Designed in NYC
“Upending a boom in fabulous eyewear, New York-based Vint and York makes foppish frames inspired by the 1920s. Citing the rebelliousness of a flapper girl with her rolled-down stockings, the downturned brim of a felt fedora or the spire of the Chrysler Building, the brand is out to make new icons.”

Welcome to Vint & York | Home of the Modern Nostalgic
Founded in 2012, Vint & York is a New York based eyewear brand born of the desire to meld the essence of nostalgia, with contemporary, classic design.
Our initial inspiration came from the bygone era of the 1920s ~ a time when artistic self expression was truly celebrated across all mediums of fashion and art.
We took that vintage feel and reimagined it into modern, stylish frames that are at once playful, timeless and coveted.
Vint & York views eyewear as a personal introspective, if you will, into how we choose to manifest self expression.
Our vibrant colors, and unique shapes and styles reflect a desire to break out of the 'see of same' into something a bit more extraordinary.
We are proud of the high quality craftsmanship that goes into every pair of glasses, and believe it should be offered to everyone at a price that is fair - not indulgent.
Our collections are designed proudly right here in NYC and are available online or at our Brick and Mortar store in Soho.
It's not only how we see the world, but how we choose to be seen in it.
