why this product

Ice cream, the shore, chambray: these are the summer staples we can’t live without. Chambray has been keeping people crisp and cool since 1595, when the fabric was first invented in France, and today it’s a quintessential workwear fabric that this Los Angeles-based company has reworked into an understated, handcrafted necktie. Raan and Shea Parton, the brothers behind the ethically-conscious brand Apolis, have taken their signature utilitarian aesthetic and applied it to these streamlined neckties inspired by a World War II officer’s tie. Made from just-heavy-enough, richly textured 5.5 ounce chambray that is sourced from Spain, these neckties are individually crafted by hand in Los Angeles at a studio staffed by just seven employees. Empowering small manufacturers and responsibly sourcing their fabrics—it’s this kind of socially-conscious production process that Apolis (“global citizen” in Greek) stands for, and why we love what they do. The necktie’s no-frills design, sturdy construction, and modern width ensure that it will be in heavy rotation in your warm-weather wardrobe for a lifetime.

use & care

This chambray necktie pairs well with a classic solid-colored oxford shirt, or use it to add some contrast to a patterned or plaid button-down. Should you lean in a little too close to your dinner plate while wearing this necktie, you can spot clean it and hang it to dry, or you may choose to have it dry-cleaned.

production & design

These neckties are designed by Apolis, a California-based company which focuses on socially responsible fabric sourcing and manufacturing. They are made from 5.5 oz crisp chambray sourced from Spain and features a standard back tie loop, so there's no need for the addition of a tie clip. Each necktie is individually handcrafted at a 2,500 square foot studio in Los Angeles.
