SHOPS | apolis: common gallery


Apolis is usually one of my very first stops on my trips to Los Angeles. It's conveniently located right in the heart of the Art's District on 3rd street next to my other { favorites } such as Poketo & The Pie Hole. Apolis is strictly a store for menswear, but that never stops me from going in to browse their stock. Here's a little information on Apolis from their { website } of their kick-ass business ethos.

"In 2004, brothers Raan and Shea Parton founded Apolis with a simple idea that business can create social change. Their travels abroad immersed them in personal stories of struggle and survival and inspired them to create a business model that bridges commerce and economic development. Along with their commitment to global advocacy, they also understand the importance of sourcing and manufacturing locally. Whether it means partnering with manufacturers in Uganda, Peru, Bangladesh, or around the corner in Los Angeles, the Partons have used their model of “advocacy through industry” to empower people to determine their own future."

Yes, while their products may not be exactly 'minimum-wage' friendly, but quality in their locally produced products are definitely guaranteed. They also carry a great selection of magazines. This is where I usually grab the latest issue of Kinfolk magazine, and while I'm at it it's such a great excuse to drool over check out my { favorite } {accessories }! They also offer coffee and lemonade on the house while you browse. Best customer service ever? I think so! 

Food and shopping equals a happy Jamie.
