Tom Hardy stars as both Ronnie and Reggie Kray in new film Legend about the notorious East End gangsters.  Distinctive metal combination frames help to differentiate the look of the two brothers.  For a similar vintage original frame try the ‘Altor‘ or for a more contemporary look the ‘Roy‘.

Mr Sloane

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Will Mr Sloane ever get his life together?  Followers of Sky Atlantic’s new series Mr Sloane will be tuning in Friday night at 9pm to find out.  While eagerly anticipated this romantic comedy, created by Robert B. Weide and starring Nick Frost, won’t appeal to everyone as Mr Sloane’s antics are totally cringe-worthy!  True to character, slightly behind the times, Mr Sloane wears glasses of the 1950s while the rest of the world is speeding into the swinging sixties.  Here are our picks that best match his classic retro 50s and metal combination eyewear choices.
