You know that place where all your grandfather’s best stories took place, the shop where all his rough-necked carefree friends would meet at to spend the day? General Quarters on La Brea is exactly that kind of place, and generally speaking, this nostalgic shop is hands down one of the best things happening to men’s style in Los Angeles.
General Quarters represents a hardworking blue-collar man, and even the necklaces and bracelets are forged out of sterling silver at the hands of the owner himself.
General Quarters offers a small step back in time to when things were a bit more simple. It is dedicated to classic southern California heritage style. The shop pays tribute to those golden days, all the way from its burning Big Sur incense to the hanging retro Mobilgas sign that was pulled off a closing barn in Connecticut.
Surveying the space offers a needed retreat for men who pay close attention to important details. Here, you will find tees with exclusive Americana retro designs, piles of Rogue Territory denim, and outerwear ranging from waxed jackets to leather bombers.
General Quarters represents a hardworking blue-collar man, and even the necklaces and bracelets are forged out of sterling silver at the hands of the owner himself. With featured brands such as Filson packs and Red Wing boots, they keep it domestic. General Quarters is doing things the way they should be done, keeping you sharp in a simple, classic way.
The only hard part of General Quarters is having to leave. But know this: when you choose to head back out into the busy streets of Los Angeles, you will have a new hangout, timeless essentials, and a fresh mindset of what it feels like to be a man.
