The correlation between everyday carry gear and stylish accessorization might not always seem natural, but The James Brand has made it their mission to bridge the gap in spectacular fashion. Now, to blur the line even further, the outfit has teamed up with the iconic eyewear proprietor, Raen, to bring consumers an all-acetate collection.
The James Brand x Raen Coordinated Acetate Essentials Collection calls upon both brands’ most prolific offerings to create something inherently unique. James’ all-encompassing Elko pocket knife and Raen’s Wiley sunglasses have been paired, and dressed, in a proprietary tortoise acetate that was cut from a single sheet and made by hand, giving each item a stylish presence that’s both classy, and purposeful. The Elko stays true to its original construction, calling upon a durable 1.74-inch Sandvik 12C27 steel blade and Zyl acetate handle to offer unparalleled utility, while the five-barrel Wiley glasses come adorned in Carl Zeiss green polarized CR-39 lenses and a handmade Zyl acetate frame. You can pick up the corresponding collection on The James Brand’s website for $275.
