In their own rights, eyewear maker Shwood and motorcycle lifestyle brand Iron & Resin are established names in the men’s fashion world. Now, the two brands have brought their best elements together in the form of the Shwood X Iron & resin The Moto Collection.
The two-piece capsule combines the Portland company’s quirky eyewear designs with the California cool style of its southern brethren. It all unfolds behind the inspiration of long motorcycles rides up the Pacific coastline.
It starts with the Kennedy riding glasses, which are magnetic clip-ons easily remove to adjust to surrounding light. They have a “raw,” unfinished aesthetic and are available in two colors: classic Black and Havana tan. The polarized lenses are CR-39 Carl Zeiss Vision models and feature 100% UVA/UVB sun protection. The glasses are “Slim-Line” designed to slide in and out of your helmet easily.
To protect your new shades (plus the other inevitable valuables you have on your person), they’ve also created the EDC Tank Bag. It’s a heavy duty, 100% cotton canvas with a pigmented PU water-resistant coating.
The bag has logical zipper and pocket systems to keep everything locked up and dry, while integrating easy attachment to plastic tanks or using a high-strength magnet mounting system. It’s meant to stand up to whatever the day’s ride throws at you. As the collaborators make clear, “The sleek and stylish tank bag is designed to fit virtually every motorcycle on the planet. The bag is the perfect size to carry everyday ride necessities like glasses, phone, wallet, cameras, tools, etc and sits securely and conveniently on the tank of your bike.” So you shouldn’t have any trouble on your first ride sporting this collection.
The new Swhood X Iron & Resin Moto Collection is a nice 1-2 punch for riders who need that solid balance of durability and style while on their bike.
