Living in Washington, I figured I need to wear glasses that had some character, and so opted retro-period glasses because they are a prime example of classic (debuted 1949) American design and manufacture. They help, I think, with my geek cred, too.
I've mentioned them before but today, I've seen them in three movie ads, a bourbon whiskey ad, and a promo for a new kind of television set. Both Malcolm X and Colonel Sanders wore them. The model is the Ronsir Zyl by Shuron.
See more here. You know you want them. (As I ease back into post-Thanksgiving blogging.)
