Bespoke Shades from the Golden State

  • Caitlin Ganswindt


Just in time for the dog days of August: Garrett Leight is letting you customize your own shades.

It’s called the Mod Shop, a newly up-and-running site-within-a-site from California’s artisans of acetate. Here’s how this is gonna go down:

1. You’ll hop online. 2. Pick one of the five base frames. 3. Mull for a bit over whether you’re more of a Pink Crystal or Brandy Tortoise kind of guy. (Neither? No worries. They’ve got five colors for each style.) 4. Figure out the right size for your face. 5. Then finally choose from 14 lens treatments.

Once you’re satisfied, they’ll be on their way to you in about a week.
