The rake

The modern voice of classic elegance


In recent years, independent eyewear makers have been making a spirited comeback, and not before time, as discerning consumers look for more than mass market frames of cheap acetate and spurious provenance. Cubitts, founded in London by Tom Broughton in 2012, is one such little fish swimming against the current in the big eyewear pond. With 50 stages of production over a period of six weeks, including four separate stages of polishing to ensure a glorious lustre, Cubitts’ frames are the perfect addition to the modern gentleman’s aesthetic.
