Eye Q Eyewear launches Buxton Eyewear, which takes its name from the leather goods manufacturer, a brand recognized for its timeless heritage. The initial collection, consisting of eight styles, is targeted to men. Shapes are classic variations on rectangles, made primarily of metal with leather, wood and zyl accents (one frame is all zyl) and include fully rimmed and semi-rimless styles. One design has a double bridge. Several styles are equipped with spring hinges. Eye sizes range from 52mm to 56mm with bridges of 16mm to 19mm and temple lengths of 140mm, 145mm and 150mm.

“Buxton is a terrific addition for Eye Q Eyewear, expanding our brand portfolio to now include a collection with strong male and female recognition,” says John Barry, Eye Q sales and marketing director. “Our objective with the new Buxton Eyewear collection is to offer youthful styling with presbyopic friendly shapes at a great price point.”

The tagline for the collection is “timeless and inspired.”
