Westward Leaning Founder Robert Denning’s premise for creating his line of sunglasses was social causes and progressive issues. The brand features a unique material on the frame’s temple, each in honor of a human achievement — from the bronze that brought us jazz in our Louisiana Purchase model to the spirit and legacy of democratic change in our Color Revolution model.
