Vintage 60's American Optical
AO Hornrim Safety Glasses w Pivoting Metal Mesh Shields American Optical Early Vintage 1950's Eyeglasses Industrial Steampunk Goggles

*****SOLD*****A great pair of frames that appeal mostly to the guys... Most would wear these at work, or just for the cool factor which there's plenty of it in this pair of versatile specs.  The sides pivot and fit over the inside edge of the frame.  To fold the frames, pivot the shields towards the bridge.  Their frame color is a tannish-light yellowish grey. Pre-owned in excellent condition.  Polished, straightened and ready for your own Rx if you choose.

For an average sized adult head that would look best on a square, oval, rectangular face.  Temples are nice and long.  The lenses are non Rx, signed AO at the top of each one.  Though the coating on the lenses has been wearing off and there are scratches on them.  Replace them with clear polycarbonate UV scratch resistant lenses for only $50 at ReplaceALens.com.  Only one available.  Here at Retro Focus Eyewear.

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. Only we do.
