Customers Around the Shop: Wences Ramirez

This is our new friend Wences. He owns an expert boat detailing service here in Seattle, called Bow 2 Stern. It’s down on Lake Union, and if EOF had a boat, we’d take it to Wences 🙂 His new carbon fiber, rimless frames are pretty stinking cool.

What you might notice is that you can really see his lenses in this picture. That is because there is no Anti-Reflective coating on his lenses. We did this on purpose. Wences is around a lot of chemicals for work, and that can lead to peeling and cracking of coatings on the lens. Anti-Reflective coatings work very well for most people, but in some cases it’s better to go without.

Frame Arrival

Got some new frames in today…something a little bit different this time. The temples are actually made of carbon fiberREAL carbon fiber, not faux carbon fiber, not carbon fiber textured, not carbon fiber wrapped, but REAL carbon fiber. I know it may not seem like such a big deal, but these are really really cool in person. Standard rimless format with such a great detail, makes for a great looked dressed up or just hanging around in a t-shirt and jeans.
