Good Weekend at Goodwood Revival 2015

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

Roope Vintage had a blast at Goodwood Revival last weekend.  There was interest in our glasses from a new generation of vintage enthusiasts and we caught up with some familiar faces from St Albans.  As always the atmosphere was fantastic and we received wonderful feedback about Black Eyewear and Robert Roope’s designs.

Lord March, owner of the Goodwood Estate and racing enthusiast, wears classic specs befitting a gentleman who founded Goodwood Revival.  We’ll be there again this year enjoying  a great weekend of historic motor racing with a side of vintage fashion!

Goodwood Revival 2014

Friday, September 26th, 2014

The Goodwood Revival is not only the world’s most historic motor race meeting but is also the only meeting to be staged completely in a nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

Every year Robert Roope heads to Goodwood with vintage eyewear and his own collection, Black Eyewear.

Here are a few of our favourite moments from the weekend:
