These awesome aviators have 100% UV rose gradient lenses and a burgundy and gold colored frame. They're small, as far as most aviators go, which makes them nice for small headed adults or really cool/wealthy babies. The cost is $250. Call or email us to order via credit card.

Nate just scooped these handsome, dusty beige, vintage 1960's specs and boy are they swell! He told us his profession demanded a high performance anti-reflective coating so we used a Crizal Alize coating. It's a tough to scratch coating which repels dust, water and smudges. Nate= winning. You too can win like Nate.
Yes, this is the continuation of our super car frames. Do you have the car to match? These vintage Italian made Alfa Romeo shades are 100% UV and a tasteful copper brown color. They're $400 and come with this absurd faux-wood case. Call or email us to order via credit card.

The Lonely Island stopped by GB to hang out, try on specs and shoot a snippet of their new video of luxurious musics. From left to right is Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Jonah Goldstein. Andy is wearing a vintage Adolfo, made in West Germany and Jorma is wearing a vintage aviator made by Playboy.

Ya know, it's really a shame that these vintage Japanese made Leupold shooting glasses don't come with THREE sets of interchangeable POLARIZED lenses in yellow, green and gray and the original case..... Oh wait.... They DO. Blammo. The cost is $430. Call or email us to order via credit card.
James is a meeeeean son of a gun. No, actually he's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet which is why we decided to have his photo taken, scowling, with a 1920's speak-easy bouncer feel to it. His vintage specs, with anti-glare coating, that he picked up fit perfect whether he smiles or gives the stink eye.

These handsome little finds are made by Avon. They have an image of a 1930's Rolls Royce that has the Driver's area un-roofed and separated from the passenger's quarters. Wowsers! The Rolls Royce company really wanted to let the working class know where they stand! (or sit) The cuff links have the original box and the cost is $100. Call or email us to order via credit card.
Nate is happy because he looks super cool in his 1960's specs. Actually, he and I were both smiling at my expense because I have a crappy 1990's style cell phone, which I referenced just as I was taking this pic. That's ok. Soon my phone will be vintage, like Nate's glasses.

Brothers, Lee and Thomas, stopped by GB to snag a couple of pairs of glasses and I had to snap this pic. In case you haven't noticed, we at GB admire the leisurely, relaxationy, vacationy look of walking around without socks. It's just swell.

This Italian brand Filos was one of the brands worn by Michael Caine in the 1960's. This particular frame has G-15 gray green 100% UV lenses inserted and comes with an EXTRA pair of caramel brown gradient lenses. That's like having two for the price of one! (Sort of) The cost is only $250. Call or email us to order and YES, we accept credit cards.

Actually, Christopher didn't have to pay for his cowboyhat, so he didn't shoplift it. He got it free with his 1960's Prison Frame purchase. The reason Christopher looks cool in his new glasses and hat is because he IS cool. You and yer fellers can be cool too! Bring yer posse over to Gentlemen's Breakfast next time you're in Echo Park.
