From the start, Apolis has been a serious favorite here at Secret Forts and over the past few years, I've had the pleasure to come to know the Parton brothers and consider them among the most righteous of dudes. I started crushing on this indigo dyed chore jacket back in March '10 when I had the pleasure of working with Shea when he blew into town for a few days. Recently, I returned home from a trip out west to this beauty awaiting me.
Beautiful indigo dyed Italian wool. Rounded collar. Exterior patch pockets, interior phone/pen pocket. Buffalo horn buttons. Rivet reinforced, partially hidden placket. Raglan sleeves. Triple stitched seams. And the signature Apolis red-stitched Cross near the waist line. Super versatile, super sharp. Looking forward to wearing this one for a long time to come and will be sure to document how it fades, ages and gets better over time. Looks like the start of another beautiful friendship.
