I think my favourite thing to do this week, is try to find eyewear from non eyewear brands. Yesterday it was Tretorn, today it’s boot masters, Timberland. Intended “for people who love every minute they spend outdoors. Timberland eyeglasses are rugged, environmentally-conscious and functional.”
Made from horn coloured acetate, the 1079 636 is a bit of a fancy step, for the traditionally utilitarian label. Thick arms, drive home their durability and spring hinges, guarantee comfort. Completed with a subtle orange stripe at the temples, these specs are surprisingly stylish, for such a practical company. Available online.
