Off the top of your head, you may not know the name, Toru Nogami, but you definitely know his brand, Samurai. You might not recognize the head samurai either, but you’ll quickly notice he has an iconic pair of glasses that he rocks.
The silhouette of these unique glasses is pretty damn unique and eyewear brand Sabae has teamed with Samurai and Nogami to bring ’em to the people. The celluloid frames will age and patina well and come in either black or tortoiseshell, which can be paired with tinted or clear lenses, depending on your preference. These collab specs are made in Japan and come with a denim carrying case and a cleaning cloth. While construction and quality will certainly be off the chain, as one would expect from Samurai and Sabae, the real draw here is the sheer individualism of the piece. How often do you see glasses like these out and about? Get in on the action and maybe get mistaken for a major denim kingpin!
