The story of Alexander Wilton and the Alexander Wilton™ brand has its roots in New York during the early 1900's.


Alexander lived in New York when he developed a passion for eyewear design. The eyewear industry was growing, but Alexander believed that many designs lacked two important characteristics: elegance, and style.


Alexander had a vision to establish his own line of both elegant and stylish eyewear frames. 

His original sketches, some dating back to the 1940's, were recovered and eventually inspired our line of sunglasses.
