The Best Eyewear Boutiques in America

Fabulous Fanny's
This diminutive East Village store makes up for its size with a knowledgeable staff and affordable vintage frames that rarely top $300.
335 E. 9th St., New York City

Jack's Eyewear
Proprietor Jack Bernstein's central-L.A. boutique is packed with high-end, high-priced specs (we're talking five digits) from classic brands like Porsche and the hip-hop-endorsed Alpina.
120 S. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles

This downtown-Seattle shop carries a global array of avant-garde brands, including Germany's Wissing and Denmark's Fleye, whose glasses are practically art pieces.
2025 1st Ave., Seattle
