Go on... it's good to ask!

Will they fit me?

We've stared at and studied more faces than a FBI profiler, so we reckon we know what suits most faces.

Our classic wayfarer, round and aviator styles have stood the test of time.

Happy fit
9/10 times our frames fit & suit. The frames can be adjusted easily.

Quality assured

The most awarded eyewear in Australia
Our frames have been awarded for quality & design including 'Best in Class' at the Int. Good Design Awards judged by 50 leading industry experts. Previous winners include Tesla and Dyson - not bad eh?!

German engineered lenses
Our lenses are made by Carl Zeiss Vision, the experts in optical clarity & protection since 1846! Ask Dad about his binoculars - same lens company!

8-step inspection
We make our frames in Sydney and then put each pair through an 8 step inspection process.

Clever repairs
Our modular system of five parts means you can repair your frames forever in seconds without the use of any tools. Genius!

Are the lenses any good?

Did you know your eyes are 10x more sensitive to UV than your skin?

Cheap sunnies = cheap lenses = damaged eyeballs.

Not ours! You'd have to spend north of $350 to get the same quality lenses. We only use the very best lens manufacturer.

Our German lens partner, Carl Zeiss Vision, is the 'Top Gun' of lens making. They make all our reader, prescription and sun lenses.

Engineered optical perfection & peace of mind your eyes are fully protected.

All lenses are UV400 and offer 100% protection.

What if I don't like them?

We get that glasses are personal and some things just aren't meant to be!

Are you really sustainable?

We'd like to think so. The word 'sustainable' is over used and confusing. This is our version of sustainable.

100% recycled frames
We make and control the manufacturing of our frames in Sydney to make sure no one nor the planet is harmed. And no cheap labour!

End of life
We take back broken parts and entire frames to be recycled. Please email us and we’ll give you the free Reply Paid address to send them to.

Less CO2
Because we use only 100% recycled plastic in our frames, we use 70-75% less CO2 in our manufacturing than almost all other brands who use virgin materials (brand new plastic/ bioacetate).

Less waste
Our manufacturing process is zero waste. Every piece of our off-cut plastic finds a new home.

Less energy
Because we've reengineered the frame, we use less energy in our production. We make a frame in 90 seconds instead of the typical 100 hours.

Sunnies made by the sun
Our manufacturing partner has installed some serious solar panels on the factory roof. We only runs our frame making machines in the day to take advantage of this renewable power. Good thing the suns always shining in Sydney!

Lenses
Our lenses are manufactured by Carl Zeiss Vision in Hong Kong. We cut and fit our lenses at Zeiss in Adelaide.

Box, case & cloth
All are made from certified 100% recycled materials in our certified factories in China (via our local agent in Sydney).

Plastic removal
Through Plastic Bank, we prevent plastic waste from reaching the ocean. The process 100% traceable and certified. Each pair sold stops 0.5kg (equiv. to 25 plastic bottles)

Carbon removal
We lock away 10kg of CO2 through C2Zero who uses Mastercard Blockchain.

Delivery
We use compostable mailing satchels that you can bury in your garden and we use Australia Post's carbon neutral postal service.
