Cutler and Gross Sunglasses for Spring 2009


I’d like to take this time to introduce one of my favourite new brands and one you should keep your eye on for 2009, Cutler and Gross.   

I’d heard about them before but hadn’t had the chance to really look into them until lately, when people kept asking me about the style of Dominic Greene in the latest Bond film, Quantum of Solace.  Someone identified them as Cutler and Gross 0425 Brown Stripe.  So I contacted them to see what is going to be available for 2009 and I was blown away by what they sent me.  They scream hand crafted vintage and I need to get myself a pair of them.  Adding to their appeal, they now have a deal with Carl Zeiss, so all of the lenses are now made by the famous German company.  The following are just a few select models.  There are literally tons of great models and I’ll get to more later on.


Style - 0915 Brass Chrome

Style - 0886 Black Dark Turtle

Style - 0880 Black Dark Turtle


The range is inspired by Grace Kelly and her relationship and marriage with Prince Rainer, when the two spent time on the water, exploring the Mediterranean and being glamorous.  This feeling is reflected not only in the vintage styling of the sunglasses, but also the colors and the shapes.  You can really feel that the concept came together even though each pair has its own feel.  

Check the Cutler and Gross website for more information and locations.

I can't believe I didn't know about Cutler and Gross until a couple weeks ago. I freakin' love the classic look and feel of their designs, 'cause you know they'll age well. Hence... timeless, I guess. >_>

BTW, I don't know if you're aware of them yet, but I think you'd really dig Benjamin sunglasses. Go to www.benjamineyewear.com and let me know what you think.

Hey Mike,


I just checked out the Benjamin eyewear site and it is very cool. Some of them really have the feel that Cutler and Gross has, but I've never seen anything like the way they fix the lenses to the frames. I'm going to have to look into it more. Thanks for the info.

I just purchased a pair from their spring collection! I love how incredibly bold the lines are. Unfortunately, it is impossible to find the full model list...

Hello John,

Yes, they are hard to find, anywhere. I've been told that a lot of the models are only available at their flagship store, so you would have to fly to London.
