The BoyZ are Back



Here’s hoping this world comes up with a better name but for now they are Gen Z, and the last time you saw THESE kidz was four years ago when Finn, Gram (my son!) and Eamon had just formed a rock band called The Pillows. They are STILL pushing the envelop on that elusive power chord, intent on ruling the world in their (Red, White and Blue) NIKE MOTO Style EVO0610 from Marchon Eyewear. Don’t forget to put in your thoughts as to who might best represent the ultimate beSPEC’ed Millennial so 20/20 can reveal that eyewear icon in the December issue on these Parting Glance pages. Just e-mail me at jspina@jobson.com and may the best GenEYE win.
