£60.00 — ex VAT

Case for spectacles or sunglasses, made in London, with bark-brown vegetable-tan leather, and an antique-brass Sam Brown fastening.


The case fits average-size opticals, with a length of 6", a height of 2.4", and a depth of 1".

The case is made to fit and protect an standard-size pair of sunglasses or spectacles. It has an all-round gusset, to create room for the frame, and a large flap which extends to almost the complete height of the front.
The case is lined with the reverse of the same leather, which creates a sort of soft suede effect on the inside. The outside edges of the case are buffed and polished.
It is made from a thick, bubble-textured vegetable-tan leather, and softly fastens with an antique-brass — as in, not shiny — Sam Brown stud.

Makers of

The case is made by a small, family-run workshop on the one street anywhere in east London which still qualifies as gritty. Old cutting and sewing machines, small workbenches, and four or five workers work below ground in an environment so gen-uine and leathery you can taste it in the air.
