These classic men's black plastic vintage eyeglasses are in unused, mint condition and ready for prescription lenses or sunglasses. The frame is marked ''46 - 20'' and the arms read ''FRAME FRANCE NYLON ZYLOWARE 5 1/2''. The plastic has a nice sheen with no cracks, crazing or discoloration and the rivets shine bright.
This is the Invincible model from Zyloware, probably made in the middle to late 1960s. These are unused frames, never had lenses, never been worn. Fun find! There was a time this frame was a military issue frames in large part because it truly is almost invincible. The frame is made of nylon, which makes it nearly unbreakable. It can be bent into the shape of a pretzel and when you let it go it returns to the original shape. Another favorite feature about the Invincible is that there's a support wire in the temple ends at the ear. This allows you to shape the temple ends to match your ears, instead bending them and having them return to their original shape. This is a nice feature. Great frame, ready to go!
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 vary based on maker and adjustment. Lens and bridge measurements are from lens edge to lens edge. Hinge to hinge is measured from screw to screw.
All frames are thoroughly inspected before leaving the Attic. I'm thorough about condition so there are no surprises and these glasses are in mint condition. They'll make great everyday glasses or some very cool sunglasses.
If you have any questions about this pair of glasses or anything else, please don't hesitate to contact me. I try to answer all questions promptly.
Thanks for visiting the Attic!
