The Bespoke Dudes Eyewear
A patron of Italian excellence in sunglasses production

TBDE caught our eye through Fabio Attanasio’s eponymous Instagram presence; we knew that a man this committed to menswear would make a fine partner, and we weren’t disappointed. What we really appreciate – and this is the cornerstone of our philosophy – is Fabio’s support of the small craftsman. No need for flashy logos or big names; just unadulterated, uncompromising quality.

Fabio Attanasio

Fabio Attanasio’s reputation in the Milanese, sartorially-inclined menswear scene precedes him. As a fervent admirer and executor of Neapolitan tailoring, his classic outfits convey a sense of understated elegance. 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.

The culmination of everything we hold dear

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, TBDE’s offerings hark back to a time where painstaking craft was front-and-centre in the world of refinement.

Focused on delivering eyewear that satisfies both tailoring and casual looks, TBD’s classically designed frames offer a stylistic versatility, coupled with a number of smaller details that set them apart from the aforementioned eyewear titans. Produced by a small, traditional manufacture, Mazzucchelli Vaere, TBD’s ethos stays true to “supporting the little guy”.

A polished end result

The attention to detail while keeping prices very accessible is one of this brand’s finest traits; 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 is: paring down the plastic, creating fluid transitions between the various parts, and then polishing the end result.

At the end of the day, TBD is a well-rounded, highly considered purveyor of eyewear. With its foundation upon a legacy of Neapolitan tailoring tradition, it brings forward classic designs with modern twists, but all while paying dues to the effort that goes into producing a premium product.
