Masunaga has always impressed me with their top notch quality from their 7 barrels titanium hinges to their rich Japanese acetate. Over the past year I have watch them slowly expand their all titanium range into a thing of beauty. It includes a variety of looks to satisfy anyone who has a discerning taste for the finer things in eyewear design.
This week I am looking at a new Masunaga model named Basie. When I did a Google search I could not find any images of the famous Jazz Pianist Count Basie wearing glasses, but I'm sure this is the kind of look he would have appreciated. With a thick brow-line design it has a horn rim or combination look a little something like Malcolm X wore, but instead of a plastic rim this frame is all titanium. In my opinion no one knows titanium like Masunaga, and this titanium design crafted to perfection.
