Menswear: Your name is Larry. Who’s Oliver Peoples?
Larry Leight: He was someone with an amazing collection of American-made frames that were never worn; we assume he was a distributor. These frames had been in storage for 30 years. There were 4,000 or 5,000 frames, clip-ons, lenses—all handmade in the USA—as well as tools, brochures and documents with the name Oliver Peoples. I went to a liquidator’s warehouse in Connecticut and wrote a check for about $5,000 for the whole thing.
