Let’s make this perfectly clear. The true revolt into style for men occurred when Britain cautiously waited nearly 200 years before re-invading America with The Beatles and a backing force of literally thousands of pop, beat, rock, blues, punk and new wave groups. Well, put your glasses on because the assault continues. And when those ever so mod (even when they are/were sometimes seemingly safety pinned) lads gander in glasses, those specs are STILL always highly identified as in perfect taste with just the right amount of “proper” verve.
