Handcrafted eyewear brand Shwood is collaborating wih Pendleton, a heritage brand, for an exclusive limited-edition collaboration called “Shwood for Pendleton” and the results are worth the pricetag. Following up on last year’s collaboration, the two brands, both based in Portland, Oregon, teammed up for this year’s edition which features Pendleton’s signature “Rancho Arroyo” pattern laser-engraved on the temples.
The sunglasses are made from dark walnut wood, fitted with grey polarized lenses and come with a custom Pendleton wool storage pouch. They are available now at shwoodshops.com for $250. The collaboration is limited to 500 pairs.
The handcrafted wood give a different feel that allow the sunglasses to stand out despite its subtlety. But where they excel is in the details. And isn’t the details is what style is all about anyway?
