Behind The Specs

Eyewear is by all means a necessity and a frill at the same time, but when it comes to quirky facts about it, can you think of any interesting pieces of information that is worth knowing?  If you do… well, lucky you I have dug out a few interesting facts about the so-beloved spectacles.

Eyewear has undergone quite a few transformations since its inception and it’s still evolving

Back in the day, around 1000 AD, the so-called reading stone, which represented a hemispherical lens, was first used as a reading-facilitating tool. It was quite simple, if we look at it from our modern, ultra tech point of view, but it did the job. The reading stone went on to take a more sophistica

What are Daniil Kvyat’s Sunglasses from the Austrian F1 GP (2014)?

Anyone watching the BBC highlights to the Austrian Formula 1 GP last night would have seen many of the drivers sporting cool sunglasses, from Oakley’s to Gucci’s, the drivers are always looking fashionable on the grid!

One driver caught my eye while speaking to David Coulthard on the grid, Daniil Kvyat (Torro Rosso), just what was he wearing?  I’ve looked but cannot see any identifying marks myself, they could possibly be from the Red Bull Eyewear collection although we’ve been unable to find them.

If you can ID these awesome lookin

Expendables 3. Sunglasses from the explosive new movie! Feat. Stallone, Schwarzenegger & Statham

The boys are back, older, grayer and more explosive than ever for the 3rd installment of the Expendables!

This time out Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Lundgren, Statham, Li and Crews are joined by new comers Banderas, Snipes, Gibson, Ford, Lutz… and some others (but unfortunately not including Chuck Norris, Van Damme or Bruce Willis this time… perhaps they finally realised they’re just too old for this sh*t?!) for more of the same run and gun action as the previous 2 movies.

It’s guaranteed to be a fun ‘leave your brain at the door’ popcorn movie, with more

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill Rock the Colourful Wayfarer Sunglasses in 22 Jump Street

The boys are back for the follow up to the fantastic 21 Jump Street, in the aptly named 22 Jump Street. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill reprise their roles as the two bungling undercover cops Schmidt and  Jenko and are sent to go deep undercover at a local college – what could possibly go wrong?!?

We’re big fans of the Wayfarer styled sunglasses so it’s great to see Schmidt and  Jenko going bold this summer with some bright red and blue models!  With summer so close I’m thinking of getting myself something a bit bolder and colourful – Are these two underachievi

Cyclops (James Marsden) wears Oakley RadarLock in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Following my previous post about X-Men: Days of Future Past, it has been revealed that Cyclops (James Marsden) is seen wearing a modified version of the Oakley RadarLock in a short scene in the latest movie.  Unfortunately, at this time there are no screen grabs available to show Cyclops wearing the frame (and I didn’t fancy popping the camera out in the middle of a packed cinema to get the shot either!).

This relationship between the X-Men franchise and Oakley stems back to 2000 when Cyclops was first featured wearing Oakley eye wear, equipped with Ruby-Quartz Lenses, to protect th
