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!

years later, marked B&L Ray-Ban USA and fitted with B&L's G15 (pre-etched) glass lenses.

Peter from Dayton, Ohio, bought an outrageous pair of 60's Mod Foster Grants and very kindly lent them to
Patty when they recently attended the F1 in nearby Indianapolis. Although Peter is looking cool in his Persols,
we think Patty stole the day.
