The Tortoiseshell and the Hare

The epitome of L.A. cool, eyewear line Saint Rita Parlor arrives in Houston.

Remember when the only thing you wanted more than braces and glasses was a cast on your arm?

You're all grown up now, so you can treat your vision with a sophisticated pair of frames from L.A.-based Saint Rita Parlor, carried locally by Manready Mercantile. Rocked by both male and female celebs, the brand is known for their precision and the high-grade parts from Japan and Germany that go into each made-by-hand pair. Founder Neil Bardon is behind the brand, named for his grandmother and you'll spot a tattoo of her hand on his arm. Each embossed leather case comes with a paisley pocket square that can be used to clean the lenses - the current collection is a nod to Midcentury mod.
