Yeah..... so I love bold specs... I look for them in my everyday travels, and wonder if there are souls like me, who would wear what they want, with the one sole purpose of making themselves happy.

I firmly believe in surrounding yourself with things that bring you joy.
If being thick and bold does it for you, then come stand behind these.
One of a kind, hard to find geek hornrims, not too big, not too small.

These are vintage 1960's frames, in a blonde to brown tortoise.

Clean, heavy duty, 7 barrel hinges.
In perfect working order.
Frames are ready for your prescription.
No lenses.
Marked LIBERTY USA .
New, unused vintage 60's stock.
Straightened and ready to try on.
In excellent condition.

Aprox. Opthalmic measurements as follows:
Frames measure 5" across, tip to tip ( about 127mm).
Bridge DBL (distance between lenses) is 23mm.
Distance between the keyhole bridge space is about 13mm.
Measurements taken across the center of the frame.
Lens width is aprox. (1 5/8") 42mm.
Lens height is aprox. (1 5/16") 33mm.

Generally, full square specs look good on oval, long faces, like mine.
I'm the gal in the photo.
Narrower, rectangular specs look best on rounder faces.

Please make sure your optician will happily fill your prescription, with frames you walk in with. I guarantee that my frames are optical quality.
Experienced, seasoned opticians will know how to fill and adjust these frames properly.
Online lens replacement labs are generally cheaper than brick and mortar eyeglass chain stores when it comes to filling your prescription.

Kindly read my eyewear guide, under my shop policies, or follow this link.

These frames are great quality, and feel good in your hands, comfortable, and are higher end acetates, that any optican would love to fill with a sunglass prescription, or your clear, everyday prescription. These would likely sell for about $300 in a high end optical shop.

Comes with a protective case. REMEMBER~ Measure your own frames, and compare to my measurements for a sure fit, cause not all heads/eyeglasses are the same size :-))

I realize the difficulty of buying eyewear online. I am happy to model any pair, and give you some guidance. My vintage eyewear is returnable within 7 days of receipt.

Your Homework assignment is:
Ask for photographs of me wearing them, (if necessary).
Please measure a pair of your own frames, to see if these will fit you,
as not all heads are the same size.
Print out this listing, and make sure your optician will put lenses into frames that you walk into their establishment with. Many are not taking kindly to this, as they will tell you just about anything, to get you to buy their own frames.
If they tell you that they cannot do it, take these babes elsewhere, or send them to an online optical lab. Many online places will happily do it for less.

I have a second business on the internet, selling reading glasses, and eyeglass frames, for 10 years, and I have heard it all, seen it all.

Kindly read my store policies, as there may be information there, that pertains to your order.
