The Brass Monocle was conceived in 1980 as the brainchild of Garry Hapton.

Garry’s vision was to bring fun and fashion into a staid industry and make eyewear funky as well as functional. The Brass Monocle remains true to this concept today through our continued search to find the most innovative, iconic and eye-catching frames and sunglasses from Europe, North America and Asia. We combine these frames with our superior quality lenses and knowledgeable staff to give you a total eyewear experience that is second-to-none. We’d love to meet you!
