Austin Reed glasses were established in the year 2000, 100 years after the first Austin Reed menswear shop was opened in London in 1900. A distinctly British brand, it has dressed notable celebrities such as The Beatles, Winston Churchill, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. The 1990's saw Royal Warrants awarded to the brand by the Prince of Wales and Queen Elizabeth II.
Having moved its store to Regent Street in London back in 1911, 2011 heralded a move to a fabulous iconic building for its flagship store, just a few meters away, still situated in Regent Street, a famous shopping street of London.
Austin Reed glasses draw their inspiration from this rich British heritage - from the fabric inspired features engraved by lasers onto the outer sides of the frames to the British flag plaques found on the tips of the sides. At an affordable price and with the experience and expertise of more than a century of design, Austin Reed glasses are a great choice for those wanting a sophisticated and cool British look.
