California-Style Frames Featured in Cinema and on the Streets of Hollywood

Hollywood Hills Street Scene

We received hundreds of requests for a particular frame that our customers saw being worn in recent films. We checked the industry catalogs, and realized that these frames were designed specifically for those flicks. So our undaunted staff saw the films, took notes and duplicated those frames. No one can ever say we are not responsive to what our customers seek!

Our Capistranos are a blend of the best in eyeglasses. They have a deep honey colored tortoise shell rim in a stylized oval shape, and gleaming gold plated, stainless steel temples, with the same jewelry ball tips that we reserve usually for our up-scale Signature series frames. Why not, these certainly are upscale.


Capistranos were first seen on the faces of California girls as they roamed the streets of Hollywood.

Cruising around Hollywood in your '56 T-Bird, or standing in line to buy a ticket at your local cinema, if you are wearing Capistranos shades it is not unlikely that someone will stop and ask for your autograph. Select the tint color of your choice, and let the mating- games begin!
