GARRETT LEIGHT and BLACK OPTICAL have been friends & colleagues since the launch of GLCO in 2011. What makes this pairing successful is their shared values of eyewear and design. It was inevitable that a collaboration would happen between the emerging brands.


BLACK OPTICAL is pleased to announce two exclusive collaboration frames within the GLCO collection- the reimagined Van Buren & Wilson M. 


Gary Black and I share many of the same values with eyewear,” said Garrett Leight, founder of GLCO. “We both believe in authentic design, integrity in manufacturing, and a respect for the past balanced with continuous refinement and innovation. We really value our relationship with Black Optical and we were stoked to work with them on creating custom sunglasses worthy of their name.
