The CADDIS Metamodernist Scout is a lightweight metal frame with a light matte finish. It has tinted gradient lenses - it is not a sunglass reader. We’ve added sewn leather temple tips to make the tops of your lobes feel naughty, but if that’s not your jam, then the tops of your lobes can also feel distinguished. Two possible transforming feelings…one material. How do we do it you ask? It’s not easy.
Follow me down to the lens configuration…watch your step…
Rather than simply deliver a totally clear reader lens for nobody else’s enjoyment but your own, we’ve dipped these lens in a steamy bath that is one part Chrysler Cordoba and one part Pam Grier. The tint begins clear at the bottom of the lens, and increases in strength towards the top of the lens. The end result is an orchestrated visual representation of that exact moment when Burt met Sally and we all dreamed a little dream of Trans-Ams and escaping the law.
As you begin to recognize the need, and eventual addiction, to seeing things clear again, you’ll want to upgrade and have a pair of +1.50 around. There are times of the day where the extra boost is welcomed.
More than likely, you’re already a buyer and user of corrective eyewear, so from here on out, you have some idea of what you need. More times than not, your first rodeo is not with a set of +2.00. You’ve probably flirted with the tower of shame at CVS, Walgreens, Krogers, etc.…the one that sits between the Dr. Scholls display and the Sonicare refill kits. You probably didn’t feel all that awesome…our goal is to change all that.
