  • The classic eighties pair of sunglasses -

    who didn't have a pair? I've still got mine! And

    love them!! These are in much better condition

    though - they look hardly worn. [Mine are

    terrible: chewed, chipped and well loved.]

    This was the pair that summed up a generation

    and they still look great on everyone who tries

    them on. Of course, Luxottica (who now own

    Ray-Ban) still sell these today, but of course

    they haven't got the Bausch & Lomb lenses -

    and someone even told us that the original lozenge

    plaque is no longer integral to the hinge, it is

    merely a glued on piece of decoration. Indeed!

    NB - this is the rarer 24mm (larger) bridge: the

    22mm was much more common, so for those of

    us with a slightly wider nose, this pair is perfect.
