Glossy Black Eyeglasses Favored by Jazz Legends!
Whether you wish to personify a Mississippi Delta Blues giant, a New Orleans Jazz legend or simply like to "mix it up Chicago style", adding tinted lenses to these frames makes them the perfect Jazz sunglasses to radiate your inner cool. These shiny black zyl frames, with their rhythmic angles and sense of self-satisfaction, were first made prominent when worn by the inventor of BeBop, the brilliant jazz artist Dizzy Gillespie. In recognition of Dizzy Gillespie's gift of a new popular style of frames, we named our frames 'BeBops' after his musical invention.
Bebops are styled after bold black frames worn by jazz greats like Dizzy Gillespie.
Our BeBops are truly authentic, made from mold casted, metal reinforced Zyl resins. The color is achieved by using European tincture and glaze to achieve the glint in the black. These frames can also be made into genuine "Blues Brothers" style sunglasses by simply adding a dark shaded lens color and UV filters.
Many celebrities have adopted the BeBops as a symbol of independence, strength or non-conformity that they want associated with their persona. Just think of the glasses you naturally associate with Woody Allen, Arthur Miller, Spike Lee and Malcolm X. Indeed, you'd need an encyclopedia of pop-culture and distinguished figures in modern history to adequately gauge the diverse crowd of notables who have chosen to affiliate themselves with these classics.
You'll love wearing BeBops. They're great as cool prescription glasses, and they do the trick as trend-setting readers too. In either case, you can also have them made into cool sunglasses, with a bifocal or other lens of your choice.
