We are constantly looking for independent frame companies with pizazz and flair to their designs. Most brand name frames with which you are probably familiar are no longer hand made with high quality materials. Most are owned by one company, and now made in China in the same factories, each brand getting whatever logo slapped on when they're finished. They have lost the qualities that make them unique.
One such independent brand is State Optical Co., a first-of-its-kind brand of luxury American eyewear proudly being manufactured in Chicago, USA. As such, we celebrate the quality, character, and individual style that make up their handcrafted frames – like the people who wear them – so genuinely authentic, appealing, inspiring and original.
