Rogue Territory is about exploration.

RGT is a global brand focused on handcrafted quality denim goods and apparel for a discerning customer who appreciates subtle design details, impeccable fit, and a modern interpretation of classic garments.


Rogue Territory is co-owned by Karl Thoennessen and Leslie Yeung, and began in 2008 as a custom denim workshop, located within American Rag’s World Denim Bar in Los Angeles, and offered fully bespoke one-of-a-kind denim pieces to a select clientele.

In Fall of 2009, we stopped making custom jeans to focus on ready-to-wear, and launched our first capsule collection in American Rag, consisting of 3 limited edition styles: the “Dean” (later to become our best-selling “Stanton” fit), the “SK” and the “Standard Issue”, a vintage inspired jean. From there, our collection has grown to include trousers, work shirts, jackets, shirts, and accessories.

Keep The Trade Alive

Through collaborations and exclusive releases with friends and artists, we strive to bring an awareness to those who take pride in perfecting their trade. Keep The Trade Alive is our way of featuring talented craftsmen and women who inspire us through their passion and dedication to their creative fields.
