Capo Sunglasses – Tortuga

Capo Sunglasses – Tortuga


In stock

The original brief for the sunglasses was for them to be something an East London gangster, escaping justice to the Costa del Sol, would wear in the 1970s. Usually when we meet suppliers and make requests like this we get a weird, raised eyebrow and that ends that. However, our new friend Ben, who hand makes each and every pair of our frames, knew exactly what we meant… we won’t ask how.

Ben has crafted these beautiful frames from a vintage blue, navy, grey and brown acetate which we gravitated towards because it incorporates the classic TRiCKETT colours. As you have probably guessed by now, we have very specific interests here at TRiCKETT and one of those interests is hinges. Specifically, glasses hinges. These hinges are so tough you could probably hang a door off them. They are also drilled through the acetate by the eyebrow and temple for extra ruggedness… no glues around here.

Just because we love a nice detail, each pair of glasses is embossed on the inside of the arms with the ‘TRiCKETT’ name and ‘Handmade in England’. Every pair is made to order and manufactured by Ben in his workshop and comes with a leather case which is hand made (again) by our mate Matt in Burnley. These glasses are designed to last a lifetime and even come with a lifetime guarantee. They will even come wrapped in a vintage Cuban cigar box, just to make you feel even more like someone trying to run away from justice.

They aren’t cheap and you know that we wouldn’t charge loads for something that we didn’t truly believe in, but the Capo sunglasses are about as good as it gets for us.
