The use of wood has been quite popular lately in sunglasses. The latest ones comes from the Drift Eyewear Timber Collection.

The Drift Eyewear Timber Collection is probably one of the few sunglasses with a design that's all about practicality in addition to style. Founder Chris Mantz incorporated the architecture curtain wall technique onto the shades, which allows for an even distribution of weight on three contact points of the face. This also prevents them from sliding down to your nose and the wood from snapping. Each of the items were made from timber that was removed from a renovated building in the Meatpacking district of New York City.

The glasses from the Drift Eyewear Timber Collection are stylish, and the clever design concept behind them ensure that they are built to last.
