The Woodgrain


Count on the Northwest to make us nostalgic for summer. Oregon’s Shwood just released a new set of shades, the Ashland, and as handsome as they are, we suspect we won't be needing them for at least a six months.

The frames take after a classic 80s aviator not too different from the kind Kanye’s favoring these days, carved out of East Indian rosewood. It’s a kind of texture you don’t get the chance to wear very often, and it's strange and handsome enough to turn a standard pair of aviators into something that's almost avant garde.

And yes, they'll be even better once the sun comes out.
