Aristocratic style for everyone Savile Row glasses are made by Algha Works, who have been hand crafting glasses frames since 1932. Algha Works released their Savile Row eyeglasses line in 1988. This line was introduced because of different eye glass standards that were now required. The Savile Row spectacles collection are hand made frames. The frames are made of hand rolled, 14 carat gold. The Savile Row eyeglasses require 130 different processes to complete the frames. The frames are crafted by skilled artisans that are experience in the craft of hand rolling gold. All Savile Row spectacles are stamped on the bridge of the frames with 14KT RG. You will know that you have authentic Savile Row glasses when you see this marking.
The Savile Row eyeglasses are offered in three different style collections. These are Slimlite, Rimless and The Original Collection. Within each collection there are numerous styles to choose from. Savile Row eyeglasses have a very delicate and simple appearance to them. The frames are thin, yet extremely durable, since they are made from gold. Each pair of glasses is subtly different and unique.
The brand has been popularised in recent years by the Harry Potter film series; Daniel Radcliffe had several pairs of Savile Row spectacles made for the films. Other celebrities who embraced the brand include Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Audrey Hepburn, and Rihanna. Perhaps the most iconic eyewear from the brand is that worn by John Lennon, which we have stocked in store.
