The impact of eyewear styles initially focusing on men has been so strong over these last few years that 20/20 decided to take another look at what’s trending, directly following the style feature from our previous double November/December issue.

The presence of these bolder, self-confident frames powerfully affects and allures everyone searching for the best when it comes to framing faces.

We decided to reinforce the classic side of the whole Guy Glasses look by tasking our still life photo maestro Ned Matura to “prop” the eyewear with his vintage MGB sports car.

The nifty car made for a great backdrop and certainly reinforced the theme that this eyewear is at once fresh, classic and set to stand the test of timeless.
