Wayfarers, wayfarers, and some more wayfarers, the demand is high and contagious for these 1950’s replicas. Cited as the best selling sunglass design in history, it’s been skipping generations with a breeze. Originally designed by Raymond Stegeman in 1952, it’s made a debut almost every decade since then. From Presidents to movie stars, rock stars, artists, fashion designers to runway models, there's not a generation alive that can't remember owning (or wanting to own) a pair of these iconic sunglasses. Featured in popular flicks such as breakfast at Tiffany’s, Risky Business, Miami Vice and many, many more. It’s been a revolutionary 'must have' amongst fashion frenzy individuals.
Since its highest demand started between 2008 until present, many designers have different variations of this shape. Ok...You are adamant to find the original.
If digging through parent’s old glasses drawer in hopes of finding the original wayfarer falls though, here at Gafas expect to find nothing less then the lucrative genuine wayfarer designs. We have models like wayfarer I, wayfarer II, in solid black and various double toned colours. Even the one of a kind (probably doesn't exist any more) wayfarer II sport 1992 Albertville limited edition. So whatever your style, you’ll be sure to find it here.

As a potential frame buyer, you look at all the different criteria's that are out there. Which designer, what colours, what shape, size, plastic/metal...? With all these things to ponder about, the main worry is sizing. Nowadays, there are a lot of oversized frames on the market, which makes the searching experience challenging for people with smaller faces. Why settle for anything less than what you've expected? If you’re unable to find anything that fits, here are some designer suggestions, when looking for that distinguished look. Salt, Lafont, Pro Design and Paul Frank are some of the few lines that have an incredible selection to choose from. They are modern, yet they honour the past.
Searching for a right fitting frame can be a gruesome experience, come to Gafas and let us make your life easier. Here’s a little preview of what to expect!

As the weekend creeps in and the weather looks promising, we need to let loose and enjoy what downtown has to offer. There is plenty to do on Queen Street, no matter what you’re into. If you feel like letting loose and listening to some live rock music while sipping on a beer, check out 'The Hideout'. Easy going, friendly people and great atmosphere. Another chilling joint is 'Tattoo rock parlour'. It is just as the name implies... a bar plus tattoo parlour, with the same operating hours. Therefore if getting loaded and getting your body inked sounds appealing, than all the power to you! In the mean time, the rest of us can be found head banging to Prodigy, The Killers, Rolling Stones, Steppenwolf, Arctic Monkeys... you get the idea. Regardless the decor is beautiful, music is amazing, the crowd is fantastic and the bartenders are more efficient than many I have come across. Rock on and enjoy the weekend!

Fall... the colours are ravishing, the clothes are chic and the weather is wet, take the good with the bad. At least, the weekend is right around the corner and the forecast looks 'umbrella free', which gives you a good reason to stroll downtown and do a little shopping. Gafas just received new fabulous arrivals by Chrome Hearts, one of my most favourites is model 'Fupa'. It's a classic vintage in modern translation: clean, sophisticated, well made.
