About Barring Eyewear

The Barring Story?

The genesis of Barring is a story of friendship and determination.  Cody's, Eric's, and Joe's friendship developed though common interests in designing sunglasses and their love for the great city of Philadelphia.  Our goal is to build a sustainable business that is committed towards supporting Philadelphia's vibrant fashion community and designing stunning frames. Thank you for taking the time to get to know our intention and please read on about us.

The Value of Barring Frames and How Do You Sustain Your Pricing?

The intrinsic value of Barring frames are greater than most branded frames in market due to the value of the raw materials used to manufacture our frames.  Our wooden frames are assembled with premium woods and our acetate frames from high-grade matted acetate.  We are able to offer exceptional value at our price point by going straight to the manufacturer, cutting out the middle man in all aspects of the supply/design chain, and market direct to consumer.  We don't expend our resources on large scale marketing campaigns and our marked-up is not inflated.  What you see is a great value proposition for a reasonably priced marquee product that is designed to transfer value back to the consumer and fund cancer research. We invite our customers to share our message and enjoy our products to the fullest!

Our Commitment to Quality & Customer Service

Our commitment to quality and service are unwavering and we don’t compromise quality or service for profits. In developing each product, we designed and redesigned multiple iterations of our prototypes until the finished product meets our highest mark for quality.  Our attention to detail from the packaging to the case to the frame design is distinct. 

To be expected, we serve our fans and customers to the best of our abilities.  We promise to manually inspect each frame before ship them to you!  We are so confident in our designs and products that we offer a 30 day return and exchange policy and we also cover manufacture defects up to 1 year at no cost to you and don't forget that every Barring frame is backed by a lifetime warranty!

Disclaimer: Proof of purchase is required for returns, exchanges, and lifetime warranties.  Lost or stolen items are not covered.
