In 2003, a film stylist contacted our owner, David Hart, about a classic frame style needed for an upcoming film. Not knowing the name of the frame or the maker, the stylist sent photos of iconic film stars of the 1950s that featured the distinctive look. David recognized the frame immediately. It was the Tart Arnel, and the film star that was about to walk into his Venice, California optical store (Four Your Eyes) was none other than Johnny Depp. While sifting through David’s vast collection of vintage Arnel’s, Johnny picked out 18 pairs and bought them all. David fitted him personally, and the film, The Secret Window, opened in March of 2004. Having continued to wear his Arnel’s since, Johnny almost single handedly brought the iconic style back into the limelight. Julius Tart, who had been working with David since the mid 1990s, passed the torch to him to revive the line. Since that time, the Tart Arnel has appeared in countless films and print. We owe a debt of gratitude to Johnny for initially working with us and we’re excited to offer U.S.A. made Tart frames once again! #themoreyouknow#tartarnel#oTe#johnnydepp#tartopticalenterprises#vintageeyewear#johnnydeppglasses#tartopticalofficial#madeinusa
Tart Optical is known for their exceptional craftsmanship and only use 7 barrel riveted hinges on all their frames.SWIPE➡️for more photos. Founded in New York City, they've been in business creating exception eyewear since 1948, and continue to do so today.
Tart Optical is very protective of their trademark and heritage and will not hesitate to sue any company offering cheap reproductions of their eyewear.
These are original unused inventory I acquired a few years ago when I bought out a retired optician's store inventory out in Freeport NY. I'm finally getting around to offer them on my website. They even come with their original paper product sleeve.
Arnels in excellent condition can realize anywhere between $600 and $1000 depending on the color and size.
Brad Pitt wore these in 'A Curious Case of Benjamin Button', and Johnny Depp owns a pair in just about every color.
Please note the ones I have are for a NARROW or small adult sized face. I'm wearing the 42-22's and they're the perfect size for me. Tart Optical doesn't offer this 'browline' style on their site nor any of their current inventory in this narrow size but I'll assume they can be custom ordered for a premium #🤓#eyewear#tartoptical#tartarnel#vintageeyewear#hornrimmedglasses#browlineglasses#classic#50s#60s#madmenstyle#hipster#industrialstyle#geekchic#geekgirl#geekglasses#mensglasses#mensfashion#benjaminbuttonglasses#vintageglasses#retrofocuseyewear
