Oxford Vaughan is born out of three generations of style, craftsmanship and design.

Just as as the quality of a tailored suit is judged on the quality of the material, workmanship and fine detail, where millimetres can make all of the difference; Oxford Vaughan treat their eyewear just as a master tailor would treat his fabrics.

Each pair of Oxford Vaughan sunglasses is individually hand crafted over 140 stages of precision engineering, by the finest eyewear master-craftsmen in the world. Each Oxford Vaughan piece is given its own individual serial number and identification card, and is presented in a piano black wooden presentation box, with a hand-stitched Italian saddle leather roll.

Precision-engineered, with a unique 2 day polishing process for the most beautiful, luxurious finish, Oxford Vaughan sunglasses are crafted using only the world's finest materials; aircraft-grade titanium, the finest acetates and some of the most precious metals in the world – yellow gold, rose gold, white gold and platinum.
