Stories American shoe crafters Allen Edmonds have teamed with San Francisco’s Capital Eyewear for a special exxclusive curation of sunglasses that bring Allen Edmonds one well-heeled step closer to being a full-fledged lifestyle line. Slowly but surely, Allen Edmonds has expanded from offering just shoes and belts to including a few pieces of clothing and outerwear in stores, giving guys a few more things to browse while they’re picking up boots and brogues. But with its newest partnership, Allen Edmonds is bringing California line Capital Eyewear to a nationwide audience, giving guys from coast to coast a chance to shop the line’s classic-with-an-edge wood and acetate styles.

“We’re very proud of our partnership with Capital Eyewear and our exclusive collection of sunglasses,” says Paul Grangaard, CEO of Allen Edmonds. “Unique, handcrafted products of this quality are exactly what our customers come to expect from Allen Edmonds.”

Capital Eyewear is known for creating unique sunglasses right in San Francisco. That Made in the USA ethos pairs perfectly with Allen Edmonds, who still crafts their shoes right in Port Washington, Wisconsin. Both lines focus on quality and construction, using the best materials possible. That means the Capital Eyewear frames are made with real American hardwood and premium Italian acetate. The styles may seem classic, but upon closer inspection, guys will notice that these aren’t normal shades. Instead, they’ll find classic silhouettes interpreted in cherry wood or walnut. The lenses are sourced from optic giant Carl Zeiss and every pair comes in a handcrafted leather case. Theres no big batches, no mass production and definitely no run-of-the-mill styling.

Together, Allen Edmonds and Captial Eyewear are working together to give guys an alternative to big brands and mass market design. And the one thing you won’t find anywhere else? Each frame has an exclusive Allen Edmonds crest on the frame. It’s a small detail that only guys in the know will notice — but that’s what Allen Edmonds and Capital Eyewear are all about.
