After losing a pair of pricey sunglasses at a football game, our lead designer Nate Justiss had an a-ha moment. It was the year we founded Distil Union, so he disappeared into our workshop and hacked together a simple fix using a pair of shades he didn’t really care about messing up.... 6 years later, Nate still has those DIY shades!
