WOOD SUNGLASSES

Bonnie / Clyde Two tone wood sunglasses by Capital Eyewear

DOING IT RIGHT

The first time you see our wood sunglasses, you might think they are just a novelty. But as you pick them up and feel the warmth and texture of real wood or the hinges that stretch to fit just right, you can tell there is something more to these glasses. After trying them on it's clear that they aren't just good looking, but also a functional work of art made to last.







Every Frame is Unique

Each piece of wood we use has it's own unique characteristics. This makes every pair of wooden sunglasses we make a one of a kind item. You'll never see another pair that's exactly like yours.



Waterproof

Sealed up to 3 times for protection from moisture. Sweat, rain or changes in humidity will not damage them.



Handmade in USA

All our sunglasses are handmade in the USA with the finest materials and craftsmanship in the world.



Spring Hinges

Capital wood sunglasses use stretch-to-fit hinges which gives a comfortable and secure fit on a wide range of head sizes. See our size guide if you want to know more about sizes.



Strongest in the World

We treat all our wood sunglasses to bond natural fibers within the wood. This makes the frames much stronger than untreated wood could ever be without sacrificing the beauty and character of real natural wood.



American Hardwoods

We only use wood that is sourced from the USA. We have not and will never use any wood from rain-forests or endangered sources.



Carl Zeiss Vision Lenses

Simply the best optics in the world. Carl Zeiss is responsible for the optics in the Hubble Space Telescope, the camera lenses used for countless feature films and the lenses in all of our sunglasses.
