Mott & Bayard Eyewear

Mott & Bayard Eyewear Logo

The story of Mott & Bayard Eyewear is the story of finding the perfect pair of glasses. Buying a pair of glasses that fits well and looks great is tough. Some frames may look stylish, but once you put them on, they sit too close to your cheeks or feel too heavy on your nose. Some may fit perfectly, but you wouldn't be caught dead leaving the house wearing them. Mott & Bayard Eyewear was created to change that. We make great-looking and better fitting glasses with the finest material on the market so that people can feel both confident and comfortable wearing them.




Over the years, I’ve come across hundreds of fashion and designer eyewear brands. One thing still strikes me today is that most glasses are made without different types of facial structures in mind. There’re only a handful of eyewear brands that offer alternative fits. That’s why I created Mott & Bayard, to change the way glasses fit so that they can be both comfortable and good-looking on everyone, even those with low nose bridges.

— Kenneth Ma, Founder of Mott & Bayard Eyewear



Mott & Bayard Eyewear embodies the cultural and stylistic dynamism of Lower Manhattan by capturing the look and feel of SoHo and Chinatown. Each pair of Mott & Bayard frames are made out of the best acetate material on the market, and feature elevated nose pads that offer a more accurate and comfortable fit. We want to give people the freedom to choose the frames they want, without worrying about the fit.

We believe everyone deserves great-looking and better-fitting glasses!


Introducing: Mott & Bayard TrueFit


Made With All-natural Cellulose Acetate  
Each and every pair of Mott & Bayard frames is made out of an award-winning, patented high-density cellulose acetate, a non-petroleum based material that is made from natural cotton and wood fibers. This material is known for being strong, lightweight, and more durable than regular cellulose acetate and plastics. It also has the widest range for transparency, rich colors, and finishes.
Elevated Nose Pads
Our nose pads are 30% higher than most designer eyewear frames' nose pads. This means that they can provide more support and fit more naturally on the nose. No more squinting or pinching!


Comfortable Frame Tilt
We adjusted the frame tilt to make it sit parallel to the face, not at an uncomfortable tilt that can make the frame lie too close to the cheeks.
Five-Barrel Hinges
We added Five-Barrel Hinges to increase the stability of the frame and decrease the chance of losing a screw.
