In Store Now | Shwood Sunglasses

Known for their classic designs made out of not-so-classic materials, Shwood Sunglasses are upping the ante as far as sunglasses are concerned. 

Shwood’s use of universally flattering and retro vibe frames along with Carl Zeiss lens imported from Italy are the many reasons why these sunnies are so coveted. Come by the shop and try on a pair of the sunnies that are sparking curiosities.

Look good, do good.

That’s the feeling you get whenever you support a brand like Toms. Aside from having one of the best looking and comfiest shoes in the game, they are now also adding sunnies to their product line. 

Similar to their one for one model when purchasing a pair of Toms shoes, when you buy a pair of their sunglasses, Toms will guarantee prescription glasses or medical care for a person in need. Change happens with your purchase.

Fashion with compassion, you can’t get better than that.

In Store Now | Men’s Dita Sunglasses

"Are these the best?" That’s one of the first questions we ask ourselves when deciding to bring a product into the store and Dita Sunglasses definitely answers that question with a triumphant YES!

Dita Sunglasses are hands down one of the best sunglasses around. The proof is in the glasses themselves because “All Dita frames are hand made in Japan and use only the highest quality materials: titanium, 18K gold, white gold and the finest Japanese zyl acetates.”

But don’t just take our word for it. Come by the store and try them on. You’ll soon understand why all of us at the store love these sunglasses.

| You Should Know | Shwood Select 2012 Video Lookbook

I’m usually not a fan of 3D. It tends to give me a headache. However, I may change my tune after seeing this video.

Our friends at Shwood created their 2012 video lookbook using a 3D technique from the early 1800’s that provides us with a cool and interesting preview of their collection, amidst the backdrop and incredible views of Oregon’s backwoods. Enjoy the video and visit the store to check out our selection of Shwood. We still have a few in stock.

| Brand Spotlight | Shwood 

Shwood sunglasses have done an almost impossible feat. They’ve captured the magnificent beauty found in nature and harnessed it into a super rad looking pair of glasses.

Headquartered in Oregon, the very first pair of Shwoods were born from the limb of a Madrone tree, a rusty pair of cabinet hinges, and lenses from the corner store. Since then, they’ve hand crafted every pair of Shwoods in-house, seeking to manipulate the wood as little as possible. When your materials have that much natural beauty already, it takes a great deal of innovation to preserve that goodness. 

The styles are classic, so when you buy a pair of Shwoods you know it will be a pair you own for a very long time. We have a great selection of styles, colors available now in store! 

Not just an eyewear brand, they embody an idea, a lifestyle. This Is Oregon is a video series created by Shwood and Julian Bialowas to inspired people to get up, go out, and start exploring. Their motto is you never know what could beauty could be right outside your city limits. 

My advice to you: pack your Shwoods, and get going!

| Brand Spotlight | Shwood & Pendleton Collaboration 
Last year, Shwood and Pendleton Woolen Mills joined forces to create a pretty amazing pair of cherry wood Canby frames that were laser-cut in Pendleton’s signature “Chief Joseph” pattern. You’ll find the same pattern on the Pendleton wool storage pouch they come in. Limited to 1,000 pieces, these glasses are something special as the project pays tribute to the state of Orgegon and the heritage manufacturing techniques that make the products great. 
Pick up a pair for yourself at Threads & Needles.

P.S. Shwood also have a pretty rad instagram that you should definitely get hip to: @shwoodshop
