Here is Alan from Sunderland, UK by the River Wear next to Durham Cathedral. We realise it is a picturesque
scene but we also understand that you can't take your eyes off his 1940's/50's Windsor frame by Algha that we
fitted with our Klasik Brown mineral glass lenses. Nice Tootal scarf too, Alan!

Here is Martin from Leigh-on-Sea again - (see below). He was so impressed with his web site purchase, he took
a trip to London a few Sundays ago to visit our stall. Of course he was spoilt for choice, but pounced on these
crystal NHS frames from the 60's. Then he took them snowboarding in Norway! Too cool for words, Martin!
James from London is a tall guy and need a large frame - he found a perfect fit in this late 60's/early 70's pair
from Spanish makers, Barbudo. We happily fitted James' lenses and he kindly sent us his photo. Good choice,
Sólon from São Paulo need some cool sunglasses to wear driving in all that Brazilian sunshine and went for these
English 1950's Algha frames fitted with our Klasik G15 mineral glass lenses. Now he is okay to keep the top down
in his fabulous 1960's Shelby AC Cobra. Says Sólon : "Thanks my friend. Few days ago I received my sunglasses,
very nice!!! Now I got photos with my Cobra and the Sunglasses, good combination. Hope you can use it in your
site gallery."
Our pleasure, Sólon!
This is Wild Evel from Austria. He bought this 1960's Rodenstock frame from us at our Sunday stall at Old
Spitalfields Market here in London. Wow - great look Wild! (If you also like Wild's look, check out his bands

Martin from Leigh-on-Sea, UK went for class and purchased this classic timeless pair: Danté, by Oliver
. Although made in the 1960's, it looks like it could have been made this season. And where better
to wear such sunglasses royalty - the Trooping of the Colour...oh, okay, it was just the rehearsal. But this was
no doubt the better weather day.

Sunglasses - thanks again. Great addition to my U.S.A.A.F collection. Sincerely, Richard."

collectibles, he's wearing a 1940's Bausch & Lomb AN6531 and it is the Type 2 shape with the paler (50% LTF)
lenses. Chocks away, Richard! (Or the US equivalent!)

Thanks for a great service; lovely specs, we'll definitely be back for more."
