If you dig retro-style sun shields but the idea of sporting anything preworn on your face grosses you out, head to this friendly neighborhood shop, which offers roughly 6,000 pristine vintage frames spanning from the ’60s to the ’80s, from labels like Balenciaga and Dior. You won’t find Oakleys here—owners Jordan Silver and Erik Sacher refuse to sell licensed brands—but you can pick up indie European designers such as London’s Anglo American, plus the duo’s own in-houseline ($295--$1,200).
