The Collective Quarterly

issueØ_19

Finally, The Collective Quarterly is ready for pre-order! Jay and I have been working on this project for the past year and a half, and its now ready to share with you.

The Collective is a travel + lifestyle magazine with an emphasis on how things are created, be it menswear, food, drink, etc. We like to think of it as a sort of National Geographic for a new generation. Each issue follows a small group of artists and artisans on a trip to a particular region of the country or the world. With the first issue, we’ve partnered with artists and some of our favorite American companies (including Faribault Woolen Mills and Duluth Pack) to create uncommon goods based on our trip experience.

The Coveted Man x RGT Desert Safari Shorts

_MG_4742

The Safari Short has been a staple of the Rogue Territory collection for a few seasons now.  It was originally inspired by standard issue military trousers for the infantry personnel stationed in Vietnam.  The gusseted pockets which are the defining detail of the short was pulled from a 30s work shirt chest pocket. When combined the 2 details make for a super functional and very subtle design.

_MG_4753

We wanted to incorporate something from the Texan landscape since we were taking these with us to Marfa, TX for The Collective Quarterly.  The end result was a custom pattern inspired by the traditional Navajo woven blankets that are a huge part of the mid-western culture and have been produced in Arizona, New Mexico and parts of Texas for over 200 years. To keep the clean aesthetic of the short we decided that the print was not going to be the main focus but used more as an accent. Like a colorful pocket square in a blazer, these shorts have just enough pop to add intrigue and remain classy.
