A really great Taupey brown fade to clear frame for my hipsters, both guys and gals. Comes in 2 frame sizes.

This is a great vintage frame. Pretty square and a perfect shape for a rectangular, square and oval face.  I've got it in 2 sizes: average and petite to average.   Please read specs below to determine the right width for your face.  The only significant difference between the 2 sizes is the overal frame width, lens width and temple length.  Height and bridge only differs by a millimeter or 2. 

These are NOS (new old stock) made in the late 70's by OIT (Optical Import & Trade) Company in Italy.

The frame is a hazel taupe brown that fades to practically clear. And the best part are the hinges.  They're tough strong spring hinges.  Frame is acetate, the temples are long, 5 3/4" (145mm) on the average pair and 5 1/4-5 1/2 135-140mm on the petite pair.
