Weekly Brand Spotlight | GANT Optical & Hardy Eyewear

Hardy and GANT eyeglasses offer an ideal pairing through their focus on refined sportswear that references classic design.

Founded in New Haven in 1914 by Bernard Gantmacher, GANT first made their name as a trusted brand of creative tailoring – bringing the popular button-down shirt from Europe to America on a large scale. Over time, this commitment to style and quality has been interwoven through GANT eyewear, which features round, rectangular and cat eye glasses shapes combined with keyhole bridges, and striking handmade acetates.

Moving from the East Coast to the West Coast, Hardy Eyewear takes its inspiration from the urban environment intersecting with nature. This interplay is highlighted in the rich colours and patterns that include timber, moss, and granite. Hardy glasses frames are made with handmade acetate and German titanium hinges, with browline styles that combine acetate and stainless steel.
