Vintage Glasses

Vintage glasses are often confused with retro glasses.   Although “vintage” and “retro” sound similar and are two descriptive labels for styles and objects such as eyewear, clothing, and cars, they are very different in their actual meanings. Vintage glasses and vintage sunglasses were actually manufactured in the 1920s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Vintage glasses are regarded as original and authentic.  Retro glasses are recently manufactured with a mixture of design elements that draw on the past, but using current modern technology and components. Both retro and vintage glasses can be fitted with prescription lenses.  If you are looking for truly vintage glasses, there are web sites that sell vintage eyewear frames.  These vintage glasses are the “real thing” manufactured by such well-known eyewear companies, (some who still exist today) such as Shuron, Frame France, ArtCraft, Marine, Imperial, Liberty, Fosta-Grantly, Tura, and Ray Ban.  Most vintage glasses that are sold at these vintage glasses specialty sites offer the frames without lenses.  You can then send the vintage glasses frames to Eyeglasses.com and we will fit the lens to the frames.
