SoCal standouts: Menswear brands helping put L.A. on the map

The look: Military- and workwear-inspired basics with a do-gooder appeal. With a business motto of “advocacy through industry,” founder-brothers Raan and Shea Parton scour the globe for artisanal manufacturers to produce their designs. The key piece:

The washed linen Civilian blazer with a relaxed silhouette, lived-in patina and flap pockets, made in Portugal using “the highest social and environmental standards,” according to the website.

The fans: Global citizens of the creative and entrepreneurial sort. Where to buy: The Apolis flagship in downtown L.A., the brand’s Nomad Markets in Venice, Calif., and Tokyo and online at ApolisGlobal.com and at more than 100 independent retailers worldwide.

Women’s too? No.
