Jon and Lizzie Sunglasses

09/04/2010

From the Brooklyn-based studio behind the plaid pocket scarf, Wintercheck Factory introduces another functional accessory, this time adding wrap-around protection to sunglasses with their new Jon and Lizzie line. Modeled after the looks and design of old-school safety glasses, Wintercheck adapted the style to make the industrial feel of these classically vintage shapes available to all.

Pistachio- or smoke-colored lenses lay the base for the plastic impact-resistant frames, each with colorful accents (they hand-dip the ear stems in urethane) and fitted with safety standard compliant side shields. Both the Wayfarer-esque Lizzie and the aviator-inspired Jon sunglasses come with a custom waterproof Witz lens locker case and carabiner, begging for trips to the beach.

The 99.9% UV protected Jon and Lizzie sunglasses sell from Wintercheck Factory’s online shop for $45 each. See more images in the gallery below.
