Steven Alan Monroe Sunglasses

Turns out Brooklyn isn’t only good for providing fodder for painfully out of date New York Times articles. It also makes some seriously great sunglasses. These Monroe Sunglasses from Steven Alan are handmade in the Borough of Trees (yup, that’s actually Bklyn’s nickname) out of plant-based cellulose acetate from Italy. Additional details include 100% UV protection lenses, custom engraved hinges and a free carrying case with microfiber cloth.

    Just received these glasses, and it turns out they’re made in China.

      Really? That’s distressing. I wonder if SA stopped making them in BKLYN…

    Do we know for sure that they were once made in BKLYN?
