For well over a decade now, 20/20 has taken great pride in noting that men’s eyewear has stepped to the forefront in style impact and substance of a guy’s personality. Men love their glasses, taking great pride in the distinctive looks, shapes and colors of the frames they dare and care to wear. It's now been ages since we’ve stepped away from the bland unisex styling that was right for no one. Eyewear fulfills an intense function in the vision scenario. Specs decide and define one’s personality. Men know that. We’re here right now to show… Modern Men in 2020 in 20/20.
