Store Visit: Iron & Resin Garage
Earlier this year I was contacted by the publicist for Iron & Resin, a label out of Ventura, CA focused on surf and motorcycle-inspired clothing. The stuff looked intriguing, but I wanted to reserve writing about it until I had a chance to see the clothing firsthand. Last weekend I was in the area on a weekend getaway with my wife, so we stopped in. I have to say,the Iron & Resin Garage is one of the coolest stores I have been to.
The store is packed with Made in the USA goodness, with the Iron & Resin brand as well as other small brands that complement the lifestyle. Ventura’s Main Street is packed with thrift shops and women’s clothing stores, so it’s a welcome oasis of “guy stuff.” If you make it to Ventura, grab a coffee at Palermo across the street and be prepared to spend a good amount of time discovering the store.
I ended up buying the Penfield Colwood Quilted jacket to replace an older Hurley jacket that my wife had started giving me concerned looks whenever I wore it.
Overall, the Iron & Resin Garage is definitely worth a stop if you’re taking a road trip up the coast.
