Brent Zerger

We recently got to know Brent Zerger, the Director of Communications for l.a.Eyeworks, whose passion for his job is matched only by his passion for eyewear. Brent has countless pairs of glasses on rotation – and even more stored away in his personal eyewear collection – but he has been recently favoring this pair of l.a.Eyeworks “Silverman” frames in Black Etch. These statement frames are quintessential of the brand – a mix of art and attitude, with an exaggerated brow line of etched stainless steel, tempered by a sleek and slim profile. The two-tone pattern adds visual interest, and it’s the play on texture, colour and material that really grabs our attention. (Sidenote: Tim tried them on and they’re surprisingly comfortable and easier to pull off than you’d think!)

We photographed Brent outside of la.Eyeworks’ Beverly Boulevard store, where its latest slogan seems particularly appropriate in light of recent events surrounding the legalization of same-sex marriage. Check back in the next few weeks as we take you inside the store, which has become an unofficial eyewear boutique-slash-gallery of sorts for both locals and tourists alike.
