Sutro eyewear has released a limited-edition version of the original Sutro Hetfield frame that is the product of a design collaboration with James Hetfield of METALLICA. Featuring a special version of the Sutro 3Click hinge in black nickel finish, black mineral glass lenses by Barberini of Italy, and a black leather slip case hand-stitched by Mulholland in San Francisco.
"James has been a great supporter of what we do, so we wanted to build a special edition of his frame," Sutro says in a statement. "We sourced a blackened nickel finish for the hinge, choose mineral glass lenses for their superior optics and durability, and got our friends at Mulholland to craft a custom leather case."
Each frame is boxed with a set of collector cards — marked with the frame number in the series. The production run has been limited to 800 frames worldwide.
Founded in 2006, Sutro is an independent specialty eyewear maker based in San Francisco.
Sutro eyewear is sold through specialty boutiques and optical stores in the U.S., Europe and Japan.
