Apolis | Official Affiliate Thread

post #1 of 514
Thread Starter 

Apolis is privileged to join the growing number of brands maintaining a Styleforum affiliate thread.  We recognize Styleforum as a growing community of informed members who appreciate the values Apolis embraces: people and product.

 

In 2004, brothers Raan and Shea Parton founded Apolis with the 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.

 

We invite Styleforum members to pose questions about fit and fabrication, upcoming releases, and our global advocacy projects.  We also welcome suggestions for product development.  As evidenced by 2008's Apolis + Styleforum + Context Madison Shirt Jacket, SF is among our greatest resources for understanding our audience.

 

To learn more about the Apolis brand and our history, watch our “Common Thread” video.  The Apolis team looks forward to being an active part of the Styleforum community.

Welcome guys. It's been a long time, but I'm glad we are together again.

I've personally known Shea and Raan Parton for about 5 years now, and their brand has grown quite a bit since then, as has this little forum of ours.

I don't know if they still live and work in their old digs, with their "board room", and the sausage place downtown, but I remember that it was a good night talking about parachute jackets, cashmere sweaters, and over embellished jeans.

Anyway, I'm rambling.

Welcome again.

Cheers,

Fok.

Excuse slow follow up, we're slowly getting acclimated into the SF family!! Where in New York you based? Come by Apolis: Nomad Market in Chelsea. Take the Highline and exit between 18th and 19th! Tomorrow we're releasing the photostory  of the Oct. 18th private reception, here's a preview for the SF community...

Good question. Definitely on one of the fashion blogs. Maybe Cool Hunting or Selectism. I have an acquaintance in town that has done some of your photo-shoots, I think. Love the philanthropic side of things. Please consider partnering with Rotary to do something to help with the eradication of Polio.

Great to hear from you, thanks for the reply. We love Cool Hunting & Selectism, great to hear they have helped us connect to you. Who's your photographer acquaintance? Glad the philanthropic side of things resonates with you. We love Rotary, we'll keep them in mind, feel free to send us more info. Thanks again for the reply.

Based in Manhattan. I was able to make it out to the private reception. Not sure if any other SFers were able to make it out.

Which Shea? You guys need nicknames. It's confusing otherwise.
