Spot the difference – one of these frames is from 1969 and the other 2013, can you tell which is which?

OK, it’s not that hard, the top one is a 1969 frame that we finally got to replacing for one of our loyal contact lens wearers. However, it goes to show that if you keep anything long enough, it comes back into style.

Who would have though heavy plastic frames with upswept sides would be all the rage in 2013!? I could have taken any one of about 20 frames from our range that match this antique beauty except that is was 40 years ahead of its time in 1969. In fact it’s still in quite good nick so I might pop the lenses out, stick it on display and see if anyone will buy it…
