RetroSpecs & Co.'s Buffalo Horn Inlay collection is another class of shade. The outfit has dedicated themselves to the discovery, research, and restoration of antique lens frames since 1992. In the ensuing 17 years they have established themselves as masters of their craft, catering to the high profile tastes of celebrities such as Kobe Bryant and Orlando Bloom.
The Buffalo Horn Inlay series specs are made from imported South Indian horn, adorned with 12k gold inlaid designs. These inlays are salvaged from registered and certified 1920-1950 era vintage glasses, flanking the temples in lieu of a logo. While they are certainly not cheap, starting at around $500, they do guarantee a chic look that's built to last.
RetroSpecs & Co. glasses are available through their numerous local dealerships or their L.A. showroom.
