WHAT WOOD I DO TO SEE YOU?

20110914-finds-0101Since Genterie Supply Company opened at 210 E. Vermilion this year, snuggled between The French Press Café and Recycled Cycles, men in Lafayette have found a place to shop that doesn’t assume Ed Hardy gear is fine dressing. The clothing is simple and masculine without being pretentious or overstated. Great, carefully made apparel along with knives, wallets, shaving supplies and sunglasses are also offered. These sunglasses are handmade in Portland, Ore., with designer Shwood engraved on the arm of each pair. They feel surprisingly light on your face, allowing it to breathe, unlike heavy plastic frames. Genterie carries three styles: Govi, Canby and Oswald. Each has a different shape, including one reminiscent of an aviator style. Some are made of zebra wood and some of stained walnut, and the price varies on style and whether the lenses are polarized. All have that nifty double-spring arm for more give and less chance of breaking. Prices range from $100 to $150. Shwood’s sunglasses are eye-catchingly different without being obnoxious. — Anna Purdy
