    Collective Quarterly Issue 0 // Marfa, TX

    We had the fortunate opportunity to sponsor a fantastic new print publication called The Collective Quarterly, put together by our friends Jesse, Seth and Jay. The Collective Quarterly is a magazine about exploring. Each issue follows select craftspeople to an offbeat location, with the backdrop of the inaugural Issue 0 in Marfa, TX - a tiny West Texas town that is rich in modern art and architecture. They headed out with some talented and creative individuals, including our good friend/photographer/videographer extraordinaire Duncan Wolfe (who filmed our Paris elopement in 2012!). We outfitted the crew with some of our favorite Rogue Territory pieces, below are some inspiring images from the trip that capture what this magazine is all about: Exploration and Discovery. Issue 0: Marfa is available for purchase, or do yourself a favor and subscribe for a year's worth of enriching writing and imagery. WORDS // Leslie Yeung IMAGES // The Collective Quarterly

    Hand-Dyed Canvas Posters // Keep The Trade Alive: Artist Series

    For the second installment of our Keep The Trade Alive poster series, we teamed up again with designer Ben Deter to build on the concept and design from the indigo-dyed posters we released last Fall. This time, we decided to explore a new material and color, as well as introduce a new design. Much like our core fits, the Stanton and SK that change fabrics from season to season, we decided to approach the posters in the same way. Linocut Process The posters were printed using linoleum cuts. Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum is used for the relief surface. The design was cut into the linoleum surface with a V-shaped chisel, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. Dying Process A 7 oz duck canvas was used to compliment the new array of Spring goods that feature the material. It is light and thin enough to print on and easily takes on the dye. Ben created a custom dye mix to produce a beautiful antique gold color. The color plays off the hue of the camel canvas used on the new Supply Jacket, Camel Stantons and Camel RK Trousers, while referencing the fresh vibrant colors of spring. All 40 posters were cut and dyed in batches then rinsed and left to dry overnight. Printing Process The linoleum sheet was inked with a roller and then impressed onto the canvas. Each sheet of canvas was printed using a custom mix of navy oil-based ink and then allowed to dry for a week. Because each one is printed separately by hand, no two prints are alike. Using linocut and canvas together really allow for a unique, handcrafted product that looks as if it has been aged over time. A huge thank you to Ben and his friends Garret and Adam for their hard work on this project! These limited edition canvas posters are available online for $50. Each is hand-numbered and signed by Ben Deter. WORDS // Ben Deter IMAGES // Ben Deter

    Rogue Territory Spring / Summer 2014 Lookbook

    Our Spring / Summer 2014 collection is all about the color palette. All the colors are complimentary across tops and bottoms, making it easy to mix styles and colors to build multiple outfits. Also after multiple years of testing and many iterations, we're excited to introduce all new styles to the Rogue Territory line up. The Field Jacket is our interpretation of a vintage light weight hunting jacket we came across while diving for vintage clothes a couple years back.  We've made a few modifications to give it a fresh feel, like a slimmer fit, modified pocket design, a club style collar and accent bartacks. Some great additional details are the "pocket within a pocket" on the left chest and hidden phone pocket in the larger left flap pocket. Overall it's a versatile and functional piece that is perfect as your primary jacket in the cool Spring and Summer nights or even as an additional layer as the temperature drops below 50 degrees. We're introducing a new Pop-over shirt, which is a classic design with some slight design twists. Highlights include triple-needle chainstitched side seams, collar stand extension, and what has quickly become our signature chest pocket design. And of course the fabric! A beautiful textured brown chambray from Japan with a nice substantial weight to it. The first release of Spring / Summer 2014 will be available on our online store on 2.25.14 Keep eye out for the next release which will include 3 all new denim washes available in the Stanton, SK and Supply Jackets! We'll also be releasing Shorts in the 2nd drop, available sometime in March! WORDS // Karl Thoennessen IMAGES // Leslie Yeung
