Apolis Standard Issue Civilian Blazers

In my sick world, I justify purchases by telling myself I’m buying “staples,” usually followed by the “this is the last one of these I’ll ever need” bit. It’s an endless cycle. And it doesn’t help when Apolis comes along and names one of its blazers “Standard Issue.” I mean, an unstructured, 100% cotton twill blazer that’s made in the US? With functional cuffs? That’s versatile enough to be dressed up or down? It doesn’t get more staple than that. I may have just added one to my cart, but it’s totally the last blazer I’ll ever need.

For price and purchase info, visit Apolis.

    I have this jacket in navy and love it, but I think you’d be hard-pressed (no pun intended) to dress it up. It becomes quite rumpled by the end of the day, so it’s definitely more of a casual option.

    Getting tired of seeing “Made in the USA” as something that automatically means something of quality. Not everything made in the USA is quality – look at some of the fine citzens we have born & raised in this country. As far as actual goods goes, you take care of something and it will last.

    If you have ever owned anything from apolis you know of its quality. Great products. Im getting tired of seeing “made in China”
    There is not enough made in USA but we are getting there.

    Animan, I’ve often wondered about this myself. Why is the default position about American made products have to be that it is quality made? There are workers throughout the world who take pride in the goods they produce just as there are those who slack off and may not care about end product quality. How are American workers immune from this reality?

      @Animan and @Ruben – Firstly, read this: http://putthison.com/post/1462670297/q-and-answer-whats-a-country-of-origin-worth

      Secondly, no one here is asserting that all US-made garments are of higher quality. Rather, we’re attempting to spotlight well made things that also happen to be made in America. I’m not sure if you’ve read the Well Spent about page or not, but that’s kind of the focus of the site.

      Thanks for reading,

    Oof. Just saw the Indigo Chore Jacket on the Apolis website. That thing looks great.
