Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Well, well, well... it's that time of the year again. Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and you may be asking yourself, "What do I get for that special person in my life? The one who loves eyewear?" Now, at this point you may also be asking yourself if my question was a little overly-specific and presumptuous. I am inclined to agree with you, but now it's too late! I've already gotten your attention and, if you please, I'd like to make a few suggestions. This first frame (pictured above) is a twist on the modern cat-eye sunglass.

Tom Davies - Horn

Our Face of The Week is Billy. He's wearing his round eyeglasses by TD Tom Davies, made from Asian Water Buffalo Horn and layered into a laminate of different colors.

Fathers Day Eyewear Gift Guide

In this post I am going to highlight four possible eyewear gift ideas; a pair of sunglasses, eyeglasses, ready-made reading glasses, and ready-made reading sunglasses.  I will start with the sunglasses. Sunglasses.  One of the coolest sunglasses I have seen in some time now is the Vinson by Leisure Society, and dad is sure to agree! [caption id="attachment_16516" align="alignright" width="543"] Image Source:[/caption] According to the Leisure Society company website this frame is "A vintage inspired “glacier glass” with reverence to the great mountain explorers who took on the ultimate opponent—nature. The round shape incorporates leather blinders at the sides, which protect the eyes by blocking the sun’s rays and harsh wind, similar to what would have been worn by...
