Tres Noir Rockabilly Sunglasses
Tres Noir is a sunglasses brand started by two brothers who wanted to create real, one of a kind sunglasses designs. They took classic American styles that are typically channeled in pin up, retro and rockabilly looks and turned them into functional pieces that are completely unique in the marketplace.

Their main objective was to create retro styles of sunglasses that were high quality and affordable, and through this passion they created Tres Noir Handmade Optics.
Each frame in Tres Noir is handmade individually from acetate, and the styles are not mass produced. They are inspired by classic Americana culture, with heavy influence stemming from music and lowbrow art, particularly rockabilly styles. The first collection was introduced to the public in spring 2006, running out of a garage in Long Beach, California.
Little did the brothers know that the reaction would be so positive and the demand would soon become overwhelming. They launched another collection in 2007, moving to a warehouse in Orange County, California. The glasses can be seen on many musicians, scenesters and artists, making an unexpectedly huge impact on pop culture.
With 17 original styles, the clientele is just as diverse as the uniqueness of the looks. If you’re a fan of the pin up, retro and rockabilly looks, a pair of Tres Noir rockabilly sunglasses is an integral part of your wardrobe. Get the classic cat-eye look from the Tres A Go-Go frames or Ultra Lux. For more of a circular Audrey Hepburn look, the Bombshell frames are sure to have heads turning. The Femme Fatale, Sonic Reducer and Kabuki Girl frames all offer something unique, with square, oval and wide lines that can complement any face shape.
Tres Noir hasn’t forgot about the men, either. Classic greaser dude looks can be found in the 45’s and Waycooler frames, or go for The Belmont for the classic aviator look. Big and small square and rectangular looks are all available for the guys who are looking for both extreme and subtle rockabilly or retro looks.
Whether you dress full-blown rockabilly or just like small accents here and there, Tres Noir frames are perfect for any look. The lenses are top quality and can even be tailored to your own optic prescription, and the handmade acetate frames are durable and sure to last you many years.
