GLCO uses the most exclusive, highest quality materials from the best suppliers in the industry who have hundreds
of years of experience. All of our frames are designed at our studio in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles.
For our frames, we source cured acetate and high quality metals from leading suppliers in Japan, Italy, and China.
Our lenses are made of mineral glass and scratch resistant CR-39 plastic, with reflective coating and other treatments for best eye protection, clarity, and visual acuity.
Our manufacturing processes exemplify cutting edge technology, attention to detail, and skilled hand detailing.
STORES + LABS
Each of our retail locations provides a unique shopping experience, fully equipped with an optical lab staffed by licensed opticians who can help you select the right style, customize your frame and lenses, and fill your prescription in an hour.
why buy GLCO?
We're an independent eyewear brand committed to creating high quality, handmade eyewear inspired by the people, places, and stories of California.
That’s the metaphor B-Wade uses for describing the ebb and flow of his creative process. The artist-designer-DJ picked up surfing while living in Venice and likens the feeling of waiting for the next wave to waiting for artistic inspiration to find him.
The Compton Community Garden
“This ain’t no food desert. Compton has the most ideal weather for organic gardening, yet we’re still considered a food desert? How did we get here? We have the chance to change the narrative & restore balance - to heal, feed, employ ourselves, and build wealth collectively.” -Temu Asyr Bey
GLCO x ALC Launch Party

Our Holly frame is a loving homage to the 1990’s boundless love for diminutive frames.
