Early on in this blog’s life, I wrote about Apolis. In fact, one fateful evening, I met Shea Parton from Apolis, Ryan Huber from Context Clothing, James Wilson from Secret Forts, and Chris Olberding from Gitman Vintage. That meeting lead to lasting relationships with all four and many fortunate experiences.

However, until earlier this year, I’d never been afforded the opportunity to visit Shea and brother Raan’s shop on Traction Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. Thankfully, the good folks at Basil Hayden’s provided just such an opportunity, and it was great to see Raan and catch up on all things Apolis. Head over to Whiskey…. Among Other Things for more of my visit.
