EYE WEAR Trend No. 6: Wood:
Organic materials are being introduced heavily into men’s lifestyles (interior design and apparel). Today, many men are looking for a more sophisticated and classier look. They’re tired of products that resemble a cluttered look, over-engineered.
Wood frames have been around for a while, but they are just now gaining popularity due to the variety of great frame companies out there offering them.
You might think of wood frames as super delicate. However, the wood has all been treated in special ways and many times layers of wood are bound together to form a super-strong material combination.
These types of frames look great on men due to their subtle, natural colors that lend well to providing a casual, but also professional look. They are certainly a statement piece too, as each wood frame’s grain is unique.
Wood Trendy Frames are also easy to care for (surprisingly). Simply keep them away from bodies of water, and you should be good to go!
Wood frames will naturally absorb your skin’s oil over time and develop a slightly darker look than when you initially bought them. This is part of the process of a frame that gives it character.
EYE WEAR Trend No. 7: Rimless:
Rimless Trendy Frames are for guys that want to see well but have that look and feel like nothing is on their face. For some, Trendy Frames are a fashion statement, but for others — it’s just a way of living life.
You might think of rimless eye wear as having nuts and bolts and screws. This nostalgic eye wear has come a long way since then. Rimless Trendy Frames are made from high-tech materials, have slick designs, and can give a man that handsome look he’s after!
There are a few key benefits of rimless. One worth mentioning is the degree of customization you can do. The temples come in longer sizes, the bridges in different widths, and the lenses in any size imaginable.
There are no physical restraints on the size of the lenses you can choose from. They can be made extra wide for larger men or super small for the slender guys out there.
Trendy Frames back in the day used to come in 3 different sizes. But, that’s not the case today. Most just come in one size, leaving you hoping for a good fit.
When you’re being fit by an optician for a pair of rimless Trendy Frames, it’s like getting fit for a suit. Every piece of the frame can come in different sizes — so you’re able to get the perfect, comfortable fit looks good and is unique to you.
Rimless frames have some notable engineering that goes along with them. Most are not just built with nut and screws. That’s the old school way (which is still pretty cool!). The new age rimless Trendy Frames use different ways to attach pieces like ultraviolet glue, 3D printed parts and plastic compression pieces.
A good rimless pair of Trendy Frames are made from stainless steel or titanium. These are strong, flexible, and the colors of the metals will never fade or turn green from corrosion as nickel-based metals do.
A big trend in rimless Trendy Frames is geometric shapes. Lenses that are shaped like octagons, hexagons, and even circles make cool statements for eye wear. Picking out your lens shape is the most fun part of buying rimless Trendy Frames.
It gives you the creative freedom to see what looks best on your face. Also, when you update your prescription lenses the following year, you can change your lens shape if you get bored.
Rimless Trendy Frames can last for an eternity if you take care of them. Don’t be afraid of the eye wear is too fragile. That is a total myth! Keep in mind, you don’t need big, sturdy Trendy Frames for durability. The flexibility of rimless Trendy Frames and minimal parts makes them resilient to most accidental damage.
EYE WEAR Trend No. 8: 3D Printed:
There’s something inherently masculine and exceptionally nerdy about a frame designed using computers and technology. 3D printed Trendy Frames are matte finish, lightweight, resilient, and feature a palette of colors that wouldn’t be found in your typical Crayola box.
You may have heard about people using 3D printers at home to craft items, but did you know they are being used to make useful things like eyewear? Now, these 3D printers that are used to make Trendy Frames are the size of a refrigerator and much more industrial.
The way 3D printing for eye wear works starts with a frame designer coming up with the architectural plans for the eye wear. This plan is then programmed into the computer, and lastly the 3D printer prints them.
After the eye wear is printed, several things going on behind the scenes to make them look great. You can’t just put them on your face after 60 seconds of printing.
The process is complicated and highly detailed! After printing, the eye wear has to be dyed to the desired color Many times the Trendy Frames are rough and needs manually sanded down to create a smooth surface.
