A timeless shape, revived with innovative technology: Ashlar pays tribute to the pioneering men and women whose tireless vision propelled man into space.
Boxy optical frames reached iconic status in the 1950s and 60s, when astronauts and engineers on the front lines of the space race made clunky glasses an essential component of the “geek chic” aesthetic that typifies the era. Ashlar retains the popular rounded trapezoidal shape of the late 50s, but introduces groundbreaking technological advances to render its frame in a modern weight.


As part of the DITA-LAMINATE series, the frame’s internal steel panel is chemically etched, plated, and hand-laminated between two sheets of lightweight acetate; this contrast-pairing technique takes up to three times longer than conventional methods, but results in blade-thin profiles that are thinner, stronger, and lighter than traditional acetate frames. The process is unique to DITA and executed by a skilled team of artisans working at the company’s production facilities in Japan.

The Temple Length (mm) refers to the length of the arms on either side of the frame,
in other words, the maximum distance from the front of the frame to the ear.
This is usually one of three standards — 135, 140 or 145mm.

The side should be long enough to sit comfortably over your ears.
Note that glasses with straight sides all the way to the end don't always have this measurement indicated.

The Bridge Width (mm) is the gap above your nose between the lenses.
It's important that this is comfortable — too tight, and the glasses could pinch your nose;
too loose and the glasses are likely to slip on your face.

The Lens Width (mm) or Eye width (mm) is the width of the lens, measured from the bridge to the end of the frame.
The size of your lenses can be a matter of personal choice, but it is also determined by your frame style, size and prescription.

Each of our product pages contain the specific frame measurements specific to that particular glasses frames.
