    Originally from Northern Ireland, I came to England seventeen years ago. My first proper job was in an opticians and I have never left the industry since (apart from one month at a bespoke shirt makers). I have sixteen years experience of the eyewear industry and have a passion for handmade spectacles and sunglasses with an eye on innovation in design.

  • Vintage Kirk Originals. Very rare pieces now in store.

    Saturday, March 22, 2014

    It is over twenty years since Kirk Originals emerged as a brand. What started as a business selling old stock frames, evolved into one of the most exciting brands in Europe. These days they are hand made in France but there was a time when they were made in England. Clacton on Sea to be exact. The frames below are from those early days. I managed to get hold of some of the very earliest collections and have given them a clean up, put some new lenses in so they comply with modern legislation and can now make them available to you.
    Please don’t ask if we have that colour or this colour, these are seriously limited. If you like the ones pictured or come and see them in store, don’t hang about as I will never be able to get them again, that is for sure.
