Founded in 2003 out of a fanatical love of old school frames that were difficult to find in Australia, AM Eyewear has grown rapidly from a cheeky young upstart into a cult brand respected around the globe. Our ethos is simple; to design beautiful, unique and exceptional eyewear that makes a difference.
With so much effort going into the design and manufacture of every frame, we choose to dedicate every design to the person who has inspired it. Priding ourselves of quality and originality, we are dedicated to designing truly bespoke eyewear from start to finish. Our designs are born with a sketchpad and pencil where all aspects are meticulously brought to life. AM’s materials are sourced from across Europe and the far east, including Japanese titanium, sustainably sourced Indian buffalo horn, aeronautical aluminium & Italian acetate.
Our acetate frames are cut from Italian Mazzucchelli acetate before being handcrafted and polished by a master artisan in a series of processes that take upwards of 14 hours to complete. We are one of only a handful of brands that have been granted an exclusive copartnership with Zeiss and our sunglasses are specially fitted with their highest quality Italian-made lenses, ensuring your eyes are protected whilst also looking their best.
Before our designs are ready to wear we check for quality through three separate inspection processes to guarantee they meet our stringent standards. They are then packed and shipped by hand, but only ever truly complete once worn.
