The very first denim manufacturer in Los Angeles, The Stronghold was founded back in 1895 and continued to operate until its closure in 1949. Cut to 2004, when the brand is resurrected by Michael Paradise and Michael Cassell to continue the mission of providing quality dry goods for fans of the tried and true. To that end, jeans are constructed from selvedge denim for a timeless style, fit and finish, built on shuttle looms to stay true to the company’s roots. The Stronghold has now applied its expertise to the Harris Fit jean from Stussy Deluxe, featuring traditional five-pocket styling and a classic slim-straight silhouette. Look for the jeans to drop soon at Stussy chapter stores in Japan.
