Alan is a rounded rectangular bookish frame. Inspired from the late 1950's. The simple shape makes it an effective piece. Less is more.
Handmade in Europe since 2004 using recycled vinyl.
The unmistakable vinyl record exterior lends strength and durability and makes every Vinylize unique. Built to last and suitable for fitting with optical lenses or ready to wear as sunglasses, these exclusive designs combine premium elegance with a genuine piece of music history. Simple and functional, the Italian hinges are time-tested and true.
Vinylize is an independent brand that pioneered the production of high quality eyewear from vinyl records. Created in 2004 by Zachary Tipton, we sell to over 500 optical shops world wide.

How durable are Vinylize frames?
We have had people come back to us after 8 years requesting the same frame. Think of bulletproof glass or a composite bow, the combination of laminated materials adds strength. German TV even made a video about our production technology. Otherwise the guarantee is 2 years.
