GLCO is laid back, sophisticated, and inspired by Leight’s California surroundings: the place where he was born, raised, works, lives, and loves. Timeless styles are brought to life through his discerning west coast perspective; From the colorways, such as “Champagne” with “Ocean” polarized lenses, or “Honey Blonde Tortoise” with old school “Pure Green” lenses (just to name a few) — to the frames all being named after streets in Venice CA. Even the Venice zip code “90291" is specially engraved on the core wire, a very nice touch. There is a beautiful aesthetic to the entire collection. It’s not over complicated, just a slice of classic 20th century Americana served with a modern twist. Having come from an optical background gives Leight the unique ability to perfectly execute the subtle details which makes any frame just that much better: such as the fit, proportion, and comfort. The collection also boasts some great technical features, such as German-made hinges, Japanese aged acetate, and Italian glass Barberini lenses for superb optics. Eyewear from Garrett Leight can be found at our Chinatown, West 4th shops and online now.
