Anglo American Optical Frames and Sunglasses
A British brand with more pedigree than all the Queen’s corgis combined! Vintage Anglo American frames are amongst the finest eyewear ever made. What makes them so glorious? Well, it helps that they were hand made in the UK by highly experienced frame manufacturers that spent their lives refining the art of glasses frames.
Their popularity amongst vintage eyewear lovers can also be attributed to the outrageous frame collections they put out on limited release in the 1980s. With nothing out of bounds as inspiration - from tennis racquets to jesters’ hats, opera houses and bats - these statement vintage frames are now highly sought after.
We fitted a whole host of our vintage Anglo American frames with modern UV lenses to create never seen before sunglasses. Combining the best of British eyewear craftsmanship with modern Italian lenses to make a little piece of eyewear heaven for you to buy online. Our collection of the 70s, 80s and early 90s Anglo American optical frames is the largest on the planet and we are always on the hunt for more of these iconic vintage frames.
Frames this good were bound to make a splash in Hollywood at some point. Anglo American Optical frames were the frames worn by Christopher Reeves as Clark Kent in Super Man and also by Dianne Keaton. Anglos, as they are affectionately called, have also been seen on Elton John, Woody Allen and of course Dame Edna Everage!
