Vinylize – Think different

The philosophy of the modern firearm as an inspiration for Caliber Optics

words Editorial Staff

After breaking the rules of conventional eyewear by making frames from old vinyls, Zack Tipton, founder of Vinylize, introduces the result of his last challenge: Caliber Optics, a new collection of unique frames made by fusing performance metals with up-cycled, spent ammunition casings. The first line, called 357, presents a series of characterful new frames which incorporate spent cartridge cases as a counterweight. Each brass casing is machined and washed before being inserted into the temple tip of 357 frames.
