The Bespoke Dudes Eyewear

What we think

TBD caught our eye (pun absolutely intended) through Fabio Attanasio’s eponymous Instagram presence; we knew that a man this committed to menswear would make for a fine partner – we were not disappointed. What we really appreciate – and indeed, this is the cornerstone of our philosophy – is his support of the small craftsman. No flashy logos – just unadulterated, uncompromising elegance.

Their story

Fabio Attanasio’s reputation in the Milanese sartorial scene precedes him. As a fervent admirer and executor of Neapolitan tailoring, his classic outfits convey a sense of understated refinement. His popular online menswear blog, The Bespoke Dudes, is a manifestation of everything we hold dear at Bombinate – a focus on quality craftsmanship and stepping out of the mould of mainstream dress. It should come as no surprise, then, that Fabio’s latest venture, The Bespoke Dudes Eyewear, is a perfect culmination of the values he believes in. Handmade in Italy, TBD’s offerings hark back to a time where painstaking craft was front-and-centre in the world of luxury.

The process

The contrast between TBDE's outstanding attention to detail and accessible pricing is one of a kind, and endearingly so. Each pair of sunglasses, created by Mazzucchelli Vaere, a heritage-led manufacturer, is a unique, handcrafted work of art. Frames are stamped out of a sheet of acetate or fashioned from metal, creating a rough shape, and then filed down to create the precise design. This is where most of the handwork lies: paring down the plastic, creating fluid transitions between the various parts, and then polishing the end result. Inspired by a legacy of Neapolitan tailoring tradition, TBDE celebrates classic designs with modern twists, and the effort that goes into producing them.
