During the first consultation we take your facial measurements and work with you to develop the design. We typically create three silhouettes to prototype.
During the second consultation we review the prototypes and select your material, choosing from a wide range of zyl acetate and water buffalo horn.
Once we have confirmed the final design, we begin making your frames by hand – this is a meticulous and highly skilled process, and typically takes around four weeks.
Create a unique frame over a period of six to eight weeks with the help of our designers, materials and patterns.
3d printed bridge
We recently created what we believe may be the world’s first 3D printed metal bridge. And what a pleasure it is to meet you, future. Designed by our dear friend and long term collaborator Charles Duffy, the bridge was 3D printed out of stainless steel to submillimetre precision. It was then polished by hand on the front, and left with the original 3D printed surface on the rear, before being mechanically fixed to the handmade acetate frontpiece using four rivets. A thing of beauty, we hope you agree.
This enormous fellow is almost 160mm wide, and constructed from 8mm thick vintage acetate. He features a saddle bridge, paddle temples with scored tips, and a double dot pinned ‘NFW’ hinge. A true one-off, and quite the beast.
A unique pair of oversized sunglasses, with a flat front and even flatter brow, completed with a low base flash mirror lens.

Leather Side Shields
ready to fly
Bespoke spectacles and matching leather side shields, designed for our client's weekend pursuit of flying light aircraft.
for designer Mirja Pitkäär
We created this unique frame for Mirja Pitkäärt, a designer who studied at the Estonian Academy of Arts and the London College of Fashion. Mirja’s design eschews symmetry to challenge the traditional notions of beauty. As well as the asymmetric browline, we incorporated contrasting ‘lugs’, one rounded and one angular.
Bespoke Reading Spectacles
for tom dixon
Statement spectacles for designer Tom Dixon: an angled lens shape, flat bridge, and oversized ‘earjoy’ temples, made by hand in a ‘Quartz’ crystal acetate using custom Cubitts pins and wirecore.
A Delicately Upswept Silhouette
with a gentle browline
A custom frame, designed and crafted to our client’s exact measurements and specification. With a saddle bridge and gentle upswept browline, we’re rather please with the final result.
Thick and Straight Cut
One man's signature frame
A rather dashing, flat fronted shape with straight and thick paddle temples and hidden construction in Gentleman's black. Modelled from a pair of signature frames that, for many a year, has become a signature style for our American fellow. Like a tuxedo, only for your face.
Crystal acetate bespoke
A chunky but smooth frame in transparent blue, clearer than the Thames water. Big ol' blue features a deep saddle bridge and extra wide paddle temples.
An elegant and square pair.
This slender made-to-measure rounded square lens style features a keyhole bridge, subtly angled outer rim and distinctive dropped lugs all in our Olive acetate. Completed with Cubitts custom pins, naturally.
Classic round eye
A small but perfectly formed, made-to-measure pair with a saddle bridge. The mottled colouring of our Agate is a fine match for this petite frame.
