My new eyewear from New York based brand MORGENTHAL-FREDERICS.
"In 1986, New York optician Richard Morgenthal purchased the iconic Frederics Opticians, and the first Morgenthal Frederics store was born on Madison Avenue. Trained in the fine art of painting, Richard Morgenthal paired his love for optics and art to provide eyewear clients with the ultimate in-store experience in an environment where they could enjoy beautifully handcrafted eyewear.
Every frame in the Morgenthal Frederics collection is a perfect convergence of style, craftsmanship and function. All the metal used in our frames is composed of top grade Japanese titanium. Our plastic frames are hand crafted from sheet acetate in Japan and France and our signature one-of-a-kind buffalo horn frames are hand milled by master craftsmen in Germany.”
Browsing through vintage stores looking for that special item is something that’s been a part of my life ever since my brother lived in London, a few years back. While sometimes nothing special hits your eye, other times that unique garment is enough to compensate for lost time: this was just the case with this Harris Tweed’s 3 button blazer. A timeless classic in charcoal with green and brown checks, flap pockets and wooden buttons makes it the perfect cold weather alternative for a put together look. The sturdy fabric provides the right amount of texture and warmth perfectly adapting to more formal or relaxed looks. Taking the latter into account, there’s no need to get slouchy on the weekend…
