Many years ago when eyeglasses were actually made in America there was a company called Victory Optical. Victory Optical was founded in 1941 in Newark, New Jersey. Unfortunately due to market changes, offshore eyeglass manufacturing, Victory went the way of most other made in America Manufacturers. Today grandsons, Bill Marfuggi and John Bartolotta are replicating the optical frames and sunglasses designed by their grandfather, Vincent Salierno the founder of Victory Optical Manufacturing Co.
The updated retro styles are re-introduced from the classics looks of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. I visited the booth at Vision Expo East and it looked like true vintage eyewear. The product will be available in June of 2010. We look forward to seeing more of Victory Collection now and in the future.
