Next time you're in Los Angeles, check out The Stronghold, on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach. It's a nicely curated, comfortable, spacious store with a very friendly owner and drool worthy items. The Stronghold, was the first denim brand manufactured in Los Angeles in 1895. This "reproduction" brand (but far from it, really) stays true to the workmanship, quality and aesthetic of that time.
