The Way I See Things

You've probably noticed from my "profile" picture (and any other pictures of yours truly) that I favor aviator-style glasses. I developed a taste for these back during my days working at Bausch & Lomb.

I recently received an interesting piece of correspondence from one of our catalog subscribers, wherein it was suggested that my glasses must be several decades old and that I should perhaps consider switching to a more current style to woo younger customers...

Being a man who has stood by the fashion statement of bow ties through thick and thin, I'm not one to lose sleep over the trendiness quotient of my eye wear. In fact, the glasses I'm pictured in are current, new frames - and I went to rather great lengths to obtain the "vintage" aviator style I prefer. Anyway, who's to say the aviator style won't be the next big thing in retro?
