$109.00 SOLD

 Measurements

These classic men's grey plastic vintage eyeglasses are in mint condition and ready for prescription lenses or sunglasses. The bridge is marked ''50 - 22'' and the arms read ''FOREMOST 145 U.S.A.''. The plastic has a nice sheen with no cracks, crazing or discoloration and the rivets shine bright.

This is the Foremost Hi-Note in a very unusual, very cool medium gray. This frame is unused vintage stock, never worn and never had lenses. Foremost was a very popular brand in the 1960s and that's when these were made, probably in the middle of the decade. Strong seven-barrel hinges, broad, paddle-style temples, clear bridge tabs (still clear, too!) and that great zyl color and finish all make these really super frames.

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. nLens 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.
