Yes, it has arrived: Thom Browne’s notorious collaboration with Dita Eyewear is in stock now at Bruce, side-shields and all.
From New York, well known menswear designer Thom Browne has an eye toward the past with his recent eyewear and sunglass collection. Many of his shapes are reminiscent of the chunky and squared off 50s look, including combination frames of titanium and Japanese acetate.
However, Browne seems also to be reaching further back to nostalgic rounds and fine metals of the early 20th century, touching on military garb with cable-temples, varying styles of side-shields and sunglass clips. Finished in platinum and 18k gold, these hand-crafted titanium frames are solid in construction, and classically delicate in appearance.
Continuing with Dita’s reputation for exquisite manufacturing quality, these pieces are each finished with temple-tips featuring Browne’s signature americana stripes. Beautifully traditional, yet refreshingly innovative.
Even before handling, these glasses speak for themselves. Quality design and craftsmanship makes them feel as good as they look. See more images here or come by and try them on.
Thank you to the Vancouver Sun for dropping our name in the January 2nd issue regarding this collection!

Handmade and manufactured in Japan, these chunky plastic frames are great for blocking the sun with their wide temples. Quality design with UV protection on both the lens & frame, these are sure to be a hit on those super sunny days that must be on their way!
