Threads of Apollo

Odysseus | Bomber Jacket

$200

Odysseus was a legendary hero and king of Ithaca. He played an influential role in the Trojan War as a strategist and adviser for the Greeks. He was the brains behind the Trojan Horse which led to the defeat of the Trojans. After the war, however, Odysseus went through hell to return to Ithaca and his family. The journey lasted 10 years. His whole crew, except one on his ship, were eaten by a cannibalistic tribe, the Laestrygonians. He endured escaping mythic monsters like the Sirens of Scylla and Charybdis. For 7 of those 10 years, Odysseus was held captive by the nymph Calypso, who had fallen in love with him. She kept Odysseus on her island Ogygia, using her enchanting singing, trying to get him to forget about his wife, Penelope. He never did. He broke free of the spell and eventually returned home to his wife, as a hero.


A sleek, minimalist design, our take on the bomber jacket is perfect for an evening out, whether it be chilling with the guys, on a date or hitting the club. With its ribbed collar and cuffs, ribbed elastic waist, YKK zippers and slim design, this jacket will make a statement without being loud. The threads of this jacket are imbued with Odysseus’ essence. Odysseus was the definition of never give up. Despite hardships we can’t even comprehend, he overcame them with extreme perseverance. Let this jacket be a reminder that, whatever your hopes and dreams are, you will reach them if you never give up. Put all that you have into reaching your own Ithaca. You won’t regret it.
