VINTAGE RETRO – STYLE MEN’S EYEGLASSES

IMG_3995

This pair could be a mate to another that I found last spring.  The other was tortoiseshell, so these  black ones would be a nice switch-off.  I like the pearlized inside, too.

Although they may be only 20 – 30 years old, they were retro-style when made, designed after the styles of the 1950’s and early 1960’s.  Good, heavy construction, though, and strong metal hinges.  These will last a long time, too.

Definitely a worthy addition to the collection.

WILD FIND – I LOVE ‘EM! MID-CENTURY “SCHOOLTEACHER” EYEGLASSES

These are a little bit scary, but I wear them once in a while for fun and the prescription is almost exactly what I need, too!  That’s a real plus, not having to remove or change the lenses.

What a rare find.  Still a cats-eye style, but not as exaggerated or embellished as some were.  I was lucky enough to find, several years ago, a pair of Ray Ban Cats sunglasses also with a prescription that suits.  Ah, the delights of skulking through dark alleys in search of . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
