Pale Strider:

My cousin Dr. Nick and his wife Brooke showed up to GB again today. He was wearing one of his FIVE pairs of white slacks. FIVE.

To the MAX:

Every once in a while a big, strong, mean looking sumbitch comes into GB looking for a pair of vintage aviators. This fine gentleman, Max, isn't mean. But he's big and strong and his new aviators look great too (lucky for us).

Rose Colored Glasses:

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.

For all you Steampunks:

These dandy specs are an antique copper color and are equipped with 100% UV, G-15 colored lenses. You can wear them while aboard your hot air balloon. The cost is $250. Call or email us to order via credit card.

Nate Looks Great:

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.

Alfa Romeo Sunglasses!

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 at GB:

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.

Rich in Round:

Rich just grabbed these insaaaaaaaane 1920's round specs with his RX. It is of his scientific opinion that you should respect round, when referencing shapes. Round specs help one invent better.

Lamy Vintage Aviators:

These chrome beauties are made in France, by Lamy and they have G-15 colored lenses with 100% UV protection. The cost is $250. Call or email us to order via credit card.

It's About Time:

Yes, it's aaaaall about time. Scott stopped into GB with his lady to get this beautiful 21 jewel automatic calendar skeletonized time piece and some mustache wax to boot! He'll be a dapper dandy this weekend.

Vintage Leupold Shooting Shades:

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.

Thousand Yard Anti-Glare Stare:

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.

Salvatore Ferragamo Shades:

These Salvatore Ferragamo shades are $250, they're made in Italy and they have dark brown gradient lenses with 100% UV protection. The color of the acetate frame front is called "buffalo horn" with it's beautiful contrasting streaks of chocolate, off white and caramel. You can wear them while cruising in your vintage Alfa Romeo! Call or email us to order via credit card.

Ryan is a Big Deal:

Ryan stopped o'er to GB to grab an awesome pair of vintage Dunhill aviators and a vintage Yves Saint Laurent blazer, equipped with substitute teacher leather elbow pads. He's a big deal. One of the biggest, in fact.

This past Cowboyhat Sunday was one of the the busiest days we've ever had, thank's to all of our new friends who came out to GB. Since our promotion was such a success, we'll be having a Cowboyhat Sunday every 1st Sunday of every month, where you get a free Cowboyhat with any eyewear purchase.

Taylor in DVF:

Our pal Taylor stopped by GB today to hang out and be awesome in her prescription Diane Von Furstenberg glasses. Soooo coooool.

Vintage AVON Rolls Royce Cuff Links:

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:

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.

The Smooth Brothers:

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.

High Plains Shoplifter:

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.
