Cubitts – Modern Spectacle Makers

But I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back
And your sunglasses on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
The Boys of Summer – Don Henley

Cubitts were founded in King’s Cross, London, in 2013
Their frames are made in the traditional way, and go through fifty crafted stages of production over a period of six weeks including four separate stages of polishing to ensure a glorious lustre. Most of their frames are constructed with custom Cubitts pins that secure right through the acetate – this is called pin drilling. This process is done by hand and takes more time and skill, but means hinges can be easily maintained.
Offering a wide range of prescription lenses, including single vision lenses, higher indexes for stronger prescription, and progressives. Our sunglass offer full category 7, UV400 protection, including polarised lenses and Zeiss mirrors.
At Loire we are here looking at sunglasses and you have to say you’re going to have to go a long way to find any as good as this.
So forget about all that modern Ray Ban stuff and buy from a British company, eh?
