MasterChef 2015

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

New series of MasterChef, new glasses for Gregg Wallace.  If you’re a fan try the Black Eyewear ‘Lester‘ or ‘Pepper‘.

Week 1 contestant Tony has already impressed and we think he could go all the way, maybe it’s the specs?  They are very similar to the classic Anglo American 406 seen here.

Arthur Miller was an author and playwright of great acclaim best known for The Crucible, Death of a Salesman, and A View from the Bridge.  He also received notoriety for his marriage to Marilyn Monroe in 1956 and the testimony he gave to the House Un-American Activities Comittee.  He was a specs wearer and, like the name of the film he wrote, a bit of a misfit.  Here are some frames of the 1950s similar to those he and his wife wore.
