Julius Tart Optical Eyeglasses
A Family Legacy, Rediscovered
Julius Tart eyeglasses create a contemporary edge for everyday elegance.
Big City Origins
Founded in the post-war days of 1948 in New York City, Julius Tart eyewear created strong silhouettes with elegant elements and materials. Now, Tart’s nephew and sole successor of the company, Richard Tart, pays tribute to his family’s heritage with reimagined collections for contemporary wearers.
Evolving from the Past
Using the same documents, plans and vision his uncle had for the company, Tart gives strength to the past by keeping the quality craftsmanship that made the brand popular in the 50s and 60s. Worn by noteworthy figures of the time from JFK to Bob Dylan, this brand’s collections radiate a special charm.
Now produced in Japan with quality acetate and titanium structures, the brand’s traditional approach to production recalls Mr. Tart’s original vision to deliver long-lasting, quality designs. Taking the time to deliver beautiful craftsmanship, the brand’s limited collections and releases promise perfection with every pair.
Notable aesthetics come in the form of thick, vintage-inspired rims with angled edges for a clean approach to everyday eyewear style. Approaching the past with an eye for the future, the brand may have traditional elements, but they also prove to be innovators in design by using mixed materials and bold, statement color combinations.
