I’m about to go broke this in city. I think everyone passing through says the same, but one area where the Japan/Asian market somehow stays reasonable is in the eyeglass department. So while I’m here, I may as well do some frame hunting. I found the brand Buzz Roll through a small shop in Harajuku. The line is handmade in Sabae which is the optical capital of Japan. They ran me around 151$US which is a damn reasonable price for frames. May I add that the lenses they put in are some of the best optics I have looked through? No distortion field on the sides even with my heavy script.
I picked up a pair in matte black finish. I haven’t seen a frame in this color before. They’re thick, sturdy, and as the wooden display box says, “Made with Love” (in Japanese of course). Glass-1/one sells them online it would seem.
