A personal favourite of mine, the Ed is a classic 1950s clubmaster style browline frame. Great shades for a serious & manly yet stylish aesthetic.

The Union is a unique design inspired by 1970's welding glasses. Slightly more angular & rugged than we're used to seeing from Han, but still manages to maintain the authentic & vintage style. Nice!

Beautiful wayfareresque shape, but in a more low key & stripped down design, Paul Senior defines Han Kjobenhavn's timeless yet modern aesthetic. Simply Awesome!

Some very exciting news this week, among other thing such as the latest drops from Vans Vault & Han Kjobenhavn, our first batch from highly coveted Japanese denim brand Momotaro has just been delivered!

Woven on vintage shuttle looms from extra long staple Zimbabwean cotton & dyed to perfection with pure indigo. It is a beautiful weave, heavy 15.7 oz & coarse with slight slubs & irregularities & a surprisingly soft hand. Designed to produce a unique, natural & vintage looking fade.
