Charlie's Los Angeles fittingly opened its doors on the Fourth of July. Founded by seasoned craftsman/motorcycle enthusiast Charlie Farago, the Venice menswear boutique hosts Made-in-America items from brands like Levi's, Wesco, Pendleton and more, and offers man cave vibes via an in-house pool table, a record player and—on weekends—beer.
"I stock American-made products that cater not only to craftspeople and motorcycle riders (though we do carry a wide selection of workwear and motorcycle apparel), but to all men," Farago explains. "We aim to sell to men of all occupations and tax brackets. At Charlie's, you can buy a $40 pair of Stan Ray double knee construction pants or an $840 Horsehide Perfecto jacket from Schott NYC. I am also very proud of the assortment of original art and artifacts that I have throughout the store."
Check out more snaps of the store—designed in partnership with Benjamin Phillips and Florence Tang of DTLA's Lot, Stock & Barrel—below.
Charlie's Los Angeles is open Tuesday through Friday from 12-8pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11am-7pm. There are three parking spaces available in the rear of the building.
