Totally apropos that specs made in America log in here with an array of eyewear heritage details that are at once unique and respectful: tortoise, a minty crystal coloration and a deft partial “brow” accent.

So Brow’ed of You
The same pride-of-face that oozes from a clubman style comes to this CatEye in an ever-so-cool blend of youthful energy.

Into the Woods
With wood stems (truly a good reason to call temples that!) and a slim silver-to-gun P3 wire structure, this eyewear buttons up on the new direction in men’s specs so well.
ROBERT GRAHAM Polk from Revolution Eyewear
The ’70s attains feast status for eyewear trending that is shyless and staunch with attitude. It all feels so fearless here. We like and respect that.

Cat on a Hot Thin Roof
The “NOW MEOW” shape takes metal on a wild color prowl with enameling details, textured highlights and a mystery of curves.
EVOLUTION 4302 from Ogi Eyewear
Slate blue makes for exemplary face appeal with this upsized (yet minimalist) frame that adds dash with the split-level contrast of its double-bridge design.
DECADES Corrado from Mykita
It’s official: Metal is the newly renowned mainstay for men when it comes to specs and no one commands that concert
of direction better than style’s best rock star… John Varvatos. Hey. Study that bridge detailing, as hip as the (here hidden) cable temples.

Will Get Foiled Again
Back in the day tortoise made its face-friendly presence known with deft rim foiling. It’s Havana wonderful resurge.
TED BAKER B330 from Tura
An excellent (and svelte!) exaggeration of the popular ’70s soft pillow shape heralds Spy as actively engaging the empire of women’s eyewear.
SIMONE from Spy Optic
The shape purrs, the hidden crystal mint stalks and the jaggered marble zyl is encrypted with a romantic touch of crimson. ONLY Lafont could succeed in making that many “cat lives” thrive on a frame.
