If you know about Cutler and Gross, then you know that the luxury eyewear maker takes a different tack when it comes to creating a shopping experience. This is the company, for example, that puts shoppable vintage vaults in its retail stores.

The article says that the service starts at $4,000, and 26 different people measure a client’s temple length, bridge location and head size before the glasses are made in the company’s factory in Italy. “A lot of love goes into making them,” says Marie Wilkinson, C&G’s head of design. “These craftsmen have it in their blood, and they feel like they leave a part of themselves behind.”
