Mike, from Manchester, UK, went for this great American Optical frame from the early 60's they called
Manhattan. (We have another pair on the site in a different colurway - check out men's frames.) We think Mike
looks pretty cool - perhaps not as tortured as Bill Evans - but definitely in his company. Keep up the piano
lessons, Mike!.

summer. "They were a hit!" said Carla when she sent us this photo. 1930's translucent shaded amber plastic
frame, unmarked. Original mid-brown glass lenses.
Josue, from California liked the look of these 60's European sunglasses - and why not? They're by German
frame makers Helmecke and are fitted with Zeiss Umbral 85% abs lenses. One of the best you could buy at
the time, we reckon.
Omaira, from UAE was looking for some Ted Lapidus classics having seen them on Nicole Richie - we were
pleased to find her this pair - translucent shaded aquamarine marked TED PAIDUS PARIS ORIGINAL FRAME

Walter, from London is turning out to be a regular customer - here he is two years ago after purchasing a 1970's
B&L Ray-Ban Caravan
in black. Sadly he lost those so he has just bought another pair we luckily had in stock.
Says Walter, "I am extremely grateful to you and would be even more so if you could devise a foolproof method
of avoiding losing them. I'm such a dodo. Up klasik is all I can say!"
Another regular customer, Linda from San Jose is showing off one of her three pairs of Ted Lapidus sunglasses
she's bought from us - here in the Mojave Desert near Las Vegas. Black plastic frame marked Ted Lapidus Paris
Original Frame France TL 10 01.
Davide, from Surrey (UK), was so impressed that he could still find an original 1980's B&L Ray-Ban Wayfarer,
that he bought two - one in black and the other in tortoise. He couldn't model them both, so he asked his wife
Marcia to help him out. Too bad Brazil were as unimpressive as England in the World Cup!
"Greetings from West Palm Beach. I had these exact Vuarnet sunglasses for 20+ years and broke them before
Christmas 2005. I had searched far and wide without luck trying to replace them. Your site is great site, terrific
communication and fast fast delivery. This picture is the best BeBe and I could take. Not sure which of us is
uglier. Many thanks! Steve."

Richard, a regular customer from Florida, recently bought some 50's American Optical shades, but before he
did, he sent us this photo of him in a previous purchase, the 1980's B&L Ray-Ban Clubmaster, which as you
can see, being a combination frame, has a very 50's feel about it. That Florida sunshine really agrees with Rich!
