A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to have our good friend Karl of Rogue Territory fly in from L.A. for the sixth installment of our Meet The Maker series. At the shop, Karl released two items exclusive to Need Supply Co., the Drake Camo Ar-G Trouser and work shirt. Amongst the festivities, we sat down with the maker of Rogue Territory to find out why he likes thinking outside the box.
“I like doing a full camo get up because…it’s fun.”
“…I get so much just from the fabric. Honestly, it’s almost like I have to let the fabric speak to me, as lame as that sounds. I’ll find a fabric, I’ll sit on it, I’ll carry it in my pocket, I’ll touch it and I’ll look at it, and think about the color, and then it will all of a sudden hit me. And I’ll be like, “Yes, I’m making a jacket out of that.”
“This is a labor of love, and it’s a passion, and it’s what excites us.”
We had a great weekend with Karl and his lovely wife, Leslie. Thanks for everyone who came out to the event and supports collaborations and hard work like this.
All of Rogue Territory’s clothing is made in the USA by hand with love, time, and passion. They are built with an obsession to detail in Los Angeles, while they pay tribute to American manufacturers of the early 20th century.
Keep the trade alive.
