Eyewear with a distinct vintage feel and contemporary twist.
Black Eyewear is the creation of optician and lifelong jazz devotee, Robert Roope. The collection is inspired by the eyewear worn by jazz musicians of the 1950s. The designs pay homage to the likes of Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane.
Black Eyewear's collection consist of over one hundred models, each one individually embracing the one of a kind expressions of these artists. The wondrous color palette includes blonde, grey mottle, tiger brown, tiger pink, and vivid colors such as bright yellow, mint green, and turquoise.
All of their frames come with a wide variety of different colors to choose from ensuring each individual finds their perfect pair. Check out some of the epic new styles for men below!
