October 3 – 4
10 am – 6 pm
Last February we hosted our first trunk show with Nackymade in our Chicago store. In case you’re not familiar, Nacky is a maker of high quality eyeglasses based in Kobe, Japan. He offers a range of unique styles, shapes, and colors that is highly customizable.
Being a new partner with Nacky, I was naturally intrigued with making a pair for myself. Nacky offers three tiers: ready-to-wear, made-to-order, and bespoke.
I went made-to-order. The process is simple. I started by trying on and selecting a shape, of which there’s an extensive selection. I settled on round (personal preference).
Next there is size, color, temple, and the character at the end of the arm (dragon is the signature). The choices can be overwhelming, but it was a lot of fun working with Nacky and his wife Mocky. They couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. Their advice and guidance is sincere and easygoing.
I received my frames this week, and I’m absolutely delighted with them. They came out exactly as I had envisioned. After a few slight fit adjustments by Nacky, they feel extremely comfortable and light on my face.>
I also gave them my prescription for progressive lenses. For an extra fee, the lenses were made and installed in Japan. They’re by far the best lenses I’ve ever had. And it eliminated the step of going to a shop and waiting for them to be made.
Nacky and Mocky will be back in our Chicago shop on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 3rd and 4th, from 10am to 6pm, alongside our store manager Sean Moran. They’ll bring with them a selection of ready-to-wear frames and sunglasses available for purchase.
Please send us an email to email@example.com or call us at (312) 964-5345 to make an appointment. If you’re not sure of your schedule, feel free to stop in at your convenience. We’d love to see you (pun intended).
