Garrett Leight California Optical - Spectacle Frames

“Garrett Light (the man) is the founder, creative drive, and dominant designer behind the GLCO brand which naturally bearing his name.

Garrett comes from a sound pedigree of spectacle design, being the son of Larry Leight – the Founder of Oliver Peoples – classical spectacle and sunglass frame design is intrinsic to his spectacle design.

...

Garrett Leight California Optical is made with the finest and most resilient materials. Their quality and attention to detail is self-evident upon first touching and wearing their frames.

Fitting Garett’s glasses in our Potts Point Optometry Practice, we can attest to this quality. Indeed, many of our team have a pair in regular rotation.

Most of our patients for whom we have fitted prescription Garret Leight glasses wear them for several years. Should their script change, the quality of the frames are such that we easily replace their lenses in their existing frame. Further, the timeless nature of Garrett Leight glasses mean that it is never a concern that in future years your spectacles or Garret sunglasses will look dated. They will be as ‘in’ several years from now.

Simply put, a prescription Garret optical frame is not meant to be discarded should your script change – but complement your face and lifestyle no matter how the latter changes throughout your eyewear’s lifespan.

The Garrett optical frame and sunglass is one of the most popular styles chosen by our patients at Macleay Optics. The Kinney is a cellulose acetate frame which offers both a simple and sophisticated silhouette and is designed to suit everyone. If I had to pick the secret to its popularity, it is the Kinney’s rectangular base which gently rounds in the bottom edges, effectively meaning that the overall frame is neither round nor square; therefore, often amounting to the perfect complement to a range of face shapes. Of course, the fact that the Kinney is available in two sizes and ten different colours and adorned by a comfortable keyhole bridge to sit securely on a range of nose shapes only helps. Be your face round, oval, square, rectangle, or heart shaped, changes are, the Garrett Leight sunglasses frame or Garret optical frame will suit you.

However, if you wish to have a Garret optical frame shape which more directly contrasts with your face shape then the combination square and round Kinney, (a choice our team often endorses), the Garrett Leight Brooks is an excellent choice for those whose faces tend towards a rounder profile and the Garrett Leight Hampton or Clune for those with more rectangular features.

The Brooks has been a core part of the Garret Leight glasses collection since Garett debuted the brand, evincing the ongoing popularity and timeless aesthetic of its square-shaped silhouette, classical proportions, and keyhole nose bridge.

The Clune is, despite being a more recent addition to the range, a truly classic round acetate, which from an optical perspective, often proves an excellent choice for high minus prescriptions.

In the last couple of years, Larry and Garrett have joined forces to collaborate on the Mr. Leight range of designer optical frames and sunglasses. On the premise that the creation of iconic and impeccable eyewear is their lifelong pursuit, the Mr. Leight range are handcrafted in Japan by artisans unrivalled in their craft, designing beautiful end products which have built the brand from the beginning and will continue to do so till the end.

A wide range of Garrett Leight sunglasses and Garret optical frames, whether a prescription lens by Zeiss, Hoya, Essilor, Rodenstock, or Younger Optics or unscripted are available at Macleay Optics, Potts Point, Sydney.”
