc=1

I use the adhesive to stick the magnet to the patch and then reach inside my shirt to attach the other side. Nothing gets stuck to the shirt. 

You can also cut them out of boxes that have them and they are smaller. Usually find them on electronics or fancy soaps.

To piggy back @Mister B. When you attach the magnet to the patch. Cut out a thin piece of cardboard or something stiff to glue to the patch. Then glue the magnet to that.

If you don't. The patch could curl as it heats up. Which looks horrible. (Trust me... I have made this mistake in the past.)
