(Portland, OR.) Experimental eyewear brand Shwood introduces the latest eyewear and accessory collaboration with California clothing and lifestyle brand Iron & Resin. The collection, titled ‘The Moto Collection’, features ‘The Kennedy’ riding glasses and ‘The EDC Tank Bag’. The partnership between Shwood and Iron & Resin was a natural fit as both brands share a deep appreciation for the balance of style and utility.
The Kennedy Riding Glasses were inspired by motorcycles and the originality and spirit living within them. The glasses reflect a raw yet refined aesthetic, along with the functionality required of riding glasses. The magnetic clip lens allows for effortless versatility – providing a seamless way to go from polarized to clear lenses. The Kennedy Riding glasses are available in two colorways; classic black and Havana.
The EDC Tank Bag is a complementary Shwood x Iron and Resin on the road accessory. The sleek and stylish tank bag is designed to fit virtually every motorcycle on the planet. The bag is the perfect size to carry everyday ride necessities like glasses, phone, wallet, cameras, tools, etc and sits securely and conveniently on the tank of your bike. Made of 100% heavy duty, water-resistant cotton canvas, the tank bag features an ultra-high-strength, magnetic mounting system combined with a no-skid/anti-scratch Hypalon bottom, keeping the bag in place during the most aggressive, windy rides. The goal of the EDC Tank Bag is to provide a bag that is ideal for a day’s worth of adventure on the open road.

About Iron and Resin
Born in a small, Southern California, blue-collar beach town, graced with world class point breaks and seaside racetracks, where ghosts of a once towering oil industry still linger in the shadows. Iron & Resin is the brainchild of several friends who, after decades of collective experience building successful clothing brands, decided to turn back the clock and start anew. The result is a small, hand built collection of goods that draws heavily upon the founder’s own lifestyles and experiences.
Forged in California…In a mass produced, disposable world, Iron & Resin is a product of “one-off” culture. Where men still build, by their own hands, the craft they ride, be it water or land.
