Isolated peoples are responsible for many stunning and induplicable artisan creations, from feudal Japan's samurai blades, to Aboriginal didgeridoos. Check out gear from a mysterious, far-off land known only as "Maine": Rogues Gallery.
Rogue's just fired up their new web store, finally giving you a comprehensive spot to grab the finest duds ever to come out of Portland, ME (where Trailblazers end up when they're extra high). Playing off the state's seafaring heritage, most of the line's at least subtly nautical-themed, from sailboat-/steering wheel-emblazoned sweaters, to anchor-dotted canvas shorts, to squid-covered tees -- wear the XXL, and strike fear in the heart of your sea captain buddies. In addition to a smattering of solid/striped polos, buttondowns, jackets, and the host of tees, other highlights include a sleeveless hoody lined w/ signal-flags; an anchor-covered pocketed polo; and the zippered-cuff Squadron sweatpants, whose off-color, double-thick waistband is sturdy enough to withstand an exclusive diet of Long John Silver's new Buttered Lobster Bites.
The shop's also offering rotating-monthly web exclusives; right now, it's two tees (one picturing various nautical knots), and four faux-vintage, patch-covered all-black mesh caps -- very cool, but by even vaguely reminding people of the faux-trucker-hat craze, you run the risk of becoming an isolated people yourself.
