Lone Flag is a hip men's clothing shop in Encinitas. Located right outside of sunny San Diego, they stock denim, casual-wear, and essentials in their contemporary digs. Just feet from the beach, SoundCuts barber chairs on premise, and a denim repair station — they are a one-stop shop for any man with a SoCal state of mind.

With a flag comes a dedicated allegiance to honoring what the hoisted banner represents. And in the case of this Lone Flag flying just north of San Diego, it signifies the notion that fit, form, and function reign supreme over the Southern California land and far beyond. When walking in the brick-and-mortar shop along the S Coast Highway, you instantly become enthused with the amount of layers that the Lone Flag exhibits. Here, a nation of the best men’s brands available have joined forces. Names like Rogue Territory, Bradley Mountain, and 3sixteen are just a few displayed meticulously in the sharp aesthetic of the space — all within a walk to the surf.
Fit is extremely important here. With a repair station, chain stitching, single-needle hem service, and other denim repairs are offered daily.
The inside is a visual masterpiece: a diverse amount of strong denim collides with outerwear and tees while shelves of leather goods, hats, and packs break up the synchronization of hangers. Just when a vibrant color might tease your attention away from a table of accessories, you’re quickly brought back to the bold tandem of black and white, the major color tone of the Lone Flag symbol, boldly floating on a wall illuminated by light from behind.
