Menswear Essentials: Core Optics

Menswear Essentials: Core Optics

| On 20, Aug 2014

Take a trip down Winn Lane in Fortitude Valley and you will find Core Optics, a menswear accessories store. A store bringing a new, eclectic style for the daring Brisbane man.


Store owner Corey Hawley only opened his first store a week ago and yet he’s already sold out of stock, with more exciting designer wear coming in soon. Working for successful optical brands in the past, Corey brings his expertise to men’s eyewear and a key knowledge for what is on trend. With brands such as Michael Kors, Calvin Klein and Lacoste, there is a wide range for menswear optical options. My personal favourite are the gold-framed Calvin Kleins.


Aiming for a more diverse clientele, Core Optics wants to bring an adventurous style to Brisbane menswear. Clothes stocked are from emerging brand Tevita, who have a streetwear aesthetic and use unique patterns to catch the eyes of fashion admirers.


Looking for a trendy beanie for the chillier months or a smart button-up for a night out? I suggest Core Optics for all your menswear needs.


Core Optics also stocks designer accessory options for ladies too- there is something for everyone.

With future plans to open a bigger store and hire a resident optometrist, Core Optics has bright prospects to become the go-to shop in the Valley for sunglasses, prescription glasses and inspiration for the sartorially minded men (and women) of Brisbane.
