Piece On Earth

I know you've seen a lot of these before, but let this just be a friendly reminder when looking for a new pair of shades it's hard to go wrong with a shaped nose piece - and, no, that is not the official term.


-L.A.S

[Editor's Note: The official term is called a keyhole for people trying to keep their semantics tight.]

  1. I call it a keyhole. Have you seen the Allyn Scura Legends? I'm thinking of getting a pair, at $175 cheaper than the similar Moscot or Geller; http://www.allynscura.com/originaldesigns_index.htm > Mid-Century > Legend

    I keep looking at these Barton Perreira Baldwins, they fit in with these but the honey frame and green lens is a good play. Polarized to boot.

  12. The nose pieces are different looking on these sunglasses. I'm not sure if I like them or not. Does anyone know if they're comfortable?
