The KINO frame was triggered by the US prison issued glasses of the 1960’s. A classy handmade acetate frame featuring a stylish, almost flat brow and a comfortable saddle bridge.
In fear of being used to shank your bunkmate original frames from that era contained no metal. Technically improved Kino features a robust 5 barrel metal hinge & rivets. Perfectly designed for both Sun & RX.
The Kino is a criminally dapper frame.
