    looking for frames with wood temples

    Hi, everyone. I'm looking for frames for a patient with wood or bone temples. I think he is leaning toward wood. We don't really carry them in our dispensary, but I have seen some, I know Calvin Klein makes them now, any other ideas? I'm sure there are a lot out there.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are some at It Eyewear. I don't remember their website but their phone number is 1-866-it-i-wear. I do not work for this company.

    Good luck to you!

    :cheers:

    Probably not cheap for a bespoke product, but I love this website.

    Valentino's mens line has wood temples - give Safilo a call. They are priced decently, look good and wear well. I've had a pair of the drill mounts for two years with no problems at all with the wood.

    thanks

    thanks everyone. i'm looking into some of these leads. i don't want to have to open an account with anyone and this person is in a hurry so a custom job is out of the question. how one can be in a hurry to get wood temples, i don't know! :-) anyway, thanks a lot.

    I think I just saw a few from VIVA and perhaps Kenmark.
