Inspired: Made in 1950s America, often standard army issue and considered butters in their time.
Now: Bridge keyholed. Face broadened. Brow chamfered.
Named after Nelson, met on aforementioned trip. A tipster and all round gent. Do you trust me? He asked. We're glad we did.
Size: 52-20-150 (mm).
Our lenses are made from organic plastic. A combination of light-weight and optical clarity. While all frames are made from Mazzucchelli acetate. They're Italian and have been top of the game since 1849.
We weren’t about to spend all this time creating bespoke frames to then dash them in some off the shelf case.
The OD case is made in collaboration with London based leather artisan and mate, Otis Ingrams.
Each one is hand made in London, from 2 pieces of recycled composite leather, 4 brass rivets and one brass stud.
