You will often see browline style frames today being called the clubman style. The reason dates back to the 1950’s when Artcraft made a very popular browline style that they named the Clubman.
The Zero G frame I am wearing above is called the Sands Point, and it is certainly one of the more comfortable frames you will find in this category. You see, Zero G frames are hand crafted at Masunaga Optical in Japan from flat sheet titanium. The precision detailing is incredible.
