American-made clothing carries with it a tangible level of craftsmanship, pride, and care. They’re not rugged for the sake of being rugged; they’re made to weather the elements and stand the test of time. Two particular standouts in the American garment space are Wrangler and Roark, who have both garnered international acclaim for their stellar craftsmanship and pursuit of excellence. Given their respective followings and reputations, it’s only natural for them to have teamed up to make a killer limited collection of clothes.
The Wrangler x Roark Out of Range Collection includes vintage-inspired chore jackets, a raw button-up denim shirt, a twill flannel button-up shirt, premium tees, and high-quality denim, all Made in the USA. It was important to both companies that the materials sourced for the collection, from high-quality denim to the waxed canvas and wool blended flannels, were as authentic to the country as the Western spirit that inspired it. Aesthetically speaking, the Out of Range Collection is a true marriage of Roark’s and Wrangler’s styles. It provides the rugged toughness that has made Wrangler the iconic brand it is without conceding Roark’s modern, stylish sensibilities. To test the durability of the Out of Range Collection’s clothes, Roark employed a multi-faceted crew of surfers, adventurers, and ranchers to the remote backwoods of New Mexico along the historic Continental Divide Trail. For more than a week, the Roark crew explored the off-grid trails of New Mexico by way of horseback and dirt bikes to connect with the iconic landmark.
The Wrangler x Roark Out of Range Collection is the first collaboration of the two clothing standouts, and all of the purpose-made garments in the collection are as stylish as they are versatile and long-lasting. You can shop for the Out of Range Collection on either brand’s website, starting at $69.
