Getting Plugged In is WHAT IT DO Inland Empire! So just like socks go on your feet or a bat goes well with a glove, so does music and fashion. Congratulating THE PLUG on their nomination for LUE Productions 2nd Annual MY MUSIC, MY MIC Indie Artist’s Awards Show, scheduled for Saturday, October 15 in San Bernardino at the National Orange Show from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Tickets now available for $15 at The Plug.
Over the years rap, hip hop, and R&B artist have walked the red carpet in stylish clothing designed by top notch fashion designers in the game. We ‘have seen styles come and we seen have some go. Some ‘cray-cray’ and some well let’s just say okay. I am happy to highlight The Plug, a local indie clothing store located right here in the Dino.
The Plug was founded by brothers James Moreno and Jamal Moreno in 2013. Starting off making custom hats, the two brothers decided to make custom shirts to match. With both of them having a good sense of fashion it came natural. Some would ask why here in San Bernardino.
“With San Bernardino being saturated with talent it works,” James Moreno said. “San Bernardino is home; we love this place, the good and the bad, it’s still home. We wanted to shine some positive light on our city and show others we can do our own thing. Don’t nobody love us like us.”
The type of clothing that can be bought include Hometown Nativez brand, one of their best-selling and in-house brands. You can find local clothing, headwear at its finest, The IE as a whole San Bernardino and surrounding cities, up and coming street brands, hip-hop brands, and some major brands across the U.S. They also carry up and coming independent artists across The IE apparel and music.

Store hours are: closed Tuesday, Wednesday – Monday open at 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. except on Sunday’s where they close at 6 p.m. There’s no telling what you might come across at THE PLUG. So please stop in and SUPPORT! Until Next Week L’ZZZZZZ!
