Mann Blackwood
Available in-store only

East meets West in the form of Mann, a modern wayfarer that infuses a quintessentially American silhouette with the unique historical signature of Japanese calligraphy.

The frame’s unique contrast of volume and lightness draws upon the deliberate strokes of kaisho, an ancient artistic form that requires years of practice and extraordinary discipline to be mastered. Using DITA’s unique chemical annealing process, the lightweight acetate frame is rendered in a groundbreaking stainless steel core lamination process; the end product is 50% thinner than traditional acetate and more than twice as strong. Custom titanium nose pads and meticulously sculpted earpieces ensure that the artistry reflected in Mann’s design extends to the utmost in comfort.

*Lightweight acetate frame
*Ultra-thin acetate only 3.4mm thick at temples and 3.5 mm thick at the front frame
*Temples have scived/chamferred edges
*Custom stainless steel wire core
*Sculpted earpieces
