December isn’t exactly high season for sunglasses.

But remember: the sun never sets on cool.

Which is what you’ll be in a pair of limited-edition sunglasses no one else has.

New optical shoppe GLCO (Garrett Leight California Optical) just opened their first East Coast brick-and-mortar in Soho.
“Our SoHo store is where the world of Garrett Leight California Optical plays out in a uniquely New York context,” says founder Garrett Leight.

Ergo: the “Only in NY” collection, aka 150 pairs of handsome specs available in exactly one place.

GLCO frames are sophisticated, contemporary and of the quality that’ll make you cringe if you sit on ‘em. It happens.

Inspired by the late American poet Allen Ginsberg, the limited-edition collection features four colorways with a righteous flat-base lens like we’ve never seen before. And each of the 150 pairs produced has “Only in New York” embossed on the inside of the arm to commemorate the occasion.

‘Cause if there’s one thing we know New Yorkers love to love, it’s New York.

Get ‘em here. Now. Before they’re gone.
