Cutler and Gross Bespoke

Situated on a nondescript Knightsbridge back street, the tiny Cutler and Gross flagship store has been doing a roaring trade in handmade opticals for the past four decades. Famed for kitting out the likes of Tinie Tempah, Elton John and our very own Uncle Dysfunctional, AA Gill, with high-quality specs, C&G has just launched its new bespoke service.

On the store’s top floor, the private room (known as The Museum) has been decked with a range of Italian acetate frames in every conceivable colour, a variety of lenses and styles from the Cutler and Gross archive and a bar where you can create your own unique pair.

With frames from £579, the service is not cheap — but you are paying for glasses polished by hand with olive oil. That’s right, olive oil. cutlerandgross.com
