Shwood x Iron & Resin Redefine The Iconic Kennedy City

Apr 24, 2019

Category: Style

Shwood is a well-known name when it comes to eyewear, especially the time-tested head-turners that most guys resort to when they’re looking to stand out from the crowd. Now, the company has joined forces with the heritage lifestyle and clothing company, Iron & Resin, to update the Kennedy City — one of the eyewear industry’s most popular silhouettes.

To recreate the tried-and-true Kennedy City glasses, designers from both Shwood and Iron & Resin decided to focus on a shared ethos: the idea that no matter where you are, what you’re doing, or what’s being created, there must be a purpose. To give the newly adapted silhouette a reason to exist, the companies decided to reach far beyond aesthetics. Built specifically for Iron & Resin’s latest Moto Collection, the Kennedy utilizes the company’s new ultralight “Memory Metal” clip-on lens frame alongside Italian cellulose acetate, barrel German hinges, and a set of premium CR39 lenses that offer 100% UVA/UVB protection. As a result, these contemporary sunglasses offer wearers a sleek, lightweight fit that’s perfect for two-wheeled aficionados everywhere. And if you aren’t the motorcycle-faring type, don’t fret — they’re also perfect for general, everyday use.
