In 1979, I walked into a legendary boutique at the center of Dallas’s historic shopping mecca. There was a beautiful glass display case containing four pairs of impeccably crafted sunglasses. Each was hewn from the finest hardwoods, artistically detailed and finished to an estate quality. I bought a pair and rarely took them off because they made me feel like a million bucks.

After some years, I set the sunglasses down and walked off without them. I was never able to replace them. But, I never forgot how special wearing them made me feel.  It is that same joy of use I seek to capture by creating Morning Wood Glasses.

I see similar feelings in the faces of my family when they wear their frames and know the journey has been worthwhile.
