Thickly rimmed, round glasses were a popular fixture on many well known architects like Phillip Johnson, Le Corbusier, and I.M. Pei. It is only fitting that we called these rounded, full framed readers The Architect! This plastic style comes in solid black, tortoise, or a two-tone with clear frame, and look stylish on both men and women.

At last, reading glasses with some style!7/4/2016
Comments

I'm a professional proofreader so I put my reading glasses through their paces, but it's nice to finally find a pair that don't make me look like someone mugged me and stole my sense of style! I now have three pairs of Architects, one for my office, one for the den, and one for my purse. They look terrific, the field of vision is so large that I'm looking through corrected lenses, no matter how far down on my nose they slide (my nose's fault, not the glasses'), and they're so reasonably priced, I can put them everywhere. I couldn't be happier with my Architects.

lose my prescription glasses too easily to pay for replacements so tried premade and bought these. From the day I put them on months ago there is hardly a day that I do not get a compliment from someone (usually in a fashion retail setting) I refer to them as my Harry Potter glasses and some have asked me where they can get them. I am not young but these give me a lift ad make me feel fashionable. wish you still had the half/clear model as I could buy them. also wish they came in a slightly higher magnification.

I'm older and don't buy much fashion now. My glasses are a fun way for me to change my look. Plus my eyesore is awful so I actually need them I have several pairs and love them!!! I have told people this is the best place for saving money. Love your sales. Receiving them is prompt. I guess I'm happy with everything. That's a nice feeling!

Lovethese crazy round glasses!12/19/2016
Comments

The temples are a bit stiff, but so far not a problem. I had the tortoise already, and I ordered another pair. Unfortunately a black pair was sent - not good! Don't want to pay to ship them back. Maybe I will paint them - pink maybe?

Scratch Easily

LOOOOOVE THESE!11/14/2016
Comments

Perfectly round glasses are my "signature" but they're getting very hard to find. And sometimes if you find a great frame, the lenses suck. Then I found these and ordered a pair and they are wonderful! They come in black, tortoise, and clear/black. They're good quality and reasonably priced and I am very happy to have found them! And when I had questions, the "Chat" function was easy and answered all my questions. I'' a happy camper!

For reading both paper books and ebooks. Certainly fun to wear. I'm now the most daring 65 year old male on the block. Okay, there wasn't a lot of competition. I'm still claiming the title. Live a little. Buy yourself a pair!

This pair was a good 1/4" larger all around than my previous pair, and therefore too large for my face. I'm small, and this pair encloses my eyebrows!!! I doubt I wear them except fir emergencies.
