Inspiration: Sharp, 70s Americana. They meant business.
Now: Boxed off hinge lugs and softened brow angles. A little more pleasure, but still the business.

Our tinted lenses are made from lightweight CR-39 plastic and coated for proper UV protection you'd expect. 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.
Each one is hand made in London, from 2 pieces of recycled composite leather, 4 brass rivets and one brass stud.
