McClintock is different to the average opticians, we source beautiful hand made eyewear. Our exclusive spectacles and sunglasses are from some of the greatest innovators of the glasses world.
Hand made frames are very special things. They have a tactile quality that is impossible to achieve in mass production. Each frame can take six weeks to complete. As these frames are not made in huge quantities, the designers can be more adventurous which makes life a little more interesting.
Three or four times a year I travel to seek out new brands and I look for interesting companies who want to try new things. I look for a quality and passion that matches my own for eyewear.
Established in 2010.
McClintock was born out of a desire to provide people with a place where they could buy cutting edge design made to high levels of quality. A place where old fashioned service and choice could be relied upon.
I have seventeen years of experience in this industry and love it. Coupled with my passion for quality in all aspects of life, I hope I have created the best place you will ever go to for eyewear. I have a particular interest in small brands that only produce hand made frames that are not just licensed names from major fashion houses.
