A blog by Georgie Phillipa!

It’s always a fantastic start to the week when you are made aware of a blog post singing your praises!

We have been long term admirers of Georgie’s image, look, writing style and photography skills so to see her wearing and looking so amazing in Arlo Wolf glasses in her latest post was brilliant.

Georgie covers a wide range of topics including travel, fashion, beauty and lifestyle. All of her content is incredibly well written, witty and thought provoking.

The team here absolutely love her travel videos – particularly the one in Amsterdam – which has put the Dutch capital at the top of our mini break list!

Take a look here:

A lunchtime spent at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU)

As you know, we are a proud Manchester company and we love having local links with our community – from Barney Ibbotson who designed our lens cloths, right through to connections with Manchester Metropolitan University – this is something we thrive on.

Yesterday we had the opportunity to send Matt to a networking event at MMU. Arlo Wolf and other local businesses were invited to discuss the importance of team members, managing employees and the various types of leadership methodology which can be applied.

Charles Dhawa who is studying for a PhD at MMU reported his findings about his research topic of “Understanding People Management in Small and Medium Enterprises.” Charlie’s enthusiasm about his studies and his research undertaking was inspiring and every attendee left with a spring in their step.

Following on from Charlie was Zee Abualhamael who shared his own experiences of leadership and management styles from running his own business. Again, Zee was thoroughly entertaining and the anecdotes and relation back to leadership methodology really hit home and gave Matt a valuable insight which he has shared with the team at Arlo HQ.

Charlie is due to report further on his findings during 2019 and we’re very excited to see the outcome!



New Launch: The Apollo

Well, it is safe to say we are extremely excited about the launch of the latest Arlo Wolf style!

The Apollo is a funky round-eye shape which is made from super light-weight acetate with diamond detailing on the temple and front. Available in dark grey and deep red, the addition of a key-hole shape bridge provides a superbly comfortable fit.

Completing this look is a carbon fibre effect finish which really softens on the face. As with all our models The Apollo is available to try before you buy now!

Don’t forget to add your limited edition Arlo Wolf x Barney Ibbotson lens cloth!



Sunshine? In Manchester?

First things first. We love Manchester. It’s our home. But…..Manchester in the Sun is another level!

After what feels like the longest Winter ever we finally had our first weekend of glorious sunshine! Don’t believe me? Here is the proof!

In celebration, we decided to spend our Saturday in the sun-drenched Northern Quarter. As it was Record Shop day, the atmosphere was amazing with a wide ranging selection of music blaring across Stephenson Square long into the night which gave a real party atmosphere!

I must confess we did venture inside on one occasion, but when the pizza of Honest Crust in Mackie Mayor comes calling it’s very hard not to give in!

Will you start the fans please?


Saturday was our first team building day of 2018, and what better way to spend it than at The Crystal Maze experience!

The whole team are huge fans of the legendary 90’s game show and from the moment the music started when we entered the maze, right until we heard the immortal words “will you start the fans please?” this was a really realistic and fun experience. Our maze master Marty took us through the original 4 zones: Futuristic, Medieval, Aztec and Industrial with the conditions, sounds and games mirroring the original TV show!

We went down slides, crawled through tunnels and most importantly won some crystals!

Our stats were as follows:

Games Played: 16

Crystals won: 9

Lock-ins: 2

Time in the Dome: 45 seconds

Golden Tickets: 130


Arlo Wolf x Barney Ibbotson Lens Cloths

We are so excited to release our first collection of limited edition lens cloths, in collaboration with Manchester based illustrator Barney Ibbotson.

Barney is based a 10 minute walk from our offices and when we saw his designs we fell in love with the level of detail, thought and ingenuity which goes into each and every illustration. Barney’s illustrations have an emphasis on line, pattern, detail and colour and he personally has a keen interest in architecture, technology, science, history, cities, maps, football (Manchester United), music, and science fiction art.

We have selected two initial creations – the iconic Manchester Worker Bee (as a nod to our Manchester roots!) and a quirky, bold Skull design (as a nod to our eye sockets…which contain our eyes!).

Each lens cloth has a limited run of 500 and are now available to buy for £5. Simply add them to your order at checkout or shop here:
