Black Owls were first requested by fashion conscious customers who saw them in trend-setting movies and on television. Although these top quality round black eye frames are today's sizzling style, in actuality, men and women of fine taste have been wearing them for years. Clarence Darrow and J. P. Morgan favored Black Owls. In Hollywood, Spencer Tracy, Humphrey Bogart, George Burns and designer Edith Head wore round black eyeglasses because, like a magic spell, when you put on a pair, you convey an image of strength, confidence and wisdom. Do Black Owls actually make you smarter? Probably not--but people will think you are.
