Portland Eyeglasses is our in-house, private-label line of eyewear. We have partnered with one of our favorite manufacturers to come up with a line of eyewear that has the design and craftsmanship of eyewear costing hundreds of dollars more. But, because it is our own label, there are no designer licensing fees or middlemen, most of the price of these Portland Eyeglasses frames comes from the precision German hinges, Japanese Titanium, the quality of the acetate (a cotton based plastic) and metals, and the design and craftsmanship of the actual frame.
The manufacturer we work with to create the Portland Eyeglasses line is one of our favorites. They are inspired by the Japanese word for artisan, Shokunin, taking pride in the craftmanship and attention to detail as their work comes into being. They believe that the products they create should contribute to the improvement of our society, even if it is just by increasing the comfort and confidence of the one person who will wear the pair of eyeglasses they are working on at this moment. This, combined with their over fifty years of design for the European fashion world is why we are so proud to have partnered with them on this project.
Most of the Portland Eyeglasses frames are based around timeless eye shapes that have stood the test of time. Then, modern styling and design have been layered on top of the classic shapes to create a unique look. The Portland Eyeglasses line allows us to offer a great combination of value and style to complement the unique Japanese eyeglass frames for which we are better known. All of the Portland Eyeglasses frames can be used for sunglasses, but we also have a line of Portland Sunglasses that takes advantage of the same relationships to create our in-house line of sunglasses.
