About Cutler and Gross...
Founded in 1969, British luxury eyewear brand Cutler and Gross combines the finest Italian craftsmanship with great style. Since their establishment - which dates back to fashion’s halcyon days, the brand’s signature creativity has been applied to sunglasses and optical frames with their trademark numbered designs and absence of an ostentatious logo.
In the early decades, Graham Cutler and Tony Gross’s frames relied upon their reputation being spoken about and worn within style and fashion circles. Considered bastions of iconic eyewear, Cutler and Gross designs, to this day continue to grace many of the most recognisable faces in the worlds of art, design, music and film.
Having initially created their frames by hand above the Knightsbridge shop, today Cutler and Gross produces all their glasses in a dedicated facility in Cadore, Italy, where highly skilled craftsmen take pride in preserving and developing the artisanal tradition in eyewear manufacturing. Only the highest quality of Italian acetate, lenses, rivets and accessories are used to make the company’s frames.
The importance of the artisanal creation of each pair of glasses is the essence of the brand. Each frame takes four to six weeks to produce and undergoes 42 tailored steps. The intricate process includes design, cutting, barrelling, bending, hinge insertion, polishing and quality control. Cutler and Gross craftsmen complete every step by hand.
The charm of the tradition, passion and dedication of the craftsmen is found in every pair of Cutler and Gross frames - creating a unique and timeless product.
