Supporting Local – pt 2

Guess who’s back, back again, Judgey’s back, tell a friend, and subscribe to the blog because that’s only the right thing to do.

Last time, in the Supporting Local series (until I find a clever name for it), we talked about Beast Time Fitness. Today, our focus is Apollo Legion.

Apollo Legion made its debut last year and has pretty much taken the territory by storm. Created by jack-of-all-trades Charles Goodings Jr., A.K.A Pollo from right out of St. Croix, the clothing line features swimsuits, bodysuits, polo shirts, shorts, children’s apparel…


The list goes on. There’s even backpacks and hats too. The line is steadily growing, and it’s cost-effective. The designs are very simple, sporting only the brand’s name and logo on each article of clothing.

The man behind the brand? Pollo is a DJ, a musician, an entrepreneur and a recent graduate of the University of the Virgin Islands. He’s licensed and degreed—because excellence that’s why.

There’s two locations on St. Croix, one in East—inside Leonela Boutique across the street from the Police Station in Basin Triangle—and the other in West—across from Plaza Extra West near Janes Bridal boutique.

Not on Island? No problem, just visit www.apollolegion.com. There’s also a ton of social media sites you can follow from Snapchat to Twitter. Pick one.

I already owned an olive beanie which I bought at the Agriculture and Food Fair in 2016. I love it.

I ended 2017 by buying the swimsuit, and the shorts because 1)They were on sale for Floatopia which was held the day of the New Year—that sale extended to the 4th of January—and 2)because I recently lost damn near 12 pounds and I needed to show out for a minute.

Oh, I also wanted a nice swimsuit because I didn’t own one. So, I killed several birds with one stone, and I’m going to go back and get a hat for someone as a gift, and I also want a bodysuit and a crop top.

By the time I’m finished with this series I’m probably going to have a solid collection of local items.

By, thee, way, the damn suit had your girl looking Fuego. Can we get some more colors? I love me some black, but this shit would be clutch in white or maybe red…or olive, because I love that color. Camo would be great too. Hint Hint, wink wink.

Photo credit for the awesome photograph goes to Anduze Visuals. I might as well just hire him to be my official photographer when I’m not taking my photos myself because he NEVER lets me down.

If you haven’t gotten the chance, stop by, see if there’s anything you like and don’t waste any time. Get it. As they say, don’t be left behind.

Till next time!
