Dubbed “By Any Means Necessary,” renowned retailer Commonwealth recently aligned with Shinzuki Takizawa and Tommy O’Gara’s Native Sons imprint to reimagine the quintessentially classic “John Q” frame. Paying homage to the retro specs, the collaborative frames throw a spotlight on an indigo cellulose acetate top and navy-tinted ultraviolet fortified lenses. Luxurious accents surround the piece as hits of hand-polished 16k gold plating line the frame, bridge, and temple. A respectful take on the iconic ‘50s-style frame, Commonwealth and Native Sons apply an assortment of imaginative accents — creating a unique, one-of-a-kind contemporary design. Accompanying each and every purchase is a sharp dually-branded case. The limited edition Commonwealth + Native Sons “By Any Means Necessary” “John Q” model frames will hit Commonwealth storefronts and online shop as of July 17.
