Description

Stop by Shopgate's take on Oktoberfest, Apptoberfest. We've tapped into our German roots to feature craft beer, local fare and an evening of networking on the state of retail and mobile commerce. Come listen, join in the talks, introduce yourself and ask questions. We're all eager to share advice, find common pain points and learn from one another. The topic of discussion will be "Preparing for the holiday season and maintaining that momentum throughout 2018." Don't miss out!

ROGUEAMERICAN prints its designs on premium, MADE IN THE USA, custom hand distressed/vintage dyed T-shirts, which give them that one of a kind look and feel. We take extreme pride in creating custom designs synonymous with warrior history, pride, culture and ethos. Vitality, War, Life and Death are commonly found in our designs, symbolic of the dangerous environments and challenges many of our customers face each day. Labeled as “rogue or of rebellious attitude”, due to the lifestyle we chose to live and the dangerous environments we operate, we embrace this stigma. We don’t care what the masses think or say; we care most about those closest to our left and right.
