Boutique is haven for quirky glasses & vintage-styled shades.
Set right below street level, See doesn’t give the feeling of an optometrist’s office or of a large-scale chain. The name may be an acronym for “Selective Eyewear Elements,” but this upscale-seeming boutique delivers with surprisingly reasonable prices with its designer-inspired house brand. Genuine vintage glasses can run upwards of $600 at other neighborhood spots, but See’s designs pack all the same style punch for a much lower price. Expect a diverse selection of well-made acetate designs and fashion-forward looks from See’s in-house line; between limited runs and a high frame turnover, rest ensured that the fresh inventory corresponds with styles currently sweeping the boldfacer set by storm.
