Young Gentlemen of London circa 1930

In pre-war London, the fashion of the day for young men was bowler hats, high-collared shirts and double-breasted long coats. If you were suitably outfitted, your friends and colleagues would say you're "just ducky!" which meant you look fine. Though the phrase has fallen out of use, we chose the name Duckies for these frames because of the top quality and "just fine" compliments you can expect when wearing them.

Our version of the Duckies are much more proportional, with the height measuring 40 mm and the width (eye size) a nice, 45 mm. All together, they are an example of the hottest new trend in eye wear, for both men and ladies.
