Jones And Co. Introducing… Masunaga Glasses & Frames in Manchester

Every year, we travel to international optical trade shows to source exclusive and individual eyewear on your behalf and we bring the best of the best back to Manchester for you to choose from! A few years ago, on a trip to Milan, we discovered the incredible collection of Masunaga. So sit back, relax, and get ready to meet Masunaga.

Made the Old-Fashioned Way

Founded in 1905, Masunaga is one of the oldest eyewear brands in the world. What’s the secret to its longevity you ask? Good question. It’s the finest old-world Japanese craftsmanship…

Over the years, and from looking at hundreds of thousands of frames, the team at Jones And Co. has a highly developed skill for separating the wheat from the chaff. We instantly recognised that Masunaga were masters of their craft.

We were mesmerised by their classic shapes and clean lines – tailored to perfection, and the timeless simplicity and allure of the premium materials that characterise these frames. They are deftly designed and meticulously handcrafted. There is simply no comparison to the quality and finish of a Masunaga frame.

Hundreds of Design Accolades

During its illustrious past, Masunaga has crafted eyewear for emperors, foreign dignitaries and even time travellers – with Masunaga frames chosen for the Osaka Expo Time Capsule in 1970.

Masunaga’s century-old heritage is compelling and reflected in its modern-day collection.

The brand was established in Japan’s Fukui region in 1905 by eyewear pioneer Gozaemon Masunaga. It took just six years for Masunaga eyewear to be recognised for manufacturing excellence when it won a Gold Medal at Japan’s National Manufacturing Trade Exhibition – the first of hundreds of design accolades to come.

The quality of Masunaga eyewear is unparalleled. Every component is crafted and assembled by hand, using only the finest high-grade pure titanium and hand-polished Japanese acetate.

Masunaga is one of the only factories in the world to manage all 200 manual processes in the eyewear manufacturing pipeline – from handling raw materials to ensuring perfection.

From its origin, the brand has always prioritised meticulous quality standards above everything else, resulting in frames prized for their detail and durability.

Spring/Summer 2021 Collection

Masunaga’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection is stripped down, revolving around a few simple, yet perfectly balanced designs. This capsule collection features strikingly minimalist glasses and sunglasses engineered for absolute comfort and effortless style.

Experience a Frame in a Class By Itself

For those in the know, Masunaga is one of the most revered eyewear brands on the planet.

Most opticians won’t have even heard of Masunaga. Most haven’t invested the energy and time or developed the skill to seek out and source the crème de la crème of eyewear design from around the world. These are not mass-produced frames. They can only be found in a handful of opticians. And at Jones and Co. Styling Opticians, we proudly stock the largest collection of Masunaga eyewear in the UK.

However, the real advantage of seeing the Jones And Co. team is our expertise and know-how for getting the very best out of our eyewear collections for every single client.

At Jones And Co., each frame is individually styled to complement your face shape, your features, colouring, your prescription, and your personal style.

We’ve picked out a few of our favourite snaps from clients who have made a superb choice with Masunaga. Book an appointment to come in and see what Masunaga can do for you!
