Catch a Wave In J.Crew + Apolis Swim Trunks
J.Crew has just released the results of a collaborative swim trunk project with surfer bros (actual brothers) Raan and Shea Parton, creators of the menswear label Apolis. Drawing inspiration from their jet set lives as children, the two brothers began Apolis in 2004 with a pretty endearing mission—global advocacy (FYI: apolis is Greek for “global citizen”). The brand offers a range of surf-but-still-smart looking clothing and accessories that are made locally in California, but also partake in a little sartorial Peace Corps-ing by also using manufacturers in developing countries such as Uganda, Peru, and Bangladesh. As part of J.Crew’s “In Good Company” collection, which brings together collab pieces from over 50 partnerships with brands boasting a heritage vibe, this cotton chambray swim trunk makes us nostalgic for the Southern Californian beach life of the Sixties. Classic but functional for today’s man, it comes with a practical side pocket and an adjustable drawstring waistband. Actually, very now. The where to buy, right this way…
So get prepped for the warm season and order your pair online at jcrew.com ($98). And if you live in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, or Costa Mesa, you might even be lucky enough to find them in your local J.Crew.
