A Vancouverite and eyewear connoisseur, Jordan knows that the right frame can amplify any outfit. From thrifty finds to tailored pieces, Jordan’s style is distinctly nostalgic, with contemporary elements that propel his ensembles into the 21st century.

I can change up the energy in a look simply by changing my glasses. I love being able to do that.


Green | Playful and Preppy

Jordan lets this green pair stand out against a crisp dress shirt and green knit sweater. Amp up your every day work look by adding some playful contrast to your ensemble.

I tend to gravitate to more neutral frames, but if my wardrobe is relatively monochrome, they can definitely be the focal point.

Jordan’s Tip for the Perfect Fit


“Finding the perfect fit takes time. I’m the same way when it comes to clothes. I like to find brands that work well with my body and then choose between them. Similarly, once I find a size metric that works with my face, I stick with those dimensions and find frames that work within that.”
