The frame shown is marked ''48/24'' and the arms read ''FRAME FRANCE SM TOMMY 6'' ''. The other frames are marked according to size. The plastic has a nice sheen with no cracks, crazing or discoloration and the silver side rivets shine bright.

This is the Tommy model from Shane-Michael Optical in a great dark tortoise, dating from the middle to later 1960s. They've never been worn or had lenses and some will come with their original frame bag, too. Nice smooth bridge, very strong five barrel hinges and thick rims and temples. Super frames, ready for lenses and fashionable service.

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.
