If the name Globe Specs sounds foreign to you, it’s likely because the Japanese brand has never been made available in the United States. Until now, that is. Self Edge founder Kiya Babzani recently scoured the world to find the best in eyewear design, the search ultimately bringing him to the streets of Tokyo. There, he discovered Globe Specs’ well-designed vintage stylings and high-end craftsmanship – qualities that will be offered to the American public through the introduction of five frames. Each pair may be used as sunglasses or prescription glasses and are artisanally-made using the highest quality acetate, titanium and stainless steel. Comprised of collaborations with both Beauty & Youth and United Arrows in the form of The Johnson, The Monty, The Plebe, Montauk and Stevie styles, Globe Specs’ debut on American soil is available now exclusively at Self Edge.
