Each season, we have another retro “it” look to love – and this fall it’s the brow-line silhouette. This style of designer glasses has peppered vintage-inspired fashion for quite some time, but it has been showing up everywhere lately in the news and on TV, spanning the decades from the 1960s (Zachary Quinto in American Horror Story: Asylum) to today (The League‘s Nick Kroll).
Recently, The New York Times’ T Style Magazine highlighted this frame type in its annual Men’s Fall Fashion issue. Here’s what contributor Alex Tudela had to say:
Like so many trappings of midcentury maniliness, brow line eyeglasses – the kind favored by Malcolm X – have landed in the hipster bargain bin. Leave it to Tom Ford to rescue them with [his] exquisite version made of gold-plated metal and water buffalo horn, the way they used to be in the 1960s. (The horn componenet even comes with a certificate of authenticity, along with a special cleansing cream.) The only thing that’s not midcentury about these limited-edition frames is the $2,950 price tag.
Yikes! While these Tom Ford eyeglasses are stunning, not everyone can afford such a high-priced item. At Vizio Optic, we have plenty of similar styles that are more budget-friendly and feature the same high quality you expect from well-known luxury brands. Here are some of our favorites:
Lafont Constance eyeglasses – a more feminine option.
