The Al - Black with Brown Lens
The AL from Thistles is a voluminous rectangular frame with soft curves and bold edges. Paying homage to a 60s Jackie Onassis silhouette with a twist of 90s edge, this glam, yet refined style can be worn fitted over the eyebrows or sitting comfortably on the bridge of the nose.
The AL is made in the highest quality cellulose acetate, a plant-based plastic composed of cotton fibers and wood pulp. Each pair features five-barrel hinges for durability and CR-39 lenses for UV protection and is handmade in Japan.
Available in Black Frame with either Black Lens, or Brown Lens.
THISTLES is a New York City-based eyewear line by stylist and photographer Thistle Brown. THISTLES is all about contemporary takes on traditional styles and has the image of a heritage brand with a raw New York City sensibility. New York itself has long been a city for the voyeur. Sunglasses provide a dual function in this: something to hide from everything around you and something that offers the opportunity to be seen.
