The Stronghold is THE original manufacturer of denim in City of Angels, California. Although shut down many years back, it has been revived and is pumping out some of the most authentic american jeans and other goods. You’ve gotta love a nice pair of suspenders with a pair of hammer-riveted jeans. They’re certainly not cheap, but they definitely will last you longer than 10 pairs of made in China Levi’s. Even their site screams wild west in the layout.
