Made in: Los Angeles

With roots that go as far back as 1895, The Stronghold is the original Los Angeles denim brand. Although the original manufacturer closed up shop in 1949, it was revived in 2004 by Michael Paradise and Michael Cassell, who had a strong passion for making sure they got it right. You'll find reproductions of tried-and-true classics, with an eye towards authenticity rather than trends. Skinny jeans? Yeah right.
