For a vintage look you can’t go wrong with a monocle.  Eyewear doesn’t get much more vintage than that!  They can add the finishing touch to a fabulous retro revival outfit or you may simply find one incredibly useful as did a recent customer who purchased one to aid his map reading.  Roope Vintage offers both metal and acetate monocles on a cord.  They can be purchased as seen or fitted with a prescription lens.

Something about a monocle brings to mind the comedic upper class gentleman or German military officer.  Worn in England from the 1830s onwards monocles are still sought after today and have become well-known and recognisable accessories to various icons and celebrities.
