James Design Details
With a semi-rimless silhouette and a clean, contemporary design, James is a down-to-business, rectangular eyeglass that helps you create your distinctive style.
The nearly flat browline emphasizes your eyebrows. With a rimless bottom, the frame pulls attention to your cheekbone while enhancing your facial expressions. With the designer’s last touch merged into the tapered edge, the eyepiece boasts a bright look. Finely groomed end-pieces exude a complex personality with regular curves. Dark-tinted temple arms give attention-grabbing appeal to the eyepiece. With acetate temple tips, the eyeglasses offer a pop of color and texture to your look. James is a modern interpretation of the classic rectangular frame with an updated fit-and-flare silhouette.
Custom cellulose acetate and stainless steel are used to make these frames. Cellulose Acetate is a plant-based and biodegradable material. Acetate frames are flexible, durable, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly. It also preserves the style, colors, and patterns of James over time. Stainless steel glasses are lightweight, robust, and more resilient than plastic. Akulon-coated screws and barrel hinges enhance the durability of these frames. Polycarbonate, an impact-resistant material, keeps eyeglasses from shattering and breaking when subjected to various external factors. Treated with anti-reflective, anti-scratch coatings, James enhances vision and decreases eye strain. These high-quality lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, thus protecting the eyes.
