|1999||Scott Hice started Kappa in 1999.|
I started it because I thought the modern frames had lost a lot of the style that the frames of the 1970's/1980's offered. The frames that were available all looked the same. So, I basically took the classic 1970's/1980's designs and modernized them. The Kappa frames are built tough, but still have that classic old school style.
