Sleepers Speed Shop, a Costa Mesa-based automotive custom shop based specializing in hot rodding vintage and modern Porsches, is partnering with Japanese eyewear company Native Sons to produce a limited duo of classic Mckowski frames. The collaborative frames come in two colorways featuring gloss black frames. One design features honey tortoise temples and rose-colored lenses, which help with visibility while driving and lens glare, while the other incorporates mid-green/mil-spec olive drab lenses that reduce eye strain in bright light while increasing contrast in low-light situations.

Branding elements are seen through gold foil Sleepers eeEye and Native Sons motifs engraved on the right lens and inner temples, while technical features include medical-grade titanium cores with 16k gold-plated core wires, 4 barrel hinge accents, and hypoallergenic Takiron cotton oil acetates. Both sunglasses arrive in a custom fiberglass case referencing Porsche racecars and engines of the ’60s and early ’70s.

The Sleepers Speed Shop x Native Sons frames will be available on May 20 at 11 a.m. PST at the Sleepers and Native Sons websites.

Elsewhere, Arc’teryx Soho adds an artistic touch to the Beta AR Jacket.
