Thom Browne New York

An evening on a rooftop in beautiful Paris I had the opportunity of seeing Thom Browne‘s first eyewear collection.

Thom Browne is a New York based fashion designer. His suits look a littel bit awkward consisting of pants so short they show the sockless ankles, and jackets ending right below the waist, not covering the back. The suit colors a mostly gray and matched with a tie in the same fabric.

For his sunglass line he teamed up with eyewear brand Dita to make one of the most detailed and finest eyewear collections I’ve seen. Details such as perforated splatter shields and tri-colored cable temple ends are made in such detail it’s absolute perfection. The shapes are round, oval, aviator or wayfarer in the style of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Have a look and enjoy both the detailing in Thom Browne’s eywear and an amazing Paris Indian summer evening.

Flip ups.

Net shields.

It’s in the details, especially if you are the only one knowing it.

The sunglasses in the very back have flat lenses. Hot!


Aviators are probably the most common type of sunglasses and come in many different variations, from the egg shaped to the straight almost square shaped.

Dita has launched a new luxury sunglass collecten called Lancier. They come in 5 cool styles and are all hand made in Japan. The quality is exceptional, as always from Dita.

Dita Lancier is something for all the gentlemen who are looking for a pair of real solid sunglasses.

The lenses have nearly super power quality. There are three types of lenses, each designed for a different activity. Each type of lens has a symbol of the intended activity.

  • Grey Polarized for sailing.
  • G-15-Non_Polarized for flying.
  • Brown Polarized for driving.

All frames come with both standard straight temples and wrap around temples and are changeable with just a push on a button!

Just like when buying a really good watch all of the individually numbered frames come in a big box including a lovely vintage looking leather case, cleaning cloth, skrewdriver, looped temples and a warranty card.
