Belstaff announces a special collaboration with handcrafted eyewear specialists Native Sons for an extremely limited collection of the highest quality frames presented in three colourways: satin black, antique gold & silver.

Only 70 pieces of the “Thompson” frames will be available globally, making them a highly sought-after and collectable piece of optical engineering.

Referencing Belstaff’s military-industrial heritage, the metal frames have been constructed in a weld-lug style using high-grade titanium and have been antique plated (16K) incorporating Native Sons’ signature hand-finishing processes.
The temples are of a paddle configuration set to a length designed to maintain tension on the temporal protrusion just behind the ear to make them robust as well as comfortable.

Each of the 70 frames were handcrafted in the small town of Sabae, Japan, by theLIGHT Co. Ltd, a highly specialist eyewear atelier founded by Shinzuki Takizawa and Tommy O’ Gara, under the skill of by master craftsman Hiroaki Kobayashi. All aspects of the frames have been purposely built in-house, guaranteeing quality control at every stage of production.
