    Sirmont Frame

    A throwback style inspired by the fashions of the ’50s and ’60s, the browline frame is characterized by the accentuated top line which is designed to mimic eyebrows.

    This crossover between a Boston and a Sirmont has a bold round shape, softening the often masculine appearance of this style.

    Premium lenses

    All Shinzo Tamura frames feature premium polarized TALEX lenses, handmade in Osaka, Japan. The filter is designed to block 99% harmful UV rays - helping you keep your eyes healthy and see clearer.

    Perfect fit

    The non-slip nose-pads are made from skin friendly elastomer, providing the perfect fit. Flexible titanium arms relief pressure, and give Shinzo Tamura frames a distinct and classic style.

    Light & durable

    Shinzo Tamura frames are perfectly balanced, ultra light, and made from non-aging nylon material, perfect for an active lifestyle. The double-molded frames are flexible, extremely durable, and do not deform.

    The hinges are molded into the frame itself and benefit from the flexible and durable properties of the nylon material.

    Just got back from a skiing trip and I have to say, my Amethyst Contrast lens sunglasses were a game-changer! The glare suppression was incredible, and it really made a difference when navigating the snowy slopes. The unevenness enhancement feature was a bonus, making everything clearer and more defined. These sunglasses are now my go-to for all my winter adventures!

Highly recommend for anyone looking for timeless style and superior clarity!
