The Brass Monocle

Long gone are the days of elementary school name calling – sporting glasses has evolved into the making of fabulous first impressions and true character. And finding the perfect pair turns into a treasure hunt at The Brass Monocle (806 16 Ave SW).

A shop with a keen eye for innovative design, it’s a pleasure to learn that 2015 marks their 35th anniversary (read it again: 35 years!) In honour of the occasion, they will be hosting a trunk show January 31st featuring the full theo collection accompanied by a very knowledgeable rep from this stellar Belgian brand. Theo embodies all of the Brass Monocle staples – bright colours, cool textures and intriguing shapes that act as individual art objects first and visual aids second.

With an optometrist on-site, a trip to the Brass Monocle is now a one-shop stop for your ocular necessities. The attentive and patient staff are as committed as you are to finding the right pair. And their judgment can be trusted – they’re all modeling stellar frames from past collections and share honest testimonials of pure quality.

Most importantly, ‘one of a kind’ truly means something here with one pair of each frame in stock. Sourcing from Europe, North America and Asia for 35 years, the Brass Monocle celebrates an established, iconic vision.

No doubt you’ll walk away and see 17th Ave a little differently.
