New Merch Monday: The Actor Bifocal

Round glasses typically denote greatness. Think about it – Sigmund Freud, Mahatma Gandhi, John Lennon… Harry Potter.

Before you laugh, consider this: all of those individuals are masters at what they do, whether it’s psychotherapy, civil disobedience, music, or dueling magically with evil wizards.

Where am I going with this? Somewhere, I promise. The spotlight for today’s New Merch Monday is on a pair of glasses that combine the implied greatness of round lenses with the creative style of an artist: The Actor Bifocals.

You may have seen glasses like these on several Hollywood stars lately, most notably Mr. Johnny Depp (who, by the way, was recently voted one of the Top 25 Most Stylish Men in the World). With three Oscar nominations, numerous blockbuster films, and countless other achievements, Johnny Depp is at the top of his field, and he has the style to back it up. These glasses denote both intelligence and creativity. They seem to say, “There something amazing going on in my head…just wait.”

Just like Depp’s glasses, the Actor Bifocals feature round lenses, dark frames, and stylish gold detailing at the temples. The lower half of the lens magnifies from a power of +1.25 all the way up to +3.00, ensuring that you can see small text clearly, whether it’s the newspaper or your latest script. The clear top portion of the lens, on the other hand, means you can wear these glasses all the time if you want to.

Somehow I also think that at $16.11, these glasses just *might* be a little less expensive that the ones Johnny Depp wears. Make sure you check out the black and tortoise versions of the frame, too – let me know what you think!
