Fred Segal Eyes

Best Sunglasses Shops, September 2008
At 100 square feet, Fred Segal Eyes is about half as large as a walk-in closet, so the selection is limited. But the clientele are here for the thoughtful mix of old (Persols, Ray-Bans) and new (Barton Perreira, Salt Optics), all of which have an unadorned aesthetic. David Gonzales, who worked at the shop for 7 years before becoming an owner 11 years ago, is particularly good at identifying the frames to best complement the shape of your face. On the rare occasion when he can’t find ones that work, he’ll call when they come in.
