During the late 50s and early 60s, the American counterculture movement arrived on British shores through literature (i.e. J. Kerouac’s On the Road in 1957) and films (i.e. The Beatnicks in 1958 and Beat Girl in 1960) The fusion of poetry, jazz, blues and street art loosened inhibitions and helped ignite the swinging 60s era in London. The 1392 is inspired by the uniform of the Beatniks, which included thick rimmed glasses, cigarette pants and roll neck sweaters. Its a squared round with perfect proportions; understated, yet immaculately formed resulting in a truly unisex style. Featuring a relaxed fit bridge and comfort milled interior, which favours both form and function.
