Cutler and Gross Opens in Toronto

Cutler and Gross, a UK based one-brand optical destination, has officially opened its doors in North America in Toronto's Yorkville area. Forget the boring and drab, these frames are anything but.

Cutler and Gross carries both glasses and sunglasses in huge array of colours and styles. Some styles have a bit more sparkle and shine, while others are more tame. But there is surely something for everyone. You can even have a touch of fun and channel your inner: 1950's glamour; 1960's Mad Men; 1960's John Lennon, which may (or may not) include coloured lenses; or your 1980's Top Gun.

Aside from the fact that Cutler and Gross makes extremely fashionable lenses (some of which are  fashion collaborations), they also strive for quality. Their frames are made from sheets of acetate. Every hole is drilled and pins and hinges are screwed in by hand. If you see their frames, you'll notice that they have slightly raw edges, which gives them a unique hand-finished quality.

 "We want to share with Torontonians our 40 years of eyewear expertise and personalized approach of investing in a pair of quality eyewear frames, which are a key fashion accessory statement. When customers come into our Cutler and Gross store, we want them to experience as so many of our clients have over the years, the excited-anticipation of receiveing their hand-made pair of eyewear.

This process can take approximately 4-6 weeks from when the Cutler & Gross stylist helps with the personalized style selection and fits the glass frames on the customer to sending the custom eyewear order to the Cutler and Glass manufacturing facility in Italy. We ensure that all the Cutler and Gross designs receive our personal stamp of approval, " states Marie Wilkinson, Head of Design for Cutler & Gross.

If you're on the search for a pair of fun and unique new frames, this is the spot for you. Their frames start at $470 and you can find their flagship store at 84 Yorkville Avenue. To browse their full selection of frames, go to
