These frames are brand new, though they're made pretty much the same way they've always made them. I have to tell you, they really are well-made glasses. (This is from someone who handles mostly vintage frames from the golden age of American craftsmanship, so I really have seen some of the best frames ever made, or at least I like to think so!) The finish on the new Ronsir frames is always well-done, the screws are cooperative and the plastic well-shaped and tough stuff. They do a good job on the little details, too, no dangling plastic mold-machine fragments or big solder blobs I sometimes see on contemporary frames. Well-made frames.

So, since these are brand new, what is different from Shuron Ronsir frames of yesteryear? The nose pads changed from bakelite / mother of pearl back in the late Forties, so they've been using clear ones for a long time. The nose pad fittings were recently changed, making it much simpler to find replacement pads. Besides that, they really are pretty much the same as they've always been! Great glasses, brand new, mint condition!.

How to measure for vintage frames.

Remember that temples are always measured their full length, hinge to tip, as though they were straightened out. Why? Because they're adjustable with a little heat and a good touch. Lens and bridge measurements are from lens edge to lens edge. Hinge to hinge is measured from screw to screw.

These are true classics in brand new, mint condition. They make great everyday glasses or some very cool sunglasses.
