Vintage 1960s white plastic framed sunspecs.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
These are soooo sixties! White plastic frames - to match your boots - and I believe the lenses are plastic too. The nose pieces are pbbreviated, by modern standards, but these sumglasses still do the job they were designed to do!
Of course, sunglasses at the time were much less sophisticated than they are now...polarising sunglasses arrived during the late sixties, and those offering protection from the sun even later. These shades are simply that - tinted to prevent major damage or squinting.
The lenses themselves are just off circular; the frames tend towards the winged shapes of the fifties. In good condition - in particular, there is no sign of scratching on the lenses - they measure approximately 5 ½ inches/14 cms at the widest point, 4 + 1 ½ inches/10 + 4 cms at the arms (straight + curved pieces).
