These are just amazing.  1980's Reminiscence brand cat eye sunglasses.  Reminiscence was an eclectic boutique located in Manhattan back in the 1980's.  These are extremely rare and you'd be hard pressed to ever find another pair like these.   They are pre-owned but in fantastic condition.  They're frame is made of layered acetate with sturdy 5 barrel hinges and wide paddle temples.  Undoubtably a great pair.  Made in France. Non Rx dark grey glass lenses.  

This squared cat will suit a narrow to average oval, oblong, heart shaped face.  My face is narrow and oval and they suit me perfectly.

I only have one pair,  and these are NOT returnable.  Please note the following information.

Wide paddle temples (or arms as some people refer to them as) are not for everyone. These flare out to 7/8" wide at the end. Wide paddle temples don't hug the ear,  but hug the side of your head behind your ear. You can adjust the temples yourself by dipping the end in a cup of boiling water that you just removed from the microwave.  Please wear leather gloves to protect yourself from the hot acetate.  Leather provides a good grip on the temple when giving the HOT temple a slight bend in the direction you want it. You'll either adjust it outwards or inwards SLOWLY.  If the acetate is not giving for you,  reheat the water til it reaches boiling point and try again this time leaving the end longer in the hot water.  Best to heat more of the temple than just the area you want to adjust. DO NOT attempt to bend the acetate unless the acetate is HOT.   The hot water won't melt the acetate,  it just makes it more pliable.  Once the acetate cools,  it cannot be adjusted.  The acetate must be warmed again.  DON'T try them on right after you've adjusted them.  Wait for the acetate to cool before trying them on.

DO NOT try and add a downwards curve,  the metal rod may poke through the widest part of the top of the end.  

Signature required upon delivery.
