Leisure Society Eyewear Excusively in St. Louis at Erker's

Introducing Leisure Society exclusively at Erker's Fine Eyewear in Ladue. Designer Shane Baum, a member of the CFDA and known for his work with Louis Vuitton, this ultra luxe collection took over three years to develop. Each frame, an heirloom piece, requires six hours to engrave therefore limiting production to only 4 frames per day. Many of the drawings contain over 3000 carefully placed lines, and the result is triumph from both fahsion and optical manufacturing standpoint.

Leisure Society will have an innagural run of only 75 pcs per style, the collection will retail from $550.00-$50,000. Come to Erker's in Ladue to check out the entire line of Leisure Society. Fine us online at or give Erker's a call at 314-997-0002 or downtown at 314-241-9410.

Randy Jackson wearing VUE DC on the New American Idol

The New American Idol Season 10 kicked off today with a new look, new image, and new judges. The reviews are already out and it seems that the judges are nicer, kinder and a little more gentle to the contestants who are brave enough to try out for the auditions in New Jersey. The show was entertaining as usual but what really stood out for me is the VUE DC frames Randy Jackson was wearing for most of the New Jersey auditions. Looking sharp and put together it looks like Randy Jackson is discovering what Erker's already knows, Vue Dc is a great frame line. Using bold frames and unique shapes Vue Dc has created a line that look great while making a bold statement. Come on by to Erker's to check out the entire Vue Dc frame collection and stay tuned to American Idol to see if Randy can keep up with Erker's on the latest and greatest eyewear trends seen this season.

Should you Purchase Presciption Sunglasses or get a Clip for your eyeglasses.

Many People who wear Glasses have a delima whether to purchase a pair of sunglasses or to get a clip that fits over their glasses. These are both great options and each one has their benefits.
Most clips do not fit correctly on certain frames and that is why at Erker's Eyewear we only make custom clips for each pair of glasses. This is to ensure the best fit, vision and longevity over the life of your frames. Clips are great because they are not bulky like sunglasses and are easy to carry around with you. Clips have a few drawbacks due to the way the fit over the frame, a person wearing a clip typically does not get as much coverage as they could with a pair of sunglasses. Sunglasses are great for this reason. They block out more sunlight. Sunglasses are also better for your active on-the-go life style and should fit perfectly for a second pair of prescription eyewear. The drawbacks to sunglasses are they are much bulkier to carry and you are buying two pair of prescription eyewear. Clips and Sunglasses are both great for different reasons. You just need to choose which would better fit your needs and your lifestyle. Come to Erkers in Ladue or Downtown and our opticians will help you pick the one that works best for you.

See you at Erker's
