Julius Tart optics come from the heritage of the original Julius Tart, an eyewear designer and manufacturer who founded his namesake company in New York City in the 50s.

Inspired by the golden age of New York City, the brand evokes stylish elements from the 50s and 70s, radiating a certain vintage appeal with its hand-crafted approach.

In vision with the brand’s origins, Richard has stayed true to his family’s legacy by maintaining documents, materials and period-correct frames that symbolized the original allure of its beginning days.
Designed and produced in Japan with quality materials, the brand showcases a selection of sunglasses in a range of acetate colors and tones. Imbued with a genderless appeal, these frames radiate the label’s history of eyewear design with its committed quality and charming touches.
Over the years the brand’s distinctive features have been a favorite for notable style icons. Worn by the likes of Bob Dylan, James Dean and JFK, their subtle retro appeal is a cult detail for fans today.
