Introducing our new range of radically engineered SPINE Optics glasses frames for men.The SPINE mechanism fits any face shape, grips constantly with the lightest touch, and closes automatically when you take them off.

Read on to learn about Spine’s technical innovation, and see us in-store to experience the comfort and style.


Inspired by the interaction between vertebrae, SPINE solves age-old hinge limitations. Unencumbered by traditional parts and manufacturing processes, SPINE strives to out-think the competition. Globally patented, you can be assured there is no substitute, so don’t accept one.


The spun wire cable is the heart of the SPINE Optics hinge. It’s diameter is a mere 0.60mm and at full tensile strength can hold over 300kg. The dual springs not only provide the pulling power of SPINE, but they allow the articulation of the vertebrae and enable our unique auto-shut mechanism.


There are 5 working SPINE vertebrae constantly interacting seamlessly with each other to create a 90 degree hinge opening. As every element helps the other to take the strain, they rotate only 18 degrees meaning they share the load, making wear from friction virtually non-existent.

Spine Optics hinge


Inspired by vertebrae these micro injection metal (MiM) hinges flex to fit any face shape, they constantly grip with the lightest of touch and when lifted from the face temples shut automatically.


There are no screws loose here – because there are no screws used in SPINE Optics working mechanics. Accidental impacts are glanced off as SPINE moves in all directions, absorbing and dissipating shocks thus greatly reducing breakage.

The arrival of this technical label further cements our reputation as Tamworth’s eyewear style destination. See the collection in-store now.
