Reduced from $95 Clark Kent's Christopher Reeve wore these back in the 80's. A large panto styled squarish round with a high bridge. 52-19-140 Handmade Sanford Hutton Colors in Optics eyeglass frames.

Style name is 'BENZ'. Black lined in blue.

Late 70's and 80's oversized frames are back in vogue. Perfect for progressive/tri prescriptions.

I am a licensed retailer of this line of eyeglass frames established in 1978 by President and Designer Sanford Hutton. This line is found in high end optical practices and optical retail shops, and considered one of the most stylish, and trendier of designs for a moderate price range. These classic frames were part of his original line-up, and the styles I am carrying were highly in demand, after they appeared in the film "Annie Hall" starring Diane Keaton, and "Amercian Gigolo" starring Richard Gere.

30 something years later, Sanford Hutton has re-launched this original vintage collection, and I am proud to have chosen these styles to offer to my buyers, here in my shop, at an attractive price. The acetates are Italian, and the glasses are assembled and polished by hand. Each pair using top quality hardware, that would cost you at least $300 in an optical shop if you could find them. Only available here, at Retro Focus Eyewear.

Their prices are 2/3rds less than your local neighborhood optical shops. Visit their website. They never turn down any of our optical frames. Our frames are guaranteed with a free replacement or refund in case the lab damages them while they install your lenses. No other optician would give you such a promise.
