Ordering Measurements

The frames shown in the photos are a 50-20 frame, marked ''50 20'' on the bridge, ''50'' on the frame and ''REVELATION 5 3/4 SHURON USA'' on the temples. Other frame sizes are marked the same way, each according to their sizes. The temples shown are Shuron's Slipper style, but please note other temple styles are available, too!

This is the Shuron Ronsir ''Revelation'' frame in grey briar and silver, one of the traditional colors for a combination frame. The Revelation is a new style from Shuron in the last couple years, a slight modification of their classic Ronsir frames. The tops and temples are the same as a Ronsir, but the chassis, the silver section made up of the bridge and rims, you'll notice the lenses have a lower profile than the classic Ronsir frame. I've had several customers wanting a nice, generous width in a Ronsir, but then having challenges with the lens height. The Revelations address that challenge and worked well for those fellows, so here they are in the Attic!

Temples are measured their full length, hinge to tip, as though they were straightened out. Why? Because they're adjustable, so measurements to the bend will vary based on who wore the frame. Lens and bridge measurements are from lens edge to lens edge. Hinge to hinge is measured from screw to screw.

The frames shown are a 50 - 20 - 5 3/4'', but the Ronsir Revelation comes in a variety of sizes, all listed in detail here. They also come in black, black briar, golden briar and tortoise. They really can be done in any Ronsir color and to order one that's not shown, just make a note in the ''Comments'' section during checkout that specifies your color choice. The turnaround is quick and I make sure items are checked thoroughly before they leave for your address.

 

TEMPLES: I stock the standard adult men's temple length of 5 3/4 inches (145 mm) and 6 inch (150 mm) in both the ''Taper'' and the ''Slipper'' styles shown below. There's also shorter 5 1/2 inch (140 mm) and very long 6 1/4 inch (158 mm) lengths, available in both styles. The Slipper style is associated with earlier models of the Ronsir and other makers also used the same style early on in the history of combination frames. The Taper style is more of a 1950s development. There also cable temples, one called the ''Relaxo'' and similar in shape to the ''Taper'' and one called the ''Aztec'' - all metal - inquire for details on cable temples.

These are nice frames, well-made and a nice version of the classic Ronsir. They make great everyday glasses or some very cool sunglasses.
