MALE CALL

Ogi Eyewear launches Evo-Tec, a sophisticated eyewear collection for the modern male.

The Evo-Tec collection debuts with five styles, each available in four colorations.

INSIGHT

While running a Minneapolis retail optical shop, David Spencer saw a growing demand for small frames that were not only finely crafted, but also affordable. After an unfruitful search for a collection to fit this need, Spencer decided to fill it himself. In 1997 he launched Ogi’s first eyewear collection consisting of 15 styles, which combined small, refined shapes with bright colors. As Ogi’s business expanded, so did the size of the frames and number of styles being released each year. One of Ogi’s key philosophies from day one has been a constant release of new products. “Everyone is always looking for something new. Ogi never disappoints,” Spencer says.
