Masunaga 063 Sunglass

The latest object of fascination for me is the Masunaga 063 sunglass.  This model is available in three colors, and I am totally digging the crystal smoke color.  The gold titanium core, which is visible beneath the acetate temple is so rich looking.  Because of the crystal smoke color you can really see the coining and fine engraving work on the gold metal inside.  The lenses are tinted a gradient grey color and have an added silver mirror for a dash of mystique.  With this combination of style and colors you will feel like an international man (or woman) of mystery.   Click here to see the Masunaga 063 in our web-store Click here to view the rest of the Masunaga...

La Jolla by Zero G

It’s no secret that one of my favorite collections of eyewear on the planet is Zero G.  The collection has always really been strong in several key areas.  It is a very a clean look that is lightweight, durable, and made to be worn.

Masunaga 000 Is Cool Like Ice

“You got that hair slicked back, and those Wayfarers on, baby.”  Don Henley sang it well in his 1984 hit song “The Boys Of Summer.”  Some songs like that are timeless, just like some things in fashion are timeless.  Just take the wayfarer shape.  Everyone needs a good wayfarer sunglass in their collection, and my frame of choice is the Masunaga 000.  It is so much edgier and bolder than your father’s RayBans though, so get ready to turn some heads when you enter the party.   It is cool like ice in this limited edition matte black color with silver mirrored lenses.  Model 000 features double riveted seven barrel titanium hinges, and is made from Japanese acetate.  The model number...

Introducing Todd Rogers Eyewear

I am ecstatic to announce that we now carry Todd Rogers at the house of Hicks Brunson Eyewear. Why did I love this collection so much that I just had to bring it home from New York to Tulsa?  Let’s start with the fact that Todd is an American optician based out of Boston.  That’s point one.  His love of great design very clearly shines through in his classic, wearable shapes and fantastic acetate colors.  That’s point two.  He is very down to earth and a super nice guy to boot!  That’s point three.  I have really enjoyed getting to know him these last couple of years when we have had a chance to hang out at Vision Expo in...
