Good but could be improved.
Ordered these for my brother for Christmas as he requested a pair of wooden sunglasses. Nice shades, but the arms should have flexible/spring loaded hinges to allow them to open out further without risk or breaking or bending the arms, this is helpful for people with wider heads also. I was scared to open them when they arrive it felt like they might break if I pulled the arms open too fast...
Thanks for your review Craig. You do not need to worry about the frame breaking at all. It's designed to be flexible and we deliberately did not fit spring hinges in this model as the frame and arms can flex to accommodate a wider face if needs be. We've fitted high quality optical hinges instead. At first these sunglasses may appear to be delicate, but the multi layer construction actually makes them the opposite. We've been able to create a slimline frame which can actually withstand a lot more rough treatment than a thicker full wood frame.
Our sunglasses are made from either sustainably sourced woods, plant based acetate, biodegradable materials or recycled plastics. You'll enjoy a clear view and have a clear conscience!
