A grunge genre dream. 2 1/4" diameter oversized cobalt blue round sunglasses in a tortoise frame. Made in Italy. Hipster and indie lovers as well as wandering bohemian souls and boho beauties will fall in love with these. 1960's true vintage.  This is the first vintage pair I've come across that is this large.  They're very rare and hard to find.  Riveted barrel hinges, a sturdy frame. 

These are pre-owned.  There is one minor flaw to the clear outer coating on the bridge which has worn off from years of laying these glasses upside down.  You an see a lighter circle smack in the middle of the bridge.  It can be camouflaged with the right color enamel which I don't have (nailpolish would work).  If your head is smaller than wide,  the temple ends will need to be adjusted inwards and at a deeper angle (65 degrees or so) to hug your ears so they don't slide down. 

Only one available here at Retro Focus Eyewear.
