Apolis Indigo-Dyed Wool Chore Jacket – Just Released

Apolis Indigo Wool Chore Jacket - RawrDenim.com

With all the focus on indigo-dyed fabrics like denim and canvas, sometimes people forget that there actually is another possibility when it comes to beautiful, dramatic fades – wool. Synonymous with winter, the cold and general scratchiness, wool sometimes gets the short end of the stick. The fabric comes in all forms and one such form is the beautiful deep indigo as seen on the Apolis Indigo Wool Chore Jacket.

The Los Angeles-based company was founded in 2004 by brothers Raan and Shea Parton with a foundation in global advocacy. The word “Apolis” itself is Greek, and means “citizen of no country” or “global citizen.” Working with manufacturers in both developed and underdeveloped regions of the world, Apolis hopes to empower people to determine their own future. The brand has a special section of their site where they highlight the manufacturers they work with and the advocacy impact on that region.

Apolis sources the 13.5 Oz. wool for its chore jacket from Italy with two differently dyed versions being used. The two different wools create subtle variations in colour and texture, warranting a closer look.  The indigo dye bleeds just like raw denim, which is something to take into consideration when wearing certain layers underneath it. Similar to unwashed denim, the coat could be washed once to minimize dye transfer.

Additional details include fallen buffalo horn fisheye buttons, a hidden pocket, and a classic workwear silhouette. Rounding out the jacket is a rounded collar, pocket flaps, and raglan shoulder construction. Be sure to check out the brand’s website where they offer other indigo wool items, like a bow tie, scarf, shirt jacket, and more.

    $298 is dirt cheap by comparison to what the Jap boys are charging for their joints.

    That’s one helluva finely-tailored jacket, and the capacity for fades seems promising. I would have never thought about indigo-dyed wool beforehand, but this is an impressive result.

    These might been “restocked”, but definitely not “just released”. They been around since at least the beginning of fall.

    I wouldn’t risk it.

    That’s a dope ass jacket. It would be annoying to have to avoid wearing any lighter colors underneath it though, more annoying than jeans bleeding. If you could endure the initial bleeding this would look sick. This is a nice “outside the box” use of indigo.
