Out East Eyewear is a modern luxury Hamptons eyewear brand that replaces lost or broken sunglasses for a fraction of the initial price. Founded by Dylan Grace, Jeremy Valeda, and Martha Nolan, who met while quarantining in a Montauk summer house in June of 2020, aim to disrupt the eyewear industry by providing a viable option to replace the premium sunglasses market at an affordable price. “After spending the summer of 2020 in a house full of New Yorkers who loved their sunglasses but kept losing them, we knew there was an opportunity to solve a frequent problem,” said Grace, Head of Strategy and Co-Founder of Out East Eyewear. “Our biggest value proposition is our replacement program. The program allows customers to live carefree, replacing lost or broken glasses up to twice a year for just $35, no questions asked”. 

The collection is currently comprised of sixteen premium quality unisex sunglasses, though there are plans to expand into other areas of eyewear in the coming months. Each pair of sunglasses is designed carefully in the Hamptons and is sold on the Out East Eyewear website and will be in various stores in Montauk, East Hampton and Sag Harbor, and other boutiques across the country over the coming weeks. Each style is polarized and named after iconic streets in the towns of the Hamptons. Out East Eyewear only uses premium grade materials to craft their frames, such as Italian cellulose acetate – a renewable plant-based material. Out East Eyewear has a pair of sunglasses for everyone, from light-weight aviators, classic wayfarer styles to gold-plated round lenses. The brand has already collaborated with some well-known influencers and New York socialites and will be partnering with many other Hamptons brands this coming summer.

Founding Story

In the midst of a global pandemic, an idea was born. For many New Yorkers, summer isn’t complete if you don’t get to experience a Montauk sunset while enjoying a lobster roll, ride the morning waves at any of the Hamptons beaches, or even hit up a concert at any of the regular hot spots! Out East Eyewear's lifestyle brand was created to embody the carefree life Out East. After spending many months in a house full of New Yorkers who loved their sunglasses but kept losing them, Dylan knew there was an opportunity to solve a frequent problem.
