Independent, Fashion-Forward Glasses Frames

Our in-house fine eyewear lines, Erker’s 1879 and NW77th, are inspired by decades of scouring the globe for exceptional frames. We decide on a story we want to tell with a new pair of glasses. We travel to find designs that speak to our story, that inspire and innovate. Then, we craft, and can take up to two weeks to turn a sketch into a distinctive product worthy of our clients.

We regularly add to these collections in distinct seasons, with frames in styles ranging from time-tested classics to the latest trendsetters, meaning that your frames will be as unique to you as they are to the moment in time they were made.

If lenses aren’t extraordinarily strong, thin, and effective, they’re simply not good enough for us. We outfit our frames with the most state-of-the-art lenses in the industry, using market-leading tech like progressive lenses and premium add-ons such as anti-reflective coating.

Our master opticians have years of experience customizing our eyewear to our clients, and can fit your frames with lenses based on your optical, lifestyle, and personal needs — meaning your ideal lenses are just a conversation away.
