Garrett Leight California Optical Kinney eyeglasses and sunglasses


Simply put, it’s a great time to be an eyewear enthusiast, especially if you have a thing for classic California style. Whether you are a Hollywood type looking for some shades to put a little distance between yourself and your adoring public, a fashion rebel at the corners of Fairfax and Melrose, or a mixed media artist from Venice who wants to buck the trends, sunglasses have evolved from functional accessory to sartorial must-have.

Since its launch in 2010, our Kinney frame has become an essential part of our brand story, and our customers’ lives (not to mention their Instagram fits.) The reason is pretty simple, these semi-square shaped glasses look great with everything. Perfectly proportioned and elegant to the core, The Kinney is as democratic as it is stylish.

Thanks to its curvy lines and classic keyhole bridge, it is flattering on both men and women. It comes in a range of colors and sizes, from the two variants of our standard Rx and Sun models, all the way up to our new oversized 12mm acetate X version.

No matter where you are headed, a Kinney frame is the one thing you can always add before leaving the house to complete your look, no rules required. It’s the California way.
