All Brands | RetroSpecs


Founded in the back of a recreational vehicle in 1992, the story behind RetroSpecs is unlike any other brand you’ve encountered before. Drawing inspiration from post-World War I spectacle manufacturing, RetroSpecs restores antique frames from the golden-era of eyewear design and manufacture.

Gold-Filled Wire Frames Designed to Last Forever

Capturing the historical designs of the 19th and 20th centuries and combining them with the unparalleled quality available through 21st century manufacturing is no easy feat. In this way, RetroSpecs has created a truly unique line of eyewear that is both precious and unique, incorporating revolutionary design and unmatched manufacture.
