Its two-tone square frame is made from specially cured acetate, sourced in Japan and Italy, to give sturdiness. Each pair is carefully inspected and hand-adjusted before leaving the GLCO studio in Venice Beach, California.

GARRETT LEIGHT CALIFORNIA OPTICAL
Established: 2011 by Garrett Leight
If you recognize his last name in the context of eyewear, well, you're on to something (you bookworm!). Garrett Leight–son of Oliver Peoples founder Larry Leight–has branched out on his own to create a namesake optical brand that, unlike many of his contemporaries, draws inspiration from those enigmatic, eccentric personalities who command a strong style all their own. (Think Arthur Miller or Hunter S. Thompson.) Working within a vintage framework and putting his experienced, modern touch on each pair, Leight carves out an aesthetic that is instantly familiar yet undeniably individual.
