Japanese eyewear brand Jins is coming to San Francisco in 2015. The Tokyo-based line will bring its extensive range of glasses —over 1200 styles of frames— to the former H&M Men's space at 151 Powell sometime next year. Though the company has 300 stores globally, it will be the first location in the U.S. There's no word yet on whether (or when) the San Francisco store might carry the company's new Jins Meme glasses that alert you if you start to fall asleep, but we'd be shocked if the high-tech frames didn't find their way to our wearable-loving city.
