Danny Mills in Feb31st!

Back in December, we held our Christmas Showcase event and were thrilled to welcome the fantastic, Danny Mills. An ex-pro footballer, who played for Leeds and England, and played every minute of England’s five matches in the 2002 World Cup, and just a genuine all round nice guy, who has done some incredible work for the charity, Shine.

It was the perfect chance to introduce him to our latest brand at the time, Feb31st. Beautiful wooden frames, that can be completely tailored to your favourite colours and your wardrobe.

He tried on a lot…including some that didn’t quite work…

And he took the chance to meet the Ian Wright 3D head!

But after all of that, we managed to find an incredible pair of frames for Danny. A strong shape that Danny wanted in a deep green wood, with red accents – to complement his dapper wardrobe!

And so the process began. Feb31st carved these glasses especially for Danny. The perfect shape, out of the perfect colours, and then even carved his name into the side – so there was no mistaking who they belong to! They personalised the glasses case, with a sample of the wood that they used and again, intricately carved his name into it.

Danny’s reaction when he came in to collect them was fantastic, and it really highlighted how incredible this process really is. It’s a wonderful journey from when the client first walks through our door, to when they come back to collect this precious parcel.

And that was that! Danny Mills could now run free with his bespoke glasses, and he were smitten when we saw on Sky Sports!!
