On the Subject of Vintage Military...

Apolis Activism made only six of the Vietnam Jacket. It is cut from dead stock oil treated tarp originally intended for tent construction during the Vietnam War.
No longer available...

for an alternative, check out theworkshopbysam.blogspot.com. he makes custom work wear. ive ordered a custom denim shirt from him and it was superb. he's got a referral system going on, so if you decide to mail him, tell him jeremy told you about his blog. he'll give you and i a discount.

i like the concept of the jacket, wish apolis had made more though. this guy's shirt is also great. never underestimate the power of a great oxford button down.

The jacket's great. And although I've read comments elsewhere regarding Context's styling being a little this or a little that (pants too high, shirts tucked, etc...)I think Ryan(Huber, whom I believe styles most shoots, correct me if I'm wrong) does an incredible job of making everything simple and approachable and damn near perfect in its entirety. I too wish this jacket was still available. Bottom line, Apolis and Context kill it.
