Located in the Venice area and brimming with positive vibes, the Stronghold is an updated dry goods store that sells vintage clothing and limited-edition items. Weathered brick walls, hardwood floors, and exposed ceiling beams lend a Dustbowl-era rusticity to the shop, and the merchandise—leather work gloves, Stetson hats, pocket knives—recalls a time when fashion and function were one and the same. Of course, the denim is the hottest commodity here by far, and no wonder: Stronghold Jeans were the very first manufactured in Los Angeles (they started in 1895), and today's selvedge denim reproductions emulate the craftsmanship of that era with a healthy injection of modern style, fit, and feel.
