3D Magnetic Lenses

Putting on 3D glasses over a pair of your own can make going to the movies less enjoyable. Luckily, Eyeland Framemakers is now carrying custom made magnetic lenses by Chemistrie. These lightweight lenses are built with patent lens-layer technology that will transform a RX frame into polarized sunglasses, readers, 3D glasses or computer glasses with the click of a lens. Head over the Eyeland and take a peek at their collection of new spectacles and Chemistrie lenses.


A Study of Neopolitan Life


Fashion’s biggest month has finally arrived and we’re excited to see all the new collections at our neighbourhood shops. Menswear boutique, Neighbour, has received an exciting A/W 14 collection by O.Ballou. This particular line was founded by Simon Cato, who has worked with the oldest and most respected production facilities in Italy to balance traditional hand-tailoring and advanced garment techniques, while incorporating full grain leathers, fine wools, cashmere, silk, and other high grade materials. O.Ballou’s first full-fledged collection is one of the many new fall arrivals at Neighbour.


Did someone say Pumpkin Ale?

Since it’s the first week of September, why not kick off the new season with pumpkin flavour?. Steamworks Beer & Wine Store has stocked their shelves with Steamworks‘ highly coveted seasonal brew, the pumpkin ale – a malty-spiced ale brewed with pumpkin pie spices and 100 lbs. of pumpkin mash. Come get yours at their retail store located at 375 Water Street.
