Once upon a time most of the eyewear was made in the USA. Today you can count on one hand the number of eyewear company manufacturing eyewear in the USA. Victory Optical, founded in 1941 has released the first of their MADE IN USA sunglasses. This project has been a year in the making and styled from their vintage collection of the 1950’s and 1960’s. We are loving it, finding the styling and colors to be fantastic!

Style 333 is a classic cat eye shape in layered acetate. Available in soft opalesence colors backlit with crystal.

Chunky and rectangular, Style 559 is modeled after the Victory Suntimer collection. Available in black and tortoise, but we love the Crystal Amber and the Teal. They really set you apart.

  1. I am designing, but not making anything…yet. All designs so far have been bought by a factory in Turkey(??).

    There is also a small factory in Chicago and a new sunglass factory starting in Florida.

    What ever happened to Universal/Univis??

  2. Europa bought Frieze that was making frames in the USA.. I am wearing one. Think they will help it grow,. Good news about Shuron and ArtCraft. There are other Made in USA frames, some that are wood, another Spectacles in NY and another in NY. Plus aren’t you designing too?

  3. There are going to be more Made In The USA frames in the near future. Shuron and Art Craft both will be bringing more of theirs back to the US and Europa is bringing out a Made In US collection. Also more from the tiny semi-custom makers.
