Inspired goods with modern taste is one of the things that Knickerbocker Mfg. does best. That’s why it’s no surprise that for their latest release, they’ve teamed up with fellow New Yorkers, Lowercase, to release these one-of-a-kind R.P.G. Frame Sunglasses, because even though the days may be shorter, that doesn’t mean the sun will be shining any less bright on your eyeballs.
Drawing inspiration from late-’70s model military issued eyeglass frames, these have been slightly modified for the modern man and were made with an exaggerated shape and amber infused Italian-made translucent tortoise shell acetate frame material. But the meticulous details don’t stop there. These sunnies feature OBE German-engineered 5-barrel hinges, coated screws, and 100% UVA/UVB Carl Zeiss CR-39 sun lenses with optional polarization. And to top it all off, this limited release was made right at home in NYC.
Available for $325 at Knickerbocker Mfg.
