Tom Cody Interview

I had the pleasure of hosting my friend Tom Cody, founder and designer of Zero G Eyewear, at the store on Friday.  He made the trip from California to show us some of the new frames he has designed.  I will have more on those designs as they become available, but my purpose today is to write about my on camera interview that I produced while Tom was visiting with us at Hicks Brunson Eyewear.  The video will be available to view in the coming weeks, and is part of my project to introduce you to the people behind the eyewear that you will find at HBE. I asked Tom about his unique hinge design, because I have been amazed...
