Timeless and Elegant Straight-Temple Rimless Frames
The Traditionals rimless bridge is a flattened version of pince-nez glasses worn by Teddy Roosevelt and recreates the look worn by successful leaders of the Gilded Age. These frames are truly distinctive due to the updated and exquisitely formed flattened bridge, yet they offer the easy-to-wear "hockey stick" shape temples of more modern frames.
If you are not yet sold on these treasures, you ought to consider whom we saw wearing frames like our Traditionals. When we investigated college campus life for suggestions about the frame styles we might offer to our customers, our researchers were surprised to discover that frames like these were often found on the faces of the most attractive members of the university community. Their traditional "T" fitted hardware to hold the lenses, and rigid design makes these rimless frames about as sturdy as frames can be made. The temples and bridge are non-allergenic due to substantial coats of lacquer over dark bronzed-gold Monel metal, and extenders at the joinder of the temple and lens allows these frames to fit comfortably on any face.
