The Apollo 1 Hoodie
The ultimate travel hoodie
Over the past year and a half we have been working on a very special project:
The LSA Apollo 1 Hoodie is the first piece to be released from our custom apparel collection.
The Perfect Fabric
Everything we make at our shop is made from dead-stock fabrics that we source in Downtown Los Angeles. This gives us a random sampling of amazing fabrics. But for the Apollo 1, we required consistency not variety.
In the end, we chose a natural colored 30oz, 100% French Terry Cotton. All knitted and loomed locally in DTLA. It was sanded and washed for the perfect snuggle factor.
You may recognize the red thread going through the seams inside the Apollo 1. We use this same stitching as we use when we make your scarves. On the Apollo 1, it helps us ensure quality control for ultimate durability.
Whimsically Functional Details
Sometimes we need a built-in eye-mask for taking naps while on the go.
With one tug on the chords, the eye-mask wraps around your face, transporting you instantly to a more restful place.
We also added extra padding to the arms — from above the elbow, all the way down to the wrist. Protecting your arms from all the sharp and cold surfaces in life (i.e. airplane armrests, lawnchairs, cliff edges, etc).
We also added extra padding to the ears to protect from cross-draft and to reduce the noise level of the world around you.
To keep your valuables protected we created a secret pocket inside the kangaroo pouch. Made from antimicrobial fabric, the pocket keeps your smart phone tucked close to your stomach, and prevents the pouch from slouching under the weight of your phone.
Since keys have a tendency to wander off, we added a hoop for safe keeping.
We wanted everything about this hoodie to be top quality — from the ideas we put into it, to getting the perfect fabric, all the way down to the smallest details, we wanted to make sure that this was a garment that would stand the test of time.
We chose raglan shoulders for extra comfort and an old school look.
The side of the Apollo 1 has ribbing for extra stretch as you take it on and off. The weight of the fabric feels like a protective armor.
