That Dapper Chap introduces us to one of Australia’s leading eyewear brands
WHO ARE OSCAR WYLEE?
Founded in 2012, Oscar Wylee are an Australian eyewear brand based in Sydney and run by two savvy gents called John and Mike who, according to their web site supply glasses to the curious.

Being a curious kind of chap I popped over to their site to have a look at their range after we struck up an online conversation.
I was immediately impressed by their vintage style range. The shapes and colours available are not the run of the mill stuff and there really is something there for all tastes. If you’re more of the quirky type, maybe you fancy trying Leo in a peach fade. Maybe you’re a vintage style gent who would suit Merriweather in the Auburn Tortoise colourway. Whatever your style, there will be something you like here.

WHAT ARE OSCAR WYLEE ALL ABOUT?
The idea behind Oscar Wylee is simple: to provide high-quality, affordable eyeglasses with a vintage feel. They say that they’re not doing anything too complicated, but they are cutting out the middleman, thereby giving you the same glasses direct from the factory, minus the price tag.

Until recently Oscar Wylee were based out of John’s garage. They say that it’s been “fun” but a lot of the work was carried out in a stairwell so they’ve now moved in to smart new space and are doing very well, even having their own showroom where you can see all of the frames and meet the team.

I CARE FOR EYECARE
One thing that sets Oscar Wylee apart from other eyewear brands is their commitment to Cambodia’s continuing problem with eyecare. For every single pair of glasses that you buy they donate to this incredible cause, making a real difference to peoples lives by helping to save their sight.

MY OSCAR WYLEE SUNGLASSES
So after building a relationship with Oscar Wylee they kindly sent me a sample from their range of sunglasses to wear and test out. I wanted something a little different and was spoiled for choice here.
After a whittling down my choice I opted for Perry in the Aged Bourbon colourway and before long a beautiful box arrived on my door mat with a lovely note from the guys at Oscar Wylee.

|Cool, clean and well presented|

The glasses are great, they fit well are are well made. Not only that but I chose a great design. My friends are already jealous and they did a tour of the office being tried on by my colleagues when I wore them to work. In short I’m impressed. Impressed by the range, impressed by the service and very impressed by their dedication to such a great cause.
