Deluxe Combination

Zyl style. Metal mania. No need to choose. With the newest eyeglass frames the best of both worlds… and more is right there for the selling. Don’t just think monel paired with zyl. Think huge TV screen-style acetate fronts coupled with chunky, chain-link titanium temples. Check out striking buffalo horn married to stainless steel… or stainless steel intertwined with NXT, a high impact-resistant plastic. Note stunning jewel-encrusted endpieces adorning zyl or leather temple inserts on metal. It all makes for a masterful balance of high tech and high fashion.
