A classic that always feels contemporary: metal glasses are always a good choice. From iconic and retro to ground-breaking and modern, this durable and flexible material offers a special lightness, no matter the shape or style, men, women, or unisex. Each pair of metal specs frames the wearer's face while letting their individuality shine through the rims. Be it serious or playful, every model of metal eyewear has a beautiful simplicity and refined glamour.
Metal frames have appealed to such iconic notables as James Joyce, John Lennon, Gloria Steinem, and Clare Waight Keller.
WHY CHOOSE METAL GLASSES?
Whether as oversized retro Aviator sunglasses or small round spectacles, metal eyeglasses are easy to wear, and go with everything in your wardrobe. They never pull focus from your clear message, but instead filter the world for you. It's easy to fit your prescription or desired lens choice in these glasses, which are adjustable and comfortable on the nose. We carry a wide array of styles, from retro glasses to timeless vintage sunglasses that will suit every face shape and personal style. Go fashion intellectual in gold rim, or trend towards sturdy and sporty. High-quality materials keep metal frames light and elegant. Long before the titanium trend, metal specs became the optical choice of discerning customers.
