    4. Richard Haines Creator on June 6

      Hi Guys! How is everyone enjoying their new shades? (Those of you that have them) We really appreciate the fact that some of you have chosen to leave a review on our website, means alot to read what you think of our glasses. We expect the Knight Silvers to be finished within two weeks so will send an update when they are done, as well as the Round Rx pair. Have a great day!

      Hi Mayur, your new Knights Black are in the post and should be with you monday/tuesday. Let us know when you have received them. :)

      Hi guys, received my glasses, they look absolutely amazing but unfortunately they arrived with a crack in the wood on the nose bridge area. I'd be happy to send you some photos if you can give me am email address. Would I be able to send them back for a replacement?

      Hi Bharath, for orders within europe and to usa we will not be providing tacking numbers. For orders to asia and oceania we will.

      If anyone would specifically like us to provide a tracking number then let us know and we will do that.

      Bharath Gelivi on March 31, 2017

      Will you be providing any tracking number once the order is processed?

    19. Richard Haines Creator on March 28, 2017

      Actually it would be great if those of you that we have sent to could let us know when you receive them. Thank you!

      @n4Shere

      Hi Daniel, very well at the moment.

      We have begun to send out some of the glasses, those which we have in stock. We will be doing this slowly until Kickstarter processes all the payments then we can go ahead and start to ship out all the pledges that were made for glasses we have.

      What do you think about the Kickstarter Backers page on our website? Anything you would like to see there that we may have missed?

      We are keen to gauge opinions from you guys....

      Hi, I'm a BackerClub member and I have clicked on Shout Out, pledged SEK440 (20% off the Stretch - Knight Walnut Silver). Did I pledge for it correctly to entitle for the STRETCH? Thanks

    28. Richard Haines Creator on March 3, 2017

      @Fanny Chau: we are working on it. We don't do the photography ourselves so the picture would have to be a mock up. Im talking with the company we use to see if they can put something together for us.

      Because this pair wasn't anything we planned but decided by our backers, we haven't got anything right now to show you.

      I'll jeep you posted though as soon as i know anything.

    29. Fanny Chau on March 3, 2017

      When will the picture of stretch goal sunglasses released?

    30. Richard Haines Creator on March 1, 2017

      Thanks for the input! Will apply them now :)

      +1 Fanny. Add them - looks great.

    32. Fanny Chau on February 28, 2017

      It looks even better on a person than simply image of product. Definitely add to the campaign page.

    33. Richard Haines Creator on February 28, 2017

      Hi guys! Hope everyone is having a great start to the week. Just wanted to reach out and ask if you all saw the photos we posted as an update?

      We took them as a request to see how the Knights would look on people as we have yet to get professional photos taken.

      Do you think we should add the photos to the main campaign page? Whats your thoughts?

      hahaha. great to hear. and i heard that the swedish men and women all look handsome :)

    35. Richard Haines Creator on February 24, 2017

      Hey! We haven't actually got any professional shots done of people wearing our new collection yet but our co-owner/designer/creator my wife Emelie is a dab hand at photography so we will try and get some photos out over the weekend.

      Unfortunately you lot will have to look at me wearing them but then again there are worse things in life ;)

      I will post an update when we post them.

      hey richard. is it possible to get more pictures of the sunglasses on real people? to get a feeling how they look like on different face shapes.

    37. Richard Haines Creator on February 21, 2017

      Great, thank you n4Sphere!

      i am happy with the new update and possible knight version. like the idea and think it is a good one :)

    39. Richard Haines Creator on February 18, 2017

      Hi Guys! The optical frames will come as standard with a CR-39 lens. If you wish to switch out the lens to a prescription one, you can do so at your local opticians. Its just to pop the lens out from the backside and pop in the new one from the backside.

      Fanny, we would be happy to include one of the Rx pairs in your reward if you like. Shoot me a message with which two pairs you would like.

    40. Fanny Chau on February 18, 2017

      Can there be a package of 1 RX mixed with 1 (knight/Janie etc)?

      yes this would be nice

    43. Richard Haines Creator on February 17, 2017

      The whole frame walnut with a silver mirror lens? I like it! We'll discuss it and release some stretch goals in the coming days. Thanks for your input, always appreciated!

      on February 17, 2017

      thanks. i was thinking of walnut also on the front for the knight for exampled. mirrored lens would be cool. i like blue lenses as well

    45. Richard Haines Creator on February 17, 2017

      At the moment we have our black maple with natural walnut as the frame and polarized black or polarized yellow REVO in stock.

      We would like to make more but that depends on funding levels. At the moment our sole goal was to get enough funding to be able to make our Round Rx optical sunglasses.

      As we still have 23 days to go we will be publishing some stretch goals with a view to making more of our current collection, plus some tasty treats thrown in.

      Would you have a preference for wood type/colour, lens colour? If we were to make that a stretch goal?

      thanks for the quick answer. any plans for different colours of frame and or lens?

    47. Richard Haines Creator on February 17, 2017

      Sure, the dimensions of the Knight are 51-19-138. So that's 51mm lens width, 19 bridge and 138 temple length :)

      please can you post the dimensions of the knight :)

    49. Richard Haines Creator on February 15, 2017

      Hi guys, If you choose the Kinights then you can either shoot me a message saying which lens you would like or wait until the campaign is over and the survey comes to let us know. Either way we've got you.
