The Optimist

A collaboration with David Coggins in celebration of the fly fishing life beautifully articulated in his book The Optimist. These oversized aviator frames summon the spirit of the great American outdoors crossed with the Gonzo 1970’s. With an infilled bridge, an enhanced top bar and flared detail to the nose we have elevated a classic shape into something distinctive and memorable. Crafted from a mid brown Mazzuchelli tortoiseshell acetate and fitted with a Polarised Warm Brown English Made lens. The temples have been tapered and ear tip extended to decrease the chances of slipping when casting your line or running in the surf.
