Downing

Starting at $175, including polarized lenses

Antique Shale Fade with Green-Grey lenses

This Downing frame has the same winning proportions, round lenses, and keyhole bridge as the original—we’ve just scaled it up to fit wider faces (or anyone who wants an oversized style).

  • Made from custom cellulose acetate

  • Akulon-coated screws for durability

  • Cut from a single sheet of acetate to maintain color parity

  • Premium polarized lenses are made with CR-39 for maximum clarity and color; prescription sunglasses are made with polarized polycarbonate lenses, the most impact-resistant prescription lens material on the market

  • Lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays

  • Anti-scratch coating included

  • Frames are hand-polished for three days with a German wax compound before making their way to your eyes.
