Mark McNairy x Garrett Leight

By garrett

It has finally arrived!!!

We are very happy to announce the launch of the new Mark McNairy Eyewear line.

Mark has decided to jump into the optical industry and has chosen to work with us here at GLCO to help him create character defining, quality eyewear - all with an injection of McNairy's unique DNA.

The designs draw inspiration from classic American characters throughout time.

As Mark puts it, "We looked back at the inconspicuous weirdos, maniacs, creeps, and people that don’t give a damn what anyone thinks. People like Aristotle Onasis, Charles Bukowski, Mickey Rourke, Michael Caine, Peter Falk, Allen Ginsberg, Groucho Marx."

The collection features a variety of both metal and acetate frames. The two metal frames will be branded as Mark McNairy and are made in Japan.

The third frame is a Made in America acetate frame that is a collaborative effort stamped with both Mark McNairy and Garrett Leight branding.

Both frames will retail for $425.00 and will be available for purchase starting November 2012. You can find them at Opening Ceremony, Colette Paris, and of course at our flagship store on Abbot Kinney Blvd.

Also , big thanks from all of us here at GLCO to GQ and Hypebeast for blogging about the release.
