About Retro Vintage Sunglasses

While even in prehistoric time Inuit peoples wore flattened walrus ivory glasses to block harmful reflected rays of the sun, the earliest historical reference to sunglasses dates back to ancient China and Rome. The Roman emperor Nero watched gladiator fights through polished gems. In China, sunglasses were used in the 12th century or possible earlier. These sunglasses were made out of lenses that were flat panes of smoky quartz. They offered no corrective powers nor they protect from harmful UV rays but did protect the eyes from glare. Ancient documents describe the use of such crystal sunglasses by judges in ancient Chinese courts to hide their facial expression when they interrogated witnesses. Today, sunglasses with UV protection has almost become an industry standard, and there are a lot of tints available for sunglasses, and sunglasses styles are changing every year.

Retro vintage sunglasses refers to sunglasses frames that are more than 20 years old. So there are some vintage eyewear specialty shops sell used frames collected from old optical shops and other sources, some of which have never been worn. However, with their distinctive qualities of a past era, nowadays vintage eyeglasses were merely reproductions of those from past eras. However, the vintage label convey certain elements of styles as well. Popular vintage sunglasses styles include horn-rimmed frames in a dark color, often crafted of tortoiseshell or horn; the browline frames lying close to the eyebrows; Clubmaster frames had rimless bottoms and dark frames straight across the top; wire-rimmed aviator frames which wear straight across the top with rounded bottoms; Wayfarers are usually of tortoiseshell or black plastic, wire frames in round or modified squares with round edges. Round metal frames made popular by John Lennon are all sought after by vintage eyewear fans.

Even though there are variety of vintage sunglasses styles, choosing a suitable pair for your face shape should base on the doctrine that the fame should be contrast to your face shape, for example, a round or oval shape is usually the most appropriate vintage sunglasses choice for those with square-shaped or oblong-shaped faces while rectangular frames and other angular styles tend to complement round faces. Large vintage sunglasses frames are generally best suited for faces that are wide or long as they tend to overpower small faces. However, vintage sunglasses for women tend to have smaller frames than those designed for men. Women who find these frames inadequate for their facial features may opt for men's vintage frames in slim styles as these may prove to be more appropriate for their facial size and features.

Whether the vintage sunglasses are suitable for you or not, which based on your lifestyle. Those planning to wear their vintage sunglasses will find that selecting a frame in keeping with the dress style of their profession will prove beneficial, with cat-eye glasses more appropriate in informal settings while Aviators or horn rims are the vintage frames of choice in more formal work places.
