X-Men: Days of Future Past. Eyewear from the movie – Can you ID them?

Not only am I excited for the the next Transformers movie, but I’m also massively looking forward to seeing the latest Marvel film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Even though I’m beginning to lose count of the amount of X-Men movies made, I’ll be staggered if this is not a worldwide hit with movie fans!

Viewing the trailer (see below) we have noticed a few of the characters wearing either glasses or sunglasses frames…

Nicholas Hoult / Hank / Beast

Nicholas continues his role as Hank & Beast, even with super human powers he still needs to wear prescription ey... read more

David Starkey in Cool Glasses on Question Time

Any Question Time fans out there? David Starkey was present on last nights (1st March 2012) show rocking a cool pair of round style specs similar in style to the Persol PO3002V frames (below).  While many may not agree with his open minded opinions, we do think this frame style suits him remarkably well and goes go to show that being in your 60′s is no reason not to be adventurous with your choice of frame style.

Cebe-Kanga-Sunglasses-SelectSpecs

Thanks to everyone who submitted a photo of their baby or child wearing glasses or sunglasses for our latest competition to win a pair of Cébé Kanga Sunglasses.  There were some brilliant competition entries submitted and our cute-ness gauge topped out at 2,500 quebits of cute-ness before it broke and could no longer produce accurate measurements of cute-ness… needless to say, it was un-measurable.

Here is a selection of entries in no particular order.  It was incredibly difficult to pick a winner from all these fantastic entries, sadly we could only pick one; scroll to the ... read more
