We’ve Got Ace & Tate Sunglasses In Our Sights
It may be winter but with the crisp low-lit mornings, we still maintain you’re going to need a pair of shades at one point or another. One brand we’ve had our collective eyes on for a fair while now is trendy Dutch-based spec-creators Ace & Tate, and we tested out a pair of their sunnies on a crisp London winter morning to see how they fared.
Ace & Tate’s popularity has grown over the past few years with quality frames at a fair price, which allow you to continuously update your eyewear. Their Amsterdam-based design team produce future classics, with craftsmanship at the forefront. So much so, the company is even named after the cellulose acetate from which the majority of their frames are formed.
All of Ace & Tate’s frames are handcrafted in a family-owned workshop in Northern Italy with carefully selected acetate that’s light, durable, and malleable, so your frames can be fitted to you for maximum comfort.
Teflon-coated screws and barrel hinges also ensure frames come with a refined toughness and durability. The lenses of their frames are all applied with an anti-scratch layer and a 100% UV protection coating too.
We opted for the Cayman frame in Bio Black. The timeless Italian sports frame has been revised for a sharp but laid back look you’d often find on the continent. As well as the obvious quality in the build, the main thing we loved about the frame was how adaptable they were – whether you’re on the beach or fully layered up on the Heath, the Cayman frames are diverse enough to match with almost anything.
Head over to the Ace & Tate Website now where you can get hold of a pair of sunglasses or standard glasses with the frames and prescription costing £89 all in with no added extras.
