A Visit to Plasticville—
You might call it plastic. We usually refer to it as zyl. But make no mistake: The masses have spoken and the key word when it comes to cellulose nitrate thermoplastic material (yep, that’s what it’s REALLY called in “The Dictionary of Visual Science”) sunglass frames is… BIG. The frames facing our stylish street-stompers make a huge statement in terms of style, protection and (future trend) projections.
