Traditional Rimless Frames with Flexible Coiled Temples
We put these cables on our Traditional Rimless eyegwear series because they are as elegant and traditional as a black-tie affair. The coiled temples keep the bridge and lenses snug and comfortable on your face without the constant inching southward down your nose as ordinary frames often do. When removed, the spring coil that forms the cable temple "snaps-back" into shape, retaining the classic look worn by elegant gentlemen and ladies dancing at formal balls during the Gilded Age. You can order your Tuxedos in your choice of lens shape and optical vision correction. Or order the frame only, with a demo lens shape to guide your local optician in creating your final lenses.
Our customers are never shy about asking for a frame style that they could not find anywhere else. But the sheer number of requests for rimless eyeglasses with traditional coiled temples was unprecedented. In response, we sought to create coiled temples that met our exacting standards for authenticity, comfort and durability. After meticulous research and various designs for historically correct coiled metal cable temples, our high standards and commitment to quality (not to mention our customers' demand for excellence) have been rewarded with our Tuxedo Cables.
Classic Tuxedo Rimless cable temples stay securely on your face when you're puttin' on the ritz!
* NOTE: RImless lenses can be made up to 4mm larger, applied equally to both Lens Heigh and Lens Width.
