When Chris Mantz lost his engineering job, he poured his energy into his woodworking hobby. The result? His first pair of wood glasses, made from an old skateboard. He gave the next pair of hipster-meets-nature frames to a friend—who promptly broke them, of all places, on the Oscars red carpet. “It took a year to nail down the design,” Mantz says. “I’d finish a new pair and see how hard it was to break. That was my R&D.” He uses a table saw, drum sander and laser engraver to make each pair in this exclusive Timber Collection, and rigorously tests them in his Chicago shop.

The Whitewash was resawn from slats of picket fence. Transformed by years of sunshine and weather, each frame—one of only 100 pairs—pays homage to a nostalgic past, a once proud symbol of the American Dream. The wood was rescued by Chicago artist Raun Meyn. Free shipping.
